New Azure Agent app from SMAR Azure
SMAR Azure is using this year’s METSTRADE to share its newest app – Azure Agent – developed to aid the sail design process.
The application can be used by sales teams when measuring a boat or by clients directly if measuring themselves.
It allows the user to enter the rig measurements of a boat directly into the app and guides them through the measurements needed.
All measurements can be sent electronically to the sail designer who can automatically create a project file using the firm’s AzureProject software.
The app offers complete traceability as the developers say measurements will never be lost and rig data will remain consistent.
Following its release in September, SMAR Azure reports the app has been very well received with ‘uptake so far exceeding expectations’.
"Users particularly compliment the option to attach photos, ensuring hard-to-describe areas are easily shared and the error checking routines that highlight missing data or possible errors in values - both of which save valuable time in the measurement and design process," said a company spokesman.
The app is free to download in GooglePlay and AppStore, ensuring it can be distributed to anyone who wants to measure boats themselves.
It is however, a support tool for the AzureProject suite.
SMAR Azure will show this and other current and future software developments on stand 01.275.
