new product paves the way for investigating the potential operation of its
FileWave=AE software with many other operating systems. The latest version=

MacOS X Cocoa application, and running as a UNIX daemon process.

Dramatically improved centralized automated management of software, and
full compliance with the MacOS 9 Multiple Users technology – these are some
of the key characteristics of the new FileWave=AE 4.5.1. A host of innovativ=
features include support of URL’s for downloading, a new “downloaded” state
to aid in reporting the state of delivered files on the client’s Macintosh,
and easier management of Quark XPressTM XTensions. Administration has also
been improved, giving hierarchical views of files to be delivered. In
addition, a Recursive Folder Delete feature in the Blacklist Editor
optimizes removal of unwanted folders. These enhancements and added
features, part of FileWave’s ongoing commitment to development, give users
unparalleled scalability and control.

Asset TrusteeTM 6.5 – Asset-tracking made faster and easier

In its latest version, FileWave’s cross-platform automated asset tracking
solution, Asset Trustee=81, features improved layout and design. It makes it
easier than ever before for users to navigate and search for information.
The highly reliable asset management solution is now even faster in
importing scanned information into the Asset Trustee Inventory Database.
Asset Trustee=81 stores this information in a flat file format, allowing
easier reporting and simplifying crucial organizational decisions.

A further enhancement to Asset Trustee=81 6.5 is the Windows based Scanner
and Collector applications. These newly designed executables make the setup
of the Windows based software much simpler.

The Scanner on the Mac reports the serial numbers of the Macintosh, USB
Devices and FireWire Devices. These new features create an even more robust
reporting about installed Macintoshes.

Key benefits of this new version include the ability to set and enforce
software and hardware standards, determination of compliance with software
licensing laws, and features to aid help desk operations. Taken together,
these benefits confirm Asset Trustee=81 6.5 as the foremost cross-platform
asset management solution available today.
