Newsletter November 2018

We are proud to announce that on 5th November we have released our biggest update for IDEA YACHT since its initial release in 2012.
Version 2018.3 is a major milestone in the lifecycle of our product and brings a bunch of new features. The most significant change is the look and feel of IDEA YACHT. With this version we introduce a new design for our software and new modern libraries to improve usability and response times to make working with IDEA more comfortable and intuitive.

Apart from the design and the modernization of the backend we implemented some new functionalities:

• Calendar: Events can be entered into a calendar to trigger maintenance and show upcoming tasks and events in an easy to grasp overview
• Trash Bin: A trash bin holds all deleted items from the vessel database comparable to the windows trash bin. If items were deleted from the vessel database by accident the contents can be restored by the crew.

Survey: Training at IDEA Office

We are currently evaluating the options for training facilities in our offices.
The best way to do this is by involving you in the process. That’s why we prepared a short survey to gather feedback from our customers.

Training Survey

We would appreciate it, if you could offer some time to answer the survey and help us to improve our services.

Thanks and best regards
