FRP®.OPTI - 20.1

Reading time: min

RGU GmbH is pleased to announce its latest innovation inside its FRP®.OPTI system. Most new features and solutions will be rolled out to European clients first before some or the other solution will transfer to its standardized FRP®.kompakt and FRP®.base system solution. The FRP®.melt software platform – as long as it is integrated into the FRP® suite will benefit in the same way from these innovations!  Here are the highlights of the Rel. 20.1 which was introduced during Q4/2021 and transported to most clients in Q1/2022. First and foremost the performance and scalability of the software itself was improved, followed by key-innovations as described below!


Release 20.1 is available in both x86 (32-bit) and x64 (64-bit). However, the complete conversion to 64-bit has once again improved system performance. Especially for computationally intensive tasks, the more efficient use of RAM in the x64 version of FRP®.OPTI provides a further performance boost.

FRP® - Task-Collector

With FRP® Task Collector, you can focus on your tasks and have an easy and quick access to the programs which are essential for your individual job.

FRP® - QUICK-Attach

Do you want to quickly add a text, e-mail, PDF or image file to a task? No problem. FRP® Quick-Attach provides you with a powerful clipboard.


No more language barriers! With the FRP®  Additional-Translation-Pack field texts, message-, input-boxes etc. can be translated into the language of the logged in user at runtime. FRP®.OPTI just as you know it: Innovative, Informative, Comprehensive.

FRP® - Input-sequence-controller

Maintain an overview even in complex data-input scenarios and guide users precisely through the data-input sequence required in each case. This means that false or incorrect data entries are now a matter of the past.


No more “yellow stickers” near the monitor - FRP® - Notes is the smart alternative to your paper clutter.

FRP® - Thumbnail-Performer

Thumbnail handling has been significantly improved in Release 20.1. Now thumbnails can be opened using an RGU call and displayed e.g. in RGU tooltips.
