Seapine Software Gets jProg Developers Back Online Following Hurricane Katrina

Mason, Ohio—October 28, 2005—Seapine Software, Inc., a leading provider of adaptable application lifecycle management (AALM) solutions, recently delivered its comprehensive issue management and version control solutions to jProg, a New Orleans-based developer of computer applications for the public health industry. Seapine’s TestTrack Pro and Surround SCM helped jProg restore their development operations following the devastating effects of Hurricane Katrina.“Hurricane Katrina not only wiped out our corporate headquarters, but it also scattered our development team,” said Jeff Murray, president and chief programmer at jProg. “To make matters worse, our existing version control software did not support versioning over the Internet. Our future depended upon deploying a new version control system. That’s when we found Surround SCM.”jProg develops applications that allow health care administrators to manage user-level data access, provider data sharing, quality assurance, service contracts, and more. Surround SCM, Seapine’s scalable, cross-platform source code management solution helped jProg facilitate remote development by providing a central repository for source files. “We were able to restore pre-Katrina backups into Surround SCM and piece together our current project relatively easily,” said Murray. jProg believes that check in and check out is actually faster over the Internet than their previous on-site, source control solution. The company also anticipates greater development efficiency through Surround SCM’s more powerful branching.Shortly after implementing Surround SCM to manage their source code, jProg selected TestTrack Pro, Seapine’s cross-platform issue management solution, to manage their bugs and keep the team informed and on schedule. jProg reports that TestTrack Pro has given them improved routing and easier access to the bug database than their former bulletin board-based system.jProg has realized numerous benefits from choosing Seapine’s solutions. “Looking back, Surround SCM and TestTrack Pro would have made sense for us when we were in a single location. Hurricane Katrina pushed us into the enterprise world, and Seapine had the best features for the price,” added Murray.About jProgjProg specializes in developing computer applications for the public health industry. jProg’s flagship application, RW CAREWare, is used by hundreds of HIV/AIDS service providers in the U.S., and an international version is used in Africa.
