In its press release, the company said the new system is accessible by the Internet or intranet. It is built on a J2EE platform, enables hosting on UNIX and Windows, and supports Internet Explorer and Firefox browsers.
On the new profile-based system, administrators will be able to set up profiles for different user groups and assign users to the appropriate groups. The company also said in the news release that non-technical personnel can customize screens on the new system. Personalized reports and spreadsheets can be generated and exported directly into an Adobe Acrobat PDF document or Excel spreadsheet.
