Abstract The ISOLDE facility at CERN requires a wide variety of software applications to ensure maximum productivity. It will be further enforced by two new and innovative applications; Automatic Save After set uP (ASAP) and Fast Beam Investigation (FBI). ASAP saves crucial time for the engineers in charge (EIC) during the physics campaign. It automatizes and standardizes a repetitive process. In addition, for each new set up, the EIC is required to document the settings of all important elements before delivering beam to the users. FBI will be serving two different needs. First, it will be used as a beam traceability tool. The settings of every element of ISOLDE that could obstruct, stop or affect the beam will be tracked by the application. This will allow to understand better the presence of radioactive contaminants after each experiment at every possible point in the facility. The second functionality will allow real time monitoring of the machine status during a physics run. FBI will be the most efficient way to visualize the status of the machine and find the reason that prevents the beam from arriving to the experimental station.
