Toptech's Unified Automation Platform (UAP) Featured in Biodiesel Magazine
In Q2 2012, Toptech Systems is scheduled to release Unified Automation Platform (UAP), an automation platform unlike any other offered today. Through UAP, Toptech integrates the functionality of MultiLoad II and Toptech Data Services (TDS) which combines cutting-edge technology with the power and reliability of existing products. The result is a solution that allows clients to take advantage of the flexibility and scalability of cloud computing in concert with the process control features of MultiLoad.
MultiLoad II serves as the control platform where data is stored, while TDS serves as the user interface where data is managed. Thus, MultiLoad II performs all preset functionality, driver validations, BOL printing and load data transmission to TDS. In turn, TDS performs all data management, reporting, inventory management, receipt reconciliation and balancing functions. Additionally, the feature set of UAP is designed to be highly modular and scalable. This means the customer only pays for the features they need.
What’s more, MultiLoad II can now be used wirelessly, which allows it to be utilized in virtually any environment; and because TDS now serves as a full-featured hosted automation platform, there is no software to install on site and all software updates are managed within Toptech’s hosted environment. Additionally, UAP will eliminate the typical license fees associated with deployed systems, which greatly reduces the initial investment required and makes the platform extremely appealing for smaller facilities.
UAP is designed to provide flexibility and scalability that extends beyond the limitations of a deployed system. The Q2 2012 release of UAP will serve to usher in a new world of possibilities.
