Keynetix Releases First Product to Support AGS 4

Please note that the following news item is an archived article. Therefore any links and information may now be out of date.


Keynetix is delighted to announce today the release of an upgrade to KeyAGS, which now supports the brand new AGS 4 data format.   “We are very pleased to able to announce the first product anywhere in the world that is AGS 4 compatible” says Dr Roger Chandler, Technical Director at Keynetix. “The AGS data transfer format has transformed the way the SI industry has viewed data in many countries and we continue to be very strong supporters.”

The KeyAGS upgrade includes an AGS 4 data checker, routines to allow the easy importing of AGS 4 data into Microsoft Excel® and sophisticated export routines to allow users to create AGS data from new and historical Excel spreadsheets.

The new version of KeyAGS is available in two versions:

The KeyAGS Free Version includes full capabilities to check and import AGS data into Excel as well as some limited exporting capabilities.  “KeyAGS Free Version will allow everyone to explore the possibilities of AGS 4 data and the new format rules without delay or charge.” said Dr Chandler “Users can download, install and start to work with AGS 4 data within a few minutes.”

The KeyAGS Professional Version includes all the capabilities of the KeyAGS Free Version together with a comprehensive list of features to export AGS data from spreadsheets and fix errors present in existing AGS data files. Creating a new data format is like the Chicken and Egg problem.  It is difficult to review and comment on the capabilities of the format until a company provides software that allows users to do something with it. The timely arrival of KeyAGS provides this opportunity.

“We hope that the early introduction of this software will help the industry provide feedback to the AGS Committee on the new functions of AGS 4.  We have a whole host of additional functionality that we are working on for KeyAGS and our other AGS compatible products(which include HoleBASE, KeyLAB, Pocket SI and KeyLogbook) and any feedback we get will help us to make these features even better and in turn assist the AGS at their forthcoming Data Management Committee meeting” said Dr Chandler.

The upgrade includes all the AGS 3 and AGS 3.1 capabilities and can be downloaded from www.keynetix.com/keyags.   Users who have already purchased KeyAGS and have a maintenance agreement with Keynetix are able to upgrade free of charge to the KeyAGS Professional Version via their Keynetix website account.
