Roadmap

The following roadmap refers to program updates and new features which have already been implemented. We are constantly improving Pathfinder in order to better meet our customers’ needs. We want to offer you an innovative tool that is constantly evolving to support your network documentation.

Little effort, great results.

2017

nagios Interface to active Management Software 2017
Programs like Nagios are designed to monitor complex IT infrastructure and provide administrators with a collection of modules to supervise networks, hosts and special services. Due to popular requests we plan to implement an interface to selected network management systems in 2015 to allow administrators the use of different systems in combination with Pathfinder.

2015/2016

This new feature will enable users to add cable tray points to cable trays and document cable routes.  You can add any number of cable tray points by drag & drop. The detailled documentation of utility lines ensures that any tray can be found on site, which is important for maintenance and future planning.

The former object permission system will be broadly extended in Q3/2015. The new version will offer the additional option to define permissions at the object level. This way, the user can assign individual read and write permissions  to team members at different locations. This feature will also be available for team members with different job descriptions.
