Webshare 2Go

Post by graham.watson » Fri Mar 17, 2017 1:56 am

Does anyone know if Faro have now made the webshare 2Go a pay for app. In the app store it is shown as so.
I thought if you had valid maintenance it was free?

If you have maintenance it is free. I had to call them and get them to activate mine. They dont do that unless you ask apparently. :?

Thanks. Sounds par for the course.
Why do you always have to fill in a request form when you download from the App store?

When I asked a similar question the answer I got was that they have been buying too many companies so their team is underequipped to deal with it all.... I really just wanted to say wtf..

WTF - Agreed - You will find once a company get to a certain size after acquiring others - Especially European Companies holding a extreme load of debt - the ones not indebted are awesome - the hatchet men arrive and CUT the living crap out of the personnel, its not the guys working within's fault. Usually, the guys that are any good - long time employees are let go, as the company wants a complaint, low confidence, nervous, minimal competent level , but still effective work Force - I have seen it happen here in NZ. Large company -taken over, best guys sacked - now accounts moved to India, 120 days to get paid - hardly worth working for them as the poor guys left - have zero decision making ability. I'm surprised they can handle it. As they are qualified Engineers, treated like children.

The Hatch Men are not technically minded - they just want a improved bottom line.

You may ask - why does Nick have this opinion. Well the Hatchet - got me when I was 28. And on that day I vouded to never let someone do that to me again. Hence, I started my own company. Now I am the only hatchet man I need to watch out for,. See image to the right. One of the guys that was let go at the company I am talking about was exactly my age. Some 2 years ago. He had zero business owner ship skills, zero ability to generate income, wife, kids, mortgage. I looked at him when he told me - and all that could go though my mind was this is exactly what I - decided would not happen to me in 1999.

Life Lesson is now - concluded, please carry on

Hello William.

My appologies for such an answer from a member of the FARO staff!
This was neither helpful, nor true.

If you install the latest version of SCENE, the WebShare2Go plug-in will be installed automatically during the set up.
Also the license should be activated together with your SCENE license once you have an active SCENE maintenance contract.

Best regards,

Thanks Oliver.

I noticed when I updated my version of Scene that the websharetoGo App was still there, but had to be reactivated
