Over recent months, the team at Sonitus Systems has been busy behind the scenes working on upgrades to our system and we are delighted to announce that the latest version of the Sonitus Cloud will be released tomorrow, September 20th.This upgrade is set to enhance your user experience and provide your customers with a more streamlined platform.
Release Date and Maintenance Window
Please note that a brief maintenance window is scheduled from September 19th, 2023, 23:00 (IST) to September 20th, 2023, 03:00 (IST). During this period, we anticipate minimal downtime, although some temporary outages are unavoidable. We appreciate your patience during this necessary maintenance.
Why the Upgrade?
You might wonder why we’re making these changes if the current system isn’t broken. The answer is simple: progress. The Sonitus Cloud is being upgraded to leverage the most modern web tools available. This upgrade will primarily focus on enhancing the aesthetics and functionality of the website without fundamentally altering how customers interact with it.
Key Highlights of the Upgrade
Here’s a sneak peek at what you can expect from this upgrade:
1. Better Mobile Responsiveness: Enjoy an improved experience when accessing Sonitus Cloud on your mobile devices.
2. Enhanced Workflows: Setting up projects and monitors will become more straightforward, reducing the chance of oversights.
3. Improved Search Functionality: Managing projects, monitors, and users will become significantly faster and more efficient.
While users will get a fresh, modern interface, the overall structure of the Sonitus Cloud site will remain familiar. Here are some of the improvements you can look forward to:
1. Revamped Screen Layouts: The most relevant data will be prominently displayed.
2. Enhanced Data Tables: Improved sorting, filtering, and data export capabilities in all data tables.
3. Faster Data Loading: Overall, the user experience will be much faster due to substantial improvements in data loading.
4. Streamlined Wizards: Adding users, projects, and monitors will be easier with step-by-step screens and improved validations.
5. Better Mobile Experience: Sonitus Cloud will be more user-friendly on mobile and tablet devices.
6. New Charting Tools: Gain more control over your graphs and expand your data export options.
Data Safety and Alerts
Rest assured, no data will be lost during the upgrade. Monitors will continue to report, and all measured data will be uploaded to our servers as usual. However, during the maintenance period, which is expected to last less than 2 hours, no alerts will be sent via email or SMS. Automated reporting will remain unaffected.
The best part is that your users won’t have to do a thing. The upgrade will happen seamlessly in the background, and all they need to do is enjoy the enhanced features. During the downtime, a maintenance message will be displayed on the Sonitus Cloud login page.
No Major New Features, but Continuous Improvement
While there are no major new features being launched at this time, we have listened to customer feedback and made enhancements to existing tools to simplify your work. This upgrade represents an investment in the future of Sonitus Cloud. It enables us to continue building faster, more user-friendly tools for you and your stakeholders.
Training and Support
If you or your team require help navigating the upgraded platform, simply get in touch with us directly to arrange a training session. Additionally, we will be uploading training videos to the Sonitus Cloud support section, allowing users to learn at their own pace.
