Haar near Munich, December 11, 2023 – Softing Automotive Electronics, a 100% subsidiary of Softing AG, has been commissioned by a North American manufacturer of special vehicles to supply a complete package for the creation of a diagnostic system to service its vehicles.
The major contract consists of licenses for the Softing TDX modular system, a maintenance contract for 5 years, services to adapt to the special requirements in the servicing of the vehicles as well as hardware for connecting to the vehicles. Over the next 5 years, a turnover of significantly more than EUR 3 million is expected. The majority of revenue is attributable to software licenses and software maintenance fees. Around EUR 1.5 million will impact cash flow in the first quarter of 2024.
René Schneider, Managing Director of Softing Automotive Electronics GmbH together with Oliver Fieth, commented: "Softing Automotive Electronics has already focused on hardware and software services for vehicle communication over the entire life cycle from development to production and service of vehicles of all drive types. We are proud that yet another leading manufacturer has decided to build a complete service system based on the Softing tool landscape around TDX."
Softing’s TDX modular system is used to create and maintain an individual, modular workshop tester. With the aim of making diagnostics as efficient as possible and thus saving time, the toolbox offers optimal tool support along the dedicated DESIGN – MANAGE – WORK workflow. Manufacturers of vehicles, mobile machines and their control units can thus provide ECU- and problem-specific repair and maintenance procedures within their global service network, taking into account additional security aspects. All necessary diagnostic functions for fault localization, troubleshooting and commissioning of individual components or entire vehicles are supported. User management and rollout are cloud-based.
