    Version 1.7.2 - Released October 2020

    In Version 1.7.2 we provided optimisation of the synchronisation of data, where data is sent in bulk using a paging mechanism.   We also optimised some of the user interface components, especially when setting Make/Model/Colour on vehicles with no such information.

    • Improves the database-tidy process in the splash screen, a button is provided which can be optionally pressed, but will be needed after every other audit to clean ‘old’ audit data down – but only after the recent audit has been fully uploaded, reported, and known to be completed.
    • Improved the mechanism for setting make, model, colour in the audit and reconciliation screens.
    Known Issues / Considerations
    • Install via Support App, installed on Docking PC

      Version 1.7 - Released July 2020

      In Version 1.7.2 we provided an enhancement volume sizing of stock audit lists.  The app will now support around ~26k entries.   Note that the legacy nature of the tech stack has deficiencies which makes for slow synchronisation.

      • Motorola EMDK
      • Imense OCR (ANPR Engine)
      New Features, RFCs and other changes
      • (RFC F0000210) Synchronisation and Reconciliation mechanism.  Support for around 26k entries in a stock list.
      • User Interface refresh.
      Bug Fixes
      • Resolved a defect with synchronising stock audit sites from the server.
      • Resolved compile issues with Stored Procedures, emanating from SQL Server version upgrade.
      • Improved the mechanism for setting make, model, colour in the audit and reconciliation screens.
      Known Issues / Considerations
      • Install via Support App, installed on Docking PC
      • Upgrade server-side components prior to upgrading Client App on devices.
