  • Check tracking work orders and their status in the network.

  • Store data for users for consultation when needed.

  • Provide backup and check the history.

  • Document management, testing information and files.

asanetwork interfaces, data formats and data transfer protocols are standardized and based on the Internet, XML.

With the results of the test,, it is possible to access the workshop, on-line to take the test or later, to: check the stock of a piece, request it via e-commerce, linking information, an assessment tool, consult technical information, access the manufacturer in the hot-line...
