Dream Report is an Approved Solution
In July of 2014, Yokogawa partnered with Ocean Data Systems to develop a Temperature Uniformity Survey software solution. As part of this agreement to deliver connectivity for TUS, Ocean Data Systems also added Recorder connectivity to Dream Report. Yokogawa is a member of the Ocean Data System’s Proven Partner program. This program ensures that our products have been tested together and that our two companies will work to supporting joint applications for the benefit of our customers.
“As a leader in the data acquisition market, we are commonly asked for concise report generation based on TUS run data. We’ve offered Excel=based tools in the past, but would like to offer a more reliable and fit-for-purpose solution,” said Aaron Lee, Product Manager for Yokogawa Corporation of America. “We feel Ocean Data Systems, makers of Dream Report, is an excellent partner to develop a custom TUS solution for us.”
