Our Contribution

The developers of Snap-on are skilled in embedded GUI development. After a kick-off training with the whole team here at our premises in Munich, they started their project back in the U.S. and Ireland. Further support during the embedded software development helped the team to speed up their product launch.

The Result

The device features a four-way thumb pad for quick navigation, a 9″ capacitive color touchscreen display, and wireless compatibility. Its fast boot-up enables technicians to start quickly with their analysis. It also offers advanced graphing features and OEM-level data, along with OEM-specific scanner coverage for more than 50 countries and over 100 vehicle systems.

Embedded Wizard helps us to develop comprehensible products with competitive edges for mechanics due to an efficient workflow.
