Some 4K Fixes…
Thank Microsoft for some relief when it comes to legacy products. If you are using Quantum on a 4K screen you know that Crystal and Quantum become so tiny it is not practical. This is should help.
Right click on the Quantum icon and go to compatibility tab, change settings for all users.
Then change high DPI settings.
Quantum should now work in normal size.
Our friends at Ambry Hill Technologies have created an amazing cloud-based RFQ processing application called VistaQuote: RFQ Rapid Response.
VistaQuote is a cloud-based application designed to automate your RFQ and quoting workflow. Global sales teams can now manage RFQs and quotes inside one platform, using your real-time inventory information. New quote records are automatically created inside your local business software. In addition, VistaQuote deploys a first-ever automated export compliance solution that uses your new or existing VisualCompliance eCustoms subscription. Once eCustoms is activated, VistaQuote will automatically screen all of your new RFQs against global threats and bans; making the process of managing your export compliance program much easier. All of this technology is also available through the free VistaQuote mobile application for both Apple and Android devices.

Ryan has been working hard to create a proper analytics dashboard using the latest technology. Have a look at see what you think
As many of you have experienced… once implemented well Quantum Control is powerful software for your company operations. It has the flexibility to handle every day business process for companies large and small. The core structure of the platform offers most of the operations necessary to meet the needs of aviation businesses of all types. But things change. And businesses get smarter and data moves faster. But it must also needs to move everywhere. Quickly and easily.
Bezlio is a data mobility platform that interacts with your Quantum data across mobile, desktop, and web platforms. Not just reading and analyzing data but also allowing for input. Given enough development time, it can be a full web interface for Quantum where you have control over the user experience. For both internal and external users.
From a customer requesting a quote on a part you have in inventory and looking up a tracking number on the order they placed the other day to a worker recording labor time and the parts he used on a work order. Even the executives can now have access to live sales statistics and KPI data. And if you have Quantum Accounting we can even deliver live financial statements, record credit card payments on open invoices/AP. From nearly any MS Windows, Apple, or Android device connected to the internet.
With data flexibility achieved the next question is often data security. This dashboard system is based upon pre-shared encryption key (AES256 standard) and predefined sql statements to interact with the Quantum database. This ensures that nothing but the expected data can be input and only from authorized users. This is the current public standard defined by the NSA to protect top secret classified data.
Another data security and mobility measure is that Bezlio does not store any data longer than is necessary to complete a function at both the device and server level. At the device level this means that remote offline workers, maybe a mechanic repairing a DHC-3 deep in the Arctic, can record the parts they used, the time they spent, and the expenses they incurred on their mobile device even when offline far from any cell network. And as soon as the user is back on the internet their data will upload. Directly into Quantum. At the server level this means that Bezlio does not store your data any longer than it takes to pass the request to the Quantum server. That request consists only of the data that fits into the predefined sql statement that will perform the desired action. And it is not possible to change the operational sql statement without direct access to the server.
Please review their offering at Bezlio and the screenshots of options we can build. They offer a compelling option for interacting with your Quantum reporting, analysis, and operational data in real time… wherever you are.
