PrüfExpress Changelog 2024.05

Because ‘good’ does not mean ‘perfect’

Welcome to our changelog page. You probably know the old saying:
“Never change a running system”. At PrüfExpress, we see things a little differently. We believe that good systems work, but the best systems are constantly evolving.

This is where we document every change, every improvement and every new feature of our software. Whether it’s a major feature update, a bug fix that you may never have noticed, or a small adjustment that makes working with our software even more enjoyable – you’ll find it here.

With this changelog, we want to ensure complete transparency and keep you up to date with our ongoing efforts to improve our software. Because change is the engine of progress, and we are proud to walk this path together with you.

New features in 2024.05

Public website

PrüfExpress is expanding its services to include a publicly accessible website that serves as a digital type plate and provides access to master data and inspection intervals for work equipment. This intuitive platform offers an easy way to view important information, the last and next inspection dates and current photos via NFC or QR code technology without logging in.

Fault messages

To optimize the service process and speed up response times in the event of problems, PrüfExpress now offers an extended fault reporting function. Users can submit fault reports efficiently and directly via the public website, which significantly reduces processing time and improves the user experience.

Multiple test plans

With the latest update of PrüfExpress, you can now assign multiple inspection plans to each inspection group. This allows you to implement different test cycles and specific test questions within the same group to ensure precise and customized monitoring of work equipment according to different requirements.
