Development is our passion

The focus of our work lies on the continuous development of LinkAhead’s core functions. Most of this development work is done in the context of customer contracts. This gives our customers the opportunity to add much-needed features to LinkAhead in a timely manner and to be directly involved in the further design decisions of LinkAhead.
Sometimes the requirements are too specific such that a custom software solution is needed. The IndiScale team has already integrated LinkAhead into a wide variety of environments and developed custom-fit software solutions. We look forward to providing you with with exactly the tool that you need.

Integration and automation

You want efficiency, your team wants to work productively, we integrate LinkAhead into your workflows.

Real-world experience shows that software is accepted by users primarily when its use does not result in additional tasks that are initially perceived as superfluous. LinkAhead counteracts this with extensive automation options.

Together with you, we develop your usage scenarios and integrate LinkAhead such that the data finds its way into your data management ideally completely automatically. Years of experience with a wide variety of requirements and file formats make us reliable and efficient. Automated data import adapted to your specific requirements eliminates error sources and minimizes your workload.

Customization of LinkAhead to your needs

Dashboards: your quick overview

When you need a brief glance, one graph often says more than many tables, and specialized data views can help you stay focused on the essentials.

If you need an overview of the most important key figures for your daily work, must stay informed about new unexpected events, or simply don’t have the time to assess all the raw data, we recommend a customized dashboard view based on LinkAhead. This will display the most important data, aggregated information and statistics, and alerts on specific events if needed. We put together a dashboard for you that brings together all the information at a glance.

Also, if a fixed workflow should be defined for samples or workpieces, so that the next processing steps are displayed, this functionality can be easily integrated into a dashboard.

By the way: from the dashboard, you can jump to the associated raw data if you wish and thus at any time have the full flexibility of LinkAhead at your fingertips.

Your data on your website

Your website is your showcase on the web. If you want to publish data there, your visitors no longer have to go anywhere else. We would be happy to work out a concept with you on how a view of the data can best be integrated on your website, which data may be released and which interactions with it should be possible.
