Enterprise Edition Introduced

LAGUNA NIGUEL, CA. January 3, 2005 — Blueridge Software, Inc. today announced the introduction of Enterprise Edition, a significantly expanded version of its Contract Assistant contract management software. The new Contract Assistant Enterprise Edition couples the intuitive user interface of Contract Assistant with the power and scalability of SQL.

The Power of SQL – The Ease of Contract Assistant
Contract Assistant Enterprise Edition is an affordable, flexible, off-the-shelf contract management solution, designed to meet the needs of small workgroups to sizable organizations. Enterprise Edition offers easy installation and setup, with features and scalability, to accommodate even very large databases and numbers of users.

Enterprise Edition provides multi-level database security that can be used to restrict access down to the individual contract record level, email notification to alert responsible parties of date-driven alarms, a custom report writer, a number of user-nameable fields, and extensive search capabilities.

Contract Assistant Enterprise Edition databases are installed on servers running Microsoft SQL Server 2000. User modules are installed on local PCs running Windows 2000 or XP and can also be run on virtual desktop software for remote access.

After installation, the primary user of an Enterprise Edition database can use the 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.

Easy Upgrade from Other Versions of Contract Assistant
Current users of Contract Assistant Standard Edition of PRO Edition will find it easy to migrate to the new Enterprise Edition. Customers can take advantage of an upgrade path, with quick, automated import of their existing Contract Assistant databases.
