CrossTec Releases EMS v3.0: Enhanced Version of Asset Management Software Helps IT Admins Reduce Waste With Expanded Monitoring And Reporting Capabilities

Boca Raton, Florida, September 9, 2009 -- CrossTec Corporation, a
leading developer and provider of software management solutions,
announces the release of EMS v3.0 asset management software, offering
IT admins enhanced monitoring and reporting capabilities to reduce
waste and redundancy across the enterprise. EMS v3.0 includes new and
enhanced features unique to IT asset management, including the ability
to combine hardware and software inventory monitoring with software
distribution, application and Internet metering, alerting and reporting
capabilities, and remote control functionality. EMS v3.0 provides a
centralized solution to current IT asset management needs while
preparing for increased regulatory compliance requirements resulting
from business growth.

"The ability to efficiently manage IT assets across the enterprise has
a direct correlation to an organization's overall operational
efficiently--not to mention its bottom line," says Turner Dean, VP
Sales of CrossTec Corporation. "The new version of EMS provides
administrators with unmatched transparency into the organization's IT
assets: the number and location of its desktops, what hardware is
needed, and what software is installed. No single person can manage and
support these assets efficiently; trying to track and manage assets
with spreadsheets is an inefficient use of IT personnel. EMS is an
easily deployed, cost-effective solution that simplifies and
centralizes asset management. Key new features such as remote office
management and energy monitoring make it even more adaptable to the
most complex environments. Plus, its modular framework enables
administrators to purchase only those components they need."

CrossTec EMS v3.0 includes the following new features:

* Remote Office Management is provided via the new Communication
Gateway. This stable gateway locates and securely connects to clients
on remote networks via the Internet. Administrators can monitor and
manage on multiple remote locations from a central location.
* The Energy Monitor--which is aimed at helping organizations reduce
their carbon footprint, meet internal energy saving targets, and reduce
operational costs--tracks all powered-on systems across the enterprise,
highlighting their energy consumption and associated costs. Working day
hours can be defined making it easy to identify out-of-hours wastage.

* Active Directory Integration. Full Active Directory Integration is
provided in EMS v3.0 and the tree view can now mirror your Active
Directory structure. Support has been provided to enable membership of
AD groups to control logon/access rights to the EMS Console.
