Melbourne-based software and services vendor, Hardcat, is going on a partner recruitment drive after releasing its fourth generation asset tracking software and launching a partner-dedicated website.
The new channel website will feature a range of marketing and training courses as well as technical support.
“We are now putting the finishing touches on a concurrent site for our partners which will have all of the marketing and training resources they need," Hardcat managing director, Dan Drum, said. "It will be the spearhead of our aggressive outreach to recruit new partners."
According to Drum, Hardcat V4 is the most comprehensive overhaul undertaken on its flagship asset management solution in the 25-plus year history of the company.
“Hardcat has been around since 1986 and has continuously evolved as new technology trends such as bar-code scanning, mobile handheld devices and cloud computing were embraced by business,” Drum said. “Our V4 iteration is a rebuild from the ground up that has improved every aspect of the software."
Version 4 features a new graphic interface that incorporates flexible and customisable, grid-format database construction capability and is more intuitive in the way it stores, links and retrieves relevant data.
It also features a range of pro-active, automated alert systems ensuring organisations are aware of all significant lifecycle milestones across their assets.
“If an asset is coming off warranty, exceeding some sort of performance threshold or due for scheduled maintenance, the Hardcat system will automatically send an email notification to the appropriate person as a reminder that action is required,” he said.
In-house development teams can also access the core application programming interface (API) so that customers can tweak the front end according to their personal requirements.
It also has an enhanced bulk change capabilities, editable, user-definable fields, multi-lingual capability and support for use on all popular smart-phone platforms.
“Users can now easily define the subsets of data they wish to modify and the actual changes they want with all of these changes being recorded in the comprehensive audit trail,” he said.
Hardcat has about 40 full time staff and its customer base is mainly made of up defence, law enforcement, hospitality, resources and energy companies.
