SkyWin® One

What's this?

SkyWin® One is the latest and greatest version for administrating your dropzone. It will eventually replace our legacy Windows-client ("SkyWin") and our previous SkyWin API component.

(If you have been using the SkyWin API component - you need to manually convert your API calls, see this documentation!

SkyWin® One is installed in parallell with the legacy client SkyWin (Windows) and can complement with features as API, web-client for jump queue and more.
Before installation you can submit a copy of your existing database, and we will validate that it will work smoothly with SkyWin® One.
