Rochester, NY (PRWEB) April 11, 2006 –-
Pharos Systems International, the leading provider of Enterprise Print Asset Management software solutions, announces the release of Blueprint Enterprise 3.2, the latest version of their industry-leading Blueprint Enterprise product. Global 1000 customers have requested an enterprise solution that can successfully operate in all of their facilities from North America to Europe, Latin America, and Asia. As a result, Blueprint Enterprise 3.2 was thoroughly tested to operate natively within eight major international versions of the Windows operating system used in these regions. With its patent-pending page-counting technology that combines device meter read data with user print transaction data, Blueprint Enterprise tracks every page printed by every user from every application and in every major business region of the world in order to calculate real costs of printing based on actual usage.
As a result, organizations achieve a true cost-per-page accounting of all users and output devices across the enterprise. Pharos Blueprint Enterprise illuminates your printing environment so that companies will finally have the facts they need to make sound business decisions about IT investments. Once you can accurately measure total enterprise output costs, you can manage and significantly reduce those costs by 30% or more, while at the same time reducing paper usage and helping the environment.
Pharos Systems has relationships with multinational customers in the United States and throughout the world, including Latin America, Europe, and Asia, and tested the latest version of Blueprint Enterprise on multiple language versions of the Windows operating system to meet the needs of these Global 1000 companies.
Included in the new release of Blueprint Enterprise are several features designed to enhance the internationalization and security of the software. Blueprint 3.2 includes support for several international operating systems, including those written in French, Spanish, Italian, Japanese, Chinese, German, and Brazilian Portuguese. In addition, to provide better support to international locales, IT staff can customize the software’s holidays and business hours to suit each individual country, which provides for more accurate data reporting.
To further enhance Blueprint Enterprise security, 3.2 supports the use of SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) to encrypt communication between the different components of the software solution.
Paul Reddy, Director of Research and Product Development for Pharos Systems, says, “As a global business with customers in 22 countries, it’s essential that our Enterprise Print Asset Management software runs on local platforms and operating systems and that it integrates with individual countries’ calendars and monetary units. Our global customers have asked for these features and we’ve designed Blueprint Enterprise 3.2 with them in mind.”
