Enterprise Edition v5.3 Released


LAGUNA NIGUEL, CA. August 31, 2007. — Blueridge Software, Inc. today announced the introduction of Enterprise Edition Version 5.3, a significant upgrade to its Contract Assistant Enterprise Edition 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 introduction 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, one-click copying of contract records, and full-text searching. Contract Assistant Enterprise Edition Version 5.3 builds upon the success of earlier versions of this product with new features, many of which have been added in response to customer requests.

New Enterprise Edition Version 5.3 Features

  • A new data cabinet allows users to store files and documents securely in the database and auto-archive iterations.
  • Users can now set date-driven alarms to recur automatically on a pre-determined basis.
  • The new version includes 10 additional user-nameable fields, five of which are drop-downs, and five of which are date fields.
  • Users can now send email notifications to distribution lists.
  • A word-processor-like text editor provides expanded control and formatting of large text fields.

Other enhancements include a basic audit trail, additional security for linked and stored files and more than 40 pre-built reports, a number of which are structured to run against saved searches.

Easy Upgrade
Current Contract Assistant Enterprise Edition Version 5.1 or 5.2 customers can migrate easily to Version 5.3 by using the built-in conversion utility. Users of single-user Contract Assistant Standard Edition or multi-user PRO Edition can take advantage of an 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 2000 or 2005. User modules are installed on local PCs running Windows 2000, XP, or Vista and can also be run on virtual desktop software for remote access.

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.
