1. When is a software update necessary?
Hegewald & Peschke programs the testing software in-house and always optimizes it according to market trends and requirements. Consequently, new software versions are continuously generated and delivered. Nevertheless, in our opinion, a software update is only necessary if your requirements demand it. This can be the case, for example, if the operating PC of the testing machine is changed to a new operating system. Our testing software LabMaster can then be easily and comfortably updated with an update. The update can be carried out by remote maintenance or on site. Of course, software updates offer the user not only compatibility with new operating systems but also new possibilities with regard to important functionalities or also in terms of the graphical layout. Hegewald & Peschke always pays attention to downward compatibility. For example, the user can work with the familiar or the new layout. A current software version can equally be applied to an older control system.
Our service team will be happy to advise you on this.
Due to our open software concept, updates resulting from changes in standards or recipes that are liable to costs are not necessary. Our free application support will be happy to assist you at any time. You can find the contact details here.
2. What is the pricing for updates?
The update price usually corresponds to a three-digit amount and actually depends on the scope of services. Thus, extended software modules and peripherals to be considered have an influence on the costs.
