B. Mastertech VCI Diagnostic Application Enhancements
Software Strategy

Software which enables Mastertech VCI functions can be thought of as separate
applications, each of which performs a specific set of tasks. The main
specialized areas are Shop Foreman Pro, VCI Manager, and Virtual Mastertech.

   ·   Shop Foreman Pro is the means by which users interact with the
       Mastertech VCI. The device is controlled by and sends data to Shop
       Foreman Pro.

   ·   VCI Manager provides a means for software updates, checking device
       status, and personal computer to device connection setup features.

   ·   Finally, the Virtual Mastertech is the software component which provides
       a foundation where premium MTS 3100 software, which has been used by
       many diagnostic technicians for years now, is used on today’s vehicles on
       an all-new industry leading hardware device.

Providing this background information to the reader is important such that all
users commonly understand that Virtual Mastertech coverage and it’s
functionality will rise and expand to a level equal too MTS 3100 Mastertech
capabilities. In subsequent Mastertech VCI software releases, this trend will
continue where both MTS 3100 Mastertech and Mastertech VCI software
versions are functionally equal, thereby providing more than one platform with
the same diagnostic capability!

So you now know our thinking. Straight-away our goals are to far surpass any
previous Bosch Diagnostics product offering with features that make you, the
Technician who intends to excel at a skilled art, the best that you can be.
