Release Update – July 2022
This is a marXact monthly update for our clients!
As a UNI user, we want to help you to get the most out of your receiver. We hereby send you the Release Update mail for June, and tell you everything about the features and improvements that become available during this month.
We keep you informed about new functions and possibilities, conveniently collected in one comprehensive mailing, and on a monthly basis. In these mailings, we tell about what becomes possible and what improvements have already been implemented.
We combine the (start of) new features in monthly updates: these Release Updates mailings. In this edition, you can read more about major updates we are working on: machine control and UNI-Collect. We also tell you which language will be added to the UNI-Solutions next. We conclude with the importance of implementing structural improvements and how our developers support our UNI-Support team – and therefore you.
Feel free to forward this e-mail to colleagues who survey with the UNI-GR1 and/or process data in the UNI-Cloud, so that they are also informed of what’s to come or could register for our upcoming Demo Drinks on July 21st – in two days.

More machine control
In the Release Update of June, we mentioned machine control with marXact already. At the moment, we have built a strong foundation and are moving from a stable and fluid concept to the real machine control that you can use. This will take some time and effort, but we’ll be more than happy to show it to you soon.
This summer, we are organizing a Sneak Preview Event where we will tell you more about the possibilities that centimetre accurate surveying and machine control offer you! For this purpose, specific invitations are sent to organizations that have already shown interest. Would you also like to be there or do you have a specific question? Send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll get back to you in due time!
The UNI-Collect update
Creating the UNI-Collect surveying app is a precious thing. A great development in which we are happy to invest a lot of time and energy, but something that is not ready 1-2-3. We’ve written about this before, so it’s good to give you a summary update in this Release Update.
The foundation for the app has been laid and we are currently adding more features to it. We perform tests with every added feature. We know for sure that the final app that is launched is as strong as possible and can be used in the field, by doing so. We implemented the survey settings in UNI-Collect recently, these are currently being tested by a number of colleagues.
We are working hard to add order management to this new app as well. This allows you to place an order or view your current one yourself, immediately extend your UNI-Cloud & Support subscription, and manage your orders and UNI-Cloud account with 1 account. Handy!
Adding languages, German
If you survey in different countries or have colleagues who speak a different language than you do, you are probably familiar with the multiple languages in our software already. German will be added soon and native speakers of German will be able to take the steps for successful surveying easily.
Fix bugs, expand existing survey options, and give you the full surveying experience. In addition to the activities mentioned above, these are 3 ongoing tasks that we take very seriously.
So serious that we decided to structurally assign one developer as UNI-Support support recently. When a UNI user calls with a very specific question or problem and our support team does not have the answer immediately, they can rely on the knowledge of one of our developers to help them further. He or she can even look ‘behind the scenes’ and may have been involved in developing that specific function, page, or process. The solution is therefore found faster and more often. By doing this, we also expand UNI-Support for you!
What steps do you need to take?
Not a lot, if we are completely honest with you. All updates are done
automatically and while you are out surveying in the field or preparing tasks in the office. You might need to turn your UNI-GR1 off and on again, but only when the update stops unexpectedly. After turning it on again, you are good to go.
More Release Updates coming up
So many new releases are coming, including expanding the UNI-Cloud project surveying and editing capabilities, new languages, additional coordinate systems, and additional options for layers and features. More on this in new Release Updates!
We will send you a new email full of information about new functions and improvements next month, so that you are able to take full advantage of these new possibilities as well.
As always you can count on our help whenever you need to. Get in touch by telephone using +31 (0) 70 700 7917 whenever you use UNI-Support and/or see the extensive knowledge base for answers to frequently asked questions.
You can also sign up for our Demo Drinks! Our signature event is back and we are able to teach you all about these new features in person on July 21st.
