Although effective data management is essential for every company, many companies have redundant data sources – so-called data silos. Data cannot be linked together. The right information is difficult or impossible to access. The result: limited transparency of customer usage patterns and service requirements, inefficient service processes that lead to high costs and long waiting times, and a lack of insight into customer satisfaction and loyalty. These challenges are solved with the Softing TDX.server data platform.
Softing TDX.server is the central system of the TDX tool chain. It is based on state-of-the-art cloud technology and enables vehicle and component manufacturers to react intelligently and dynamically to the specific requirements of individual vehicles and control units via the service tester.The centralized system collects, stores, processes and analyzes data from various sources and presents it clearly. It has a database in which all relevant data, such as user login information, documents, software statuses and versions, vehicle reports, customer feedback and licenses, are stored centrally as a "single point of truth". Various web applications such as project, workshop or license management support users and administrators in the implementation and maintenance of aftersales applications and processes.
Softing TDX.server provides a comprehensive overview of your service and workshop testers. It provides a secure and scalable infrastructure for managing large amounts of data, enabling organizations to gain new insights and make informed decisions based on this data. A service tester based on a well-designed data platform improves operational efficiency, reduces costs and drives innovation.
The tester content is developed and customized using the content engineering tool Softing TDX.studio. Here, the business logic can be defined, new diagnostic content such as diagnostic data and repair instructions can be created, templates can be 100% customized according to corporate design specifications, languages, roles and rights can be managed and existing content can be maintained. Softing TDX.studio makes it easy to create, develop and maintain a customized diagnostic tester. With the integrated OTX development environment and debugging functions, you have full control over all your diagnostic functions.
From highly specialized technicians to unskilled workers, Softing TDX ensures that everyone on your service team has the right tools and support. By using standards such as ISO 22900 MVCI server, OTX runtime and ODX data, you can draw on proven tester components and functions to optimize your diagnostic processes. Once processes have been created, they can be easily reused throughout the entire vehicle life cycle.
Softing TDX.server acts as a central connection node to all workshop testers (Softing TDX.workshop), the content engineering suite (Softing TDX.studio) and the customer's databases and management systems. You have the option of operating Softing TDX.server in your own IT infrastructure or in the cloud – depending on your requirements and preferences.
