ASAP Systems Releases the Redesigned User Interface for Passport 6.0

Posted September 3, 2014

ASAP Systems has released an impressive redesigned user interface that allows users to choose between a few user interfaces, color schemes, and fonts, among other settings. The new Passport 6.0 user interface settings were engineered to serve a variety of technical skill levels, ranging from beginner to advanced. Performing inventory and asset management tasks is now easier and faster than ever before.

In the user settings area, users can now choose between the “classic” user interface view, and the new “multi-pane” or “tile” views. Passport users that are most comfortable navigating through the “classic” view can continue to use it with the same functionalities. Alternatively, for Windows users, the “tile” view mimics the look and feel of the latest Windows OS user interface. It displays tiles for different transactions, reports, and graphical analysis as the user scrolls horizontally. In the “multi-pane” view, designed for beginner users, there is a step-by-step “quick start” dashboard, a lifecycle diagram, recent transactions, and a graphical “snapshot” of data. Beyond the visual improvement of the user interface, the lasting effect of the upgrade is amplified inventory control for new and experienced users.
