The innovative app, which makes the servicing of tyre pressure monitoring systems much easier, has been ranked among the top 20 solutions honoured with the INNOVATIONSPREIS-IT 2016 award by ‘Initiative Mittelstand’, an initiative of the medium-scale business segment.

A jury of experts from the IT industry, the world of science and the media evaluated and rated more than 5,000 products and solutions entered in 38 categories according to the criteria innovative content (product maturity and future-orientation), benefits (effects on profitability, increased efficiency) and applicability for utilisation in the medium-scale business segment. The prize was awarded to the best innovations in each of the respective categories.
