GRASS VALLEY, California—Bytware, Inc. (www.bytware.com) adds a graphical client interface to (MessengerPlus) to give end users a single communications tool for sending messages to pagers, e-mail and other workstations from WIN95/98/NT.Bytware’s MessengerPlus, is a fully integrated iSeries 400 and AS/400 messages monitoring, management and notification solution designed to automatically detect software/hardware events requiring immediate attention. The product has always offered a user paging/dispatching feature, but the addition of this graphical interface brings “easy-to-use messaging to the fingertips of all users, especially those not use 5250 emulation,” says Christine Grant, Marketing Director for Bytware, Inc. During the client installation, administrators can specify security settings so users do not have to sign on to the AS/400 to send messages.
With MessengerPlus, users can send messages to all pager types, including 2-way pagers which enable the recipient to reply back from the pager, as well as e-mail, PCS Digital cellular phones, and workstations. The graphical client interface is very easy to use. Users can select pagers or e-mail addresses by clicking on the pager or e-mail names, typing their message and clicking Send. Messages are then submitted to MessengerPlus and sent via the iSeries 400 or AS/400, “centralizing communications and utilizing a stable platform for ensuring the messages are delivered,” she said. Audit and security features allow users to only check the status of their own messages.
MessengerPlus also introduces what Bytware calls “Event Management Central ” or the centralized configuration and monitoring of system events, messages and actions. Such centralization provides systems managers with greater control over message management and actions taken.
The graphical client interface is included with MessengerPlus at no extra charge and requires TCP/IP or Client Access connectivity. “This is the beginning of many clients to come. Future development plans include an Event Management Central graphical interface, ” she says.
Bytware, Inc.’s MessengerPlus is widely used in industries such as finance/banking, EMS/911, hospitality/gaming, medical/healthcare, transportation/trucking, manufacturing/retail, and telecommunications. The company’s focus on experience, excellence and quality assurance are its hallmarks and are echoed throughout its products and customer loyalty.
