Record measurements easily, document them more clearly, process data faster and, in doing so, save time, money and reduce stress – this is why Bosch has developed a new measuring app based on its users’ needs. The new app will support all connected laser measures in the Bosch product range, including measuring tools for professionals and for do-it-yourselfers. Measured values can simply be transferred via Bluetooth. The intuitive app concept provides planners, tradespeople and DIY enthusiasts a more efficient workflow for visualizing rooms and measurement data. Whereas previous measuring apps ‒ including the Measuring Master App ‒ documented and processed data in individual steps using a traditional folder structure, the new Measuring App combines everything on a single screen – the digital worksheet: Thanks to a clearly organized menu, floor plans, sketches, measured values, images, notes and comments can all be intuitively added as easy as on an actual sheet of paper. Planners, tradespeople and do-it-yourselfers can expand the digital worksheet as they wish and now individually arrange all measurement information as required in order to carry out their tasks. Nothing will be forgotten ‒ all information is digitally bundled in a single app, with no need to collect data from different sources such as notes and camera. This results in less time recording measurement, a better overview and maximum flexibility.

Optimized workflows up to sharing information

No matter if offers, invoices or material calculations need to be compiled, or if rooms or projects need to be visualized and measured, the new measuring app puts the user’s need for simplified workflows at its core. For instance, measurements can be added to pictures taken with the camera and floor plans drawn up quickly and intuitively – simply using your finger instead of a pen.

Thanks to digitalization, manual transfer errors, “mixed-up digits” and illegible handwritten notes become a thing of the past. Through the app, users have a structured overview of their projects and can quickly share data with others via e-mail or messaging services ‒ no matter if the recipients are family, friends, colleagues, superiors or site managers.

The new Measuring App will be available for download from the Apple App Store and Google Play Store at the end of the year. It is compatible with all connected laser measures from Bosch: PLR 30 C, PLR 40 C and PLR 50 C, as well as the GLM 50 C Professional, GLM 100 C Professional and GLM 120 C Professional. In order to optimize workflows relating to measurements even further, the new measuring app will be continually improved through collaboration with the user. The functions that will be added to the app during the following year include elements such as digital checklists, as well as the possibility of adding measurements to hand-drawn sketches.
