IDEA On The Horizon – July 2024

Welcome to ‘IDEA On The Horizon’, where we take a look at what is on the development roadmap for the IDEA Universe over the coming month, and what to look forward to in the latest release.

With summer season in the Med well underway, we know that you’ll be utilising IDEA YACHT and IDEA FLEET alot, so we’ll be working to ensure that your user experience is to the highest standard and that bugs and fixes are addressed promptly.

Here’s what is on the horizon at IDEA Data Solutions for July 2024.
