Seapine Software Powers Up TestTrack Pro 6.0 with Configurable Workflows and Simplified Licensing

Mason, Ohio -- August 27, 2003 -- Seapine Software, Inc., a leading supplier of integrated software that manages the software development lifecycle, today announced the immediate availability of TestTrack Pro 6.0. Version 6.0 of Seapine's award-winning issue management tool includes numerous new features such as fully customizable workflows, multiple user assignments, enhanced email notifications, increased custom field support, and an improved licensing model."This significant upgrade greatly expands TestTrack Pro's ability to manage many unique processes within a development organization," said Richard Riccetti, president of Seapine Software. "Our completely user-definable workflows provide absolute control over process management, yet maintains TestTrack Pro's signature ease of use that has made it such a popular development tool."TestTrack Pro 6.0's fully customizable workflows let users define states, events, and state transition rules, allowing users to model workflows after their company's issue management process. TestTrack Pro's workflow diagramming feature lets users graphically view workflows for debugging and communication purposes. Later this year, Seapine will offer pre-built workflows to address a variety of business problems and industry standards including change management, issue management, help desk processing, ISO 9000, CMM, CMM II, 21CFR11, and HIPAA.Complementing the new workflow feature is TestTrack Pro 6.0's multiple user assignment support and email notification improvements. The ability to assign an issue to multiple users increases TestTrack Pro's flexibility. The administrator can define rules that determine when an issue moves to a new state based on whether one or all of the assigned users complete the assignment. Adding to the increased flexibility is TestTrack Pro's enhanced email notifications. Users now have more control over who receives email notifications with the ability to apply rules to email notifications, create unique email templates for each rule, and configure both user-specific and system-wide notification options.Seapine has also simplified its licensing in version 6.0 of TestTrack Pro. Customers no longer have to select between Web- and Windows-based clients when purchasing licenses. TestTrack Pro 6.0 gives customers access to both types of clients from a single license."Simplified licensing will be well received by our customers, because it eliminates the need to select a client technology at the point of purchase," said Mr. Riccetti. "While our Windows client supports remote access over TCP/IP connections, sometimes quick access from a light-weight Web client is preferred or necessary. Likewise, our Web client customers will appreciate having access to the additional power-user features that can only be accommodated on a native Windows application."Seapine has also enhanced TestTrack Pro's features to address the widely varying needs of its users. TestTrack Pro 6.0 users can now define up to 100 custom fields for their issues. In addition, TestTrack Pro's enhanced SOAP (Simple Object Access Protocol) API supports full access to custom fields, enabling the user to solve more business problems using TestTrack Pro and SOAP-compliant development tools.Other TestTrack Pro 6.0 features include the ability to share user accounts across multiple TestTrack Pro databases, the ability to share user accounts with Seapine's Surround SCM source control tool, enhanced security with 512-bit encrypted client/server communication, additional password security options, and more.AvailabilityTestTrack Pro 6.0 is available immediately to customers worldwide through Seapine Partners, Authorized Resellers and Seapine Software.
