Introducing TestWise 2017: Advanced software made simple - for faster, more intuitive testing

17 July 2017

TestWise is our flagship software, developed by Textile Technologists - for Textile Technologists, and built with the operator in mind for faster, more intuitive testing for more efficient and reliable results. 

Our latest software release, TestWise 2017, is here - offering an improved user experience and more advanced capabilities, to address the needs and challenges of today’s testing laboratories. TestWise Test Analysis Software helps to increase efficiency and productivity within your laboratory.

"Compared with some of the more complicated software systems on the market, which require operators to spend days learning how to use the software;  we appreciate that operator training is a burden for busy laboratories, which is why TestWise has been designed with a simple and intuitive user-interface. No operator training is required, so you can begin testing within just 3 clicks. This improves efficiency and reduces downtime," says Peter Goodwin, Head of Technical at James Heal.

What's New?

With TestWise 2017, we have incorporated these benefits with new features and functionality, helping you to optimise your laboratory efficiciency, and maximise productivity with reliable results.

New upgraded features include:

  • 100+ New Test Procedures - now over 500 Standards
  • Sportswear Focus - new calculations added for adidas, Puma and Under Armour. It includes preloaded standards for compression and energy loss testing and hysteresis for stretch fabrics containing elastomeric yarns
  • Improved Functionality - new ‘Auto-accept’ function - less clicks to perform tests. Observations are now defined by the standards making them more specific and more relevant to the test
  • New 'Export to PDF' option - all reporting can be saved directly to PDF, speeding up the process of producing the final test report
