Print Print this Article | Send to Colleague

London, U.K.-based NOS Microsystems is making the transition to industry 4.0 seamless for industrial automation customers around the world with its electronic software delivery (ESD) solution, getPlus®

The software delivery manager is lightweight at just 200kB (<1MB) on the client side, so small that it does not even require installation, but it packs an incredible punch, the company adds. It is not only a software manager, but an intelligent ecosystem that fully and easily integrates into clients’ existing databases—SAP, Oracle, any all others—to establish ESD or enhance the ratio of existing ESD with easy, self-service access to software updates.

getPlus links clients with their customer by perfectly connecting to suppliers’ current web interfaces. There, it provides an easy to use platform that "automizes" the updating process for customers. Upon software delivery, it generates a unique targeted sales point based on user data collected by the tiny titan. The end result ensures convenience, reduced support costs, superior life cycle maintenance of products, and revenue recognition right across the supply chain.

"System integration gets complicated when you have hundreds or thousands of different systems of various ages cooperating with each other. But the getPlus ecosystem makes it simple. It knows all user dependencies and entitlements, runs prechecks before download, and bit-by-bit identical ESD is guaranteed even in areas of limited bandwidth. It bypasses tax and customs regulations and the automation provider has a direct platform to inform customers of new devices or updates they may want or need," explained CEO of NOS Microsystems and engineer, Oliver Wessling. "getPlus automizes the automation process. It is the missing link between automation provider and client." 
getPlus is a sophisticated tool that performs like no other technology on the market, having been developed by experts in data security and solutions for delivery and transfer management. It already services over one billion downloads annually for clients around the world across several industries, including for Rockwell Automation and Nokia.
"It is the smallest, fastest, and most user-friendly transfer manager available and it allows providers to securely distribute any kind of digital content to clients. No maintenance, upgrades, or retention are required and getPlus works across all proxies and firewalls," added Wessling. 

Features and benefits of getPlus ecosystem:
  • Fully integrated. getPlus does all the work on both client and customer side. Can build entirely new system or upgrade existing environment including advanced customer dependencies and entitlements detection. 
  • No extra staffing needed. No manpower required from automation provider. Low implementation and maintenance costs with full front-end and back-end support by NOS Microsystems.
