Dayton, Ohio, April 14, 2017—An update to GAGEpack 12 from PQ Systems demonstrates the commitment of developers to respond to customer needs with enhanced ease of use and improved user interface.

In this updated version, visual improvements streamline the window view by collapsing the navigation panel and moving it to the ribbon, making filter information more readily available, and altering less-used commands by invoking them through buttons.

Additional improvements to the user experience include:

  • The ability to search within a specified column
  • A new “all calibrations” filter type on the history tab shows both internal and external calibrations
  • “Show failed calibrations only” checkbox added in history list for internal and external calibrations
  • Gage filters are now integrated with the Dashboard

Customers with maintenance agreements will receive the updated solution automatically, allowing for a smooth transition to the use of new features.

GAGEpack is a powerful gage calibration solution that maintains complete histories of measurement devices, instruments, and gages. To guarantee timely calibration, the software provides a variety of tools, such as:

o   Calibration schedules and reports
o   Alerts about failed and past due calibrations
o   Gage location and status tracking
o   Gage repair records
o   Audit trail for traceability
o   A Task tab with a “To do” list
o   Gage event alert system
