Computer processors are constantly evolving to provide a faster user-friendly experience. It seems hard to believe that once-upon-a-time 8-bit was the standard in computer programming. Now 64-bit is phasing out 32-bit.
Keeping your software up-to-date, especially your work stations, is increasingly important to maintaining the integrity of the programs you rely on to process orders. Upgrading programs on a regular basis ensures that your facility continues to run in an efficient manner to maximize your productivity.
Other advantages to staying current with your software programs include:
- Getting the latest software fixes for a better nesting experience.
- Enhanced functionality and new features.
- The software can be used to its maximum potential providing an optimized facility leading to a higher bottom line.
- Computer and software compatibility for a better operator experience.
Are you still using Windows XP or 8?
As operating software advances, so does the compatibility of software programs. Windows 10 will only run SigmaNEST X1 and higher, as Microsoft’s upgrade from XP to Windows 8 to Windows 10, significantly impacted the compatibility of versions SigmaNEST V7 or earlier.
Make sure your computers are as up-to-date as your software so that you don’t encounter any unnecessary problems associated with compatibility. For upgrades and future installs the minimum requirement is Windows 10 with a Windows Server 2012 R2.
Starting January 1, 2020, SigmaNEST will only be available in a 64-bit version to ensure you have the fastest and best nests. If you currently use a 32-bit version of SigmaNEST and are on maintenance, assistance in upgrading your computer programs is just a phone call away.
When you purchase your SigmaNEST software, we highly recommend purchasing a maintenance plan to help your future updates go as smoothly as possible.
