DAT instruments produces instruments to record data for any kind of special foundation, geotechnical and mineral investigation jobs: jet grouting, cement injection, GIN, TAM grouting, compensation grouting, drilling, DAC test, CFA, deep mixing, soil mixing, vibroflotation, sand compaction piles, diaphragm walls, hydromills and Lugeon tests. Data loggers such as JET DSP 100, JET SDP, JET 4000 AME, DAT TinyLog and DAT WideLog carry out the recording process.
While working, these instruments acquire data that are then downloaded via a USB drive or to the Internet and are managed using Easy DAT software.
DAT WideLog and DAT TinyLog are already creating files compatible with Microsoft Excel and OpenOffice Calc and they can be connected to Easy DAT software to print reports in graphic format and to store data. A unique software to manage all DAT instruments equipment avoiding installing useless applications on the PC.
Following the updated market trend, DAT instruments has started a subscription service. In this way, it is possible to streamline the use of the software and save money. It is possible to pay for a 12-month subscription, which is cheaper than buying the software. After 12 months, the customer can choose to confirm another 12-month subscription or stop it.
Customer care is included in the software subscription, together with remote assistance. In addition to that, if the customer does not want to install this software, it is possible to book a remote assistance meeting with DAT instruments technical staff, who will remotely install the software on customer's PC.
Why should the customer choose to subscribe instead of buying the software? Amedeo Valoroso, DAT instruments CEO and owner, answers: "Everyone who has bought software with an unlimited licence knows that this is untrue. Operating systems are continuously updated and hardware becomes too old. The DOS programs were not suitable for Windows. Windows 98 software did not work with Windows NT and XP. In addition to that, a lot of software perfect for Windows 7 is no longer suitable for Windows 10. In this case, the user needs to buy the updated version of the software, spending a lot of money. For this reason, the software subscription is more convenient.
"While the subscription is valid, the software is always up to date, available even for the latest Windows version and with any customer care service needed.
"Another reason why it is more convenient to subscribe instead of buying is that you can use it when you need it. If after 12 months you don't need to work with data any more, it is possible to suspend the subscription and choose to have the software active again, in the most updated version, when needed, maybe after some years."
Easy DAT is available in Italian, English and French languages but it is possible to create reports in other languages, as it is possible to customise texts to add to graphics.
While subscribed, the software is always up-to-date with updates, installation and customer care included in the annual fee.
Three levels of 12-moth subscription packages are available: Easy DAT - BASE, Easy DAT - SILVER and Easy DAT - GOLD. The difference is in the number of data loggers it is possible to connect and in functions included. If necessary, upgrades can be made from one level to the next higher one by simply paying the difference.
