Latest Releases of EMS Room and Resource Scheduling Software Earn "Certified for Windows Vista" Logo


Lotus Domino integration among other product enhancements

DENVER - Dean Evans & Associates (www.dea.com) today announced the release of new versions of their Event Management System (EMS) room and resource scheduling products, which are used by corporations, higher education campuses, hospitals, churches, school districts and other organizations to book rooms, resources and services for meetings and events. EMS software is also used to perform academic course scheduling and shared workspace management (sometimes referred to as hoteling).

A number of technical enhancements have been made to EMS Campus (Version 1.1), EMS Enterprise (Version 4.1), EMS Professional (Version 10.1) and EMS Lite (Version 6.1), including that they are now:

· Certified for Windows Vista
· Compatible with Windows Office 2007
· Built on the Microsoft .NET Framework 2.0
· Compatible with IBM Lotus Notes email (basic email compatibility for all products, as well as Lotus Domino integration for EMS Enterprise)

The Windows Vista certification process was especially challenging. We're very happy with the results of the testing, says Sean Nelson, lead developer on the company's scheduling products. The whole testing procedure was very eye-opening for us. This was no rubber stamp process. We had to work through dozens of complex test cases to ensure that the software met Microsoft's strict standards.

As of a recent counting, the EMS offerings were four of just 206 products that are officially certified for the Windows Vista operating system.

Microsoft is pleased that Dean Evans & Associates has earned the Certified for Windows Vista software logo for their EMS applications, says Brad Goldberg, General Manager for Windows Vista Product Management at Microsoft Corp. By certifying their applications, DEA is letting their customers know that their products have met explicit standards of reliability and quality, and have been tested and proven to deliver a superior experience with a PC running Windows Vista.
