December 2020 Newsletter

From all of us at DSL Systems, we wish you a wonderful Christmas and hope you have an enjoyable break. We are looking forward to a much more settled 2021 with some exciting new software releases.

Holidays over the Christmas period

Please note that our office will be closed for the Christmas period from 12:00 on Thursday 24th December 2020.  We will re-open on Monday 4th January 2021.

If you have a software maintenance contract or your system is currently under warranty, the out of hours support number will continue to operate normally over this period (except Christmas day) for urgent software issues only. We would be grateful if non-urgent matters could wait until 4th January.

Charity support

This Christmas, DSL Systems have donated to Lincolnshire & Nottinghamshire Air Ambulance and Emmanuel House who support homeless and vulnerable people in Nottingham.

Major AutoPilot4Feed new release

A major revision to the AutoPilot4Feed software will be launched in 2021 which will revolutionise support and upgrades. Version 10 will be the first mill control package to have continual upgrades, eliminating disruptive major upgrades.

The release features a completely revised slick user interface layer which is web based with smart phone compatibility. The software subscription will include regular updates, patches and 24/7 support. More information will follow in the new year.
