Gylling Data Management, Inc.

Providing Research Software Solutions Since 1982!

Welcome! to Gylling Data Management, Inc. We provide ARM software for managing and summarizing research experiments. ARM is a recognized and respected standard throughout the crop production and protection industry, used by thousands of researchers worldwide (more than any other integrated research trial management software).

Microsoft Windows XP 'End of Extended Support' is April 8, 2014. This means that beginning April 8, 2014 GDM will stop support for Windows XP computers. The word 'Support' includes:

- Questions or problems with GDM programs on a XP computer.

- Attempting to send or receive any files (ARM, MS Office, PDF, etc) on a Windows XP computer.

- Installing GDM software on a XP computer.

- Installing any software updates on a XP computer.

Windows XP is more than 12 years old, so it cannot adequately support or protect modern computer hardware and software. GDM software uses Microsoft tools, and Microsoft only supports these tools when running on supported operating systems.

ARM Tablet Data Collector is Available, a Package Consisting of:

- Lenovo ThinkPad Tablet 2 or the rugged Panasonic Toughpad FZ-G1, both with Windows 8 Professional.

- ARM 9.1.5+ software with your ARM 9 license installed on tablet.

- SD backup card and USB transfer cable.

- Activation key to enable unique features available only in Tablet Data Collector (pdf).

- Please contact or your GDM Representative to order ARM Tablet Data Collector. See Tablet Data Collector FAQ and ARM Tablet Data Collector for answers to typical questions about Tablet Data Collector.

New Electronic Downloads to Install ARM 9, ST 8, and Sponsor Customizations:

Throw away those old program install CDs! The newly released ARM Check for Updates tool will now automatically download and install the newest version of ARM 9 and ST 8 software that you have licensed from GDM.

- On a new PC, add GDM software by select this link to install and start Check for Updates (choose 'Run' if asked whether to Run or Save).

- Enter your ARM user name and password on the Login dialog.

- Select "Install Updates" to start installing the licensed GDM software available to you.

- If you are a contractor or cooperator, the Check for Updates will also install sponsor customizations you have been approved to receive BASF, Syngenta, or Valent/Sumitomo Chemical Company. See Contract Researchers page for more information.

- Windows 8: Select this Check for Updates link to begin installing ARM on either 64-bit or 32-bit Windows 8 versions. (ARM 8 installer technology is too old for Windows 8.)

- ARM data quality and usability features such as the one-click Box-Whisker graph, Assessment Map, AOV Means Table Report, automatic data corrections, and Outlook-linked ARM tasks quickly pay for the upgrade cost.
