Seapine Software Ships TestTrack Pro 5.0 -- Improved Reporting and Automated Defect Routing Headline New Release

Mason, Ohio -- November 20, 2002 -- Seapine Software, Inc., a leading provider of software development lifecycle management solutions, today announced the availability of TestTrack Pro 5.0. A powerful defect management solution that is part of Seapine's software development lifecycle suite, version 5.0 expands TestTrack Pro with a newly designed XSL-based reporting engine, graphical reports, automatic defect routing, additional help desk features, as well as administrative and usability enhancements."Faster delivery of quality software requires tools that simplify management of the testing process. TestTrack Pro has been widely adopted because it cost effectively fulfills this requirement," said Richard Riccetti, President of Seapine Software. "Version 5.0's new features make it even easier for the manager or team leader to make better decisions about the quality of their software and when to ship their products."A major new feature of TestTrack Pro 5.0 is its XSL-based reporting engine. The new reporting engine adds the ability to produce charts and graphs of trend and distribution data and includes customizable report layouts (including adding company logos), multiple shared report templates, more data and sorting options, and additional export options. The graphing feature of TestTrack Pro 5.0 gives the user greater control over the presentation of their reports than in prior versions of TestTrack Pro, resulting in the production of more professional reports.Moving defects quickly through a process of discovery to resolution is critical to delivering software on time. TestTrack Pro 5.0's new automatic defect routing lets the user define defect routing rules based on changes to a defect's status and other criteria. The result is improved workflow through faster routing of defects and fewer routing mistakes.Additional TestTrack Pro 5.0 enhancements include new custom fields, quick links in the Web client list windows, administrative control over user display settings, a calendar control in the Web client, file attachment import via XML, and enhanced integration with Surround SCM.
