Overview Metrosoft QUARTIS

METROSOFT QUARTIS - YOU DECIDE THE PROGRAM

Significant measurement results - fast an easy!

With Metrosoft QUARTIS, WENZEL Metromec introduces a new software generation into the market. Metrosoft QUARTIS is the first measuring software using the trendsetting Microsoft® Office Fluent™ user interface. Metrosoft QUARTIS is based on the decade long knowledge of one of the most successful measuring software providers worldwide.

The result is measuring software with an uncluttered, flexible and result orientated workspace that reduces distraction for users so they can spend more time and energy focused on their work.

Measurement results can be generated even faster and easier.

THE RIBBON - LESS IS MORE

The ribbon - less is moreContextual tabs bring needed functionality to the user's at the most appropriate time.

In the Metrosoft QUARTIS user interface the traditional menus and toolbars have been replaced by the Ribbon - a device that presents commands organized into a set of tabs. Long-winded searching for the needed commands is a thing of the past. Metrosoft QUARTIS accelerates personal workflow tremendously and guarantees more efficiency in daily business.
