Blueridge Software™ Introduces Contract Assistant™ Enterprise Edition Version 6.1

LAGUNA NIGUEL, CA. September 4, 2012. Blueridge Software, Inc. today announced the introduction of Enterprise Edition Version 6.1, an exciting upgrade to the most powerful version of its Contract Assistant contract management software.

Contract Assistant Enterprise Edition is an affordable, flexible, off-the-shelf contract management solution that couples the intuitive user interface of Contract Assistant with the power and scalability of SQL. This version of Contract Assistant is intended to meet the needs of small workgroups to large organizations and can accommodate even very large databases and numbers of users.

Since its initial launch in January 2005, Contract Assistant Enterprise Edition has proven a hit with users. Among its most popular features are: automatic email notification of an unlimited number of date-driven alarms, multi-level security, easy customization by an administrative user, and the ability to store related documents in the database. Contract Assistant Enterprise Edition Version 6.1 builds upon the success of earlier versions with new features and enhancements.

New Enterprise Edition Version 6.1 Features
Enterprise Edition 6.1 includes Field Level Locking, which greatly expands the customizability of the software. The administrative user can easily use this to create views that simplify users’ screens or control access to fields and features. A view can be applied for all users or selected users, and the program supports multiple views.

Enterprise Edition’s user interface has been updated with a new color palette, easy-to-understand icons, and a navigation ribbon. Illustrated documentation can be easily accessed on-screen.

Improvements to Enterprise Edition’s Report Designer include a new look, more intuitive settings and editing, additional pre-built reporting sources, and an expanded set of starter reports.

Behind the scenes changes include virtualization of the software. This isolates the 6.1 application modules in their own environment to prevent potential conflicts with other existing applications and to eliminate the need to install or register dlls.

Updated User Interface
Enterprise Edition’s user interface has been updated with a new color palette, easy-to-understand icons, and a navigation ribbon. Illustrated documentation can be easily accessed on-screen.

Easy Upgrade
A built-in conversion utility allows current Contract Assistant Enterprise Edition Version customers to migrate all their data and existing customization to Version 6.1. Users of single-user Contract Assistant Standard Edition or multi-user PRO Edition can take advantage of a simple upgrade path, with quick, automated import of their existing Contract Assistant databases.

The Power of SQL – The Ease of Contract Assistant
Contract Assistant Enterprise Edition databases are installed on servers running Microsoft SQL 2005, 2008, 2008 R2, or 2012. User modules are installed on local PCs running Windows XP, Windows 7, or Windows 8 or on virtual desktop software, such as Citrix, Terminal Services, and Citrix XenApp.

After installation, the primary user of a Contract Assistant Enterprise Edition database can use the program’s built-in tools to carry out the day-to-day administration of the database without IT help. Comprehensive, illustrated documentation is written for the average user. Key contract information is easily entered, viewed, and searched, and can be shared via unlimited custom reports.
