ADU, INC. announces ADUCS to run on Windows(1) based servers.

Dateline Hanover, MA January 2003:

Alpha Data Utility, Inc. a closely held Massachusetts corporation has announced a port of their flagship software product "The ADU Credit System (ADUCS)" to run on Windows(1) based servers. This exciting announcement paves the way for smaller credit providers to take advantage of the full benefits of the ADUCS. This product also provides a path for larger sites to provide backup support to their customers in the event of a downtime event with their primary computer system at a relatively small expense. This port provides all of the functionality of the full system and is based on the same code base as the mainframe versions of the product. CICS(2) API services are provided by "CICS Transaction Server for Windows Version 5(2)." Sizing of the Windows(1) server will be based on data volume and concurrent user load. Additional considerations should be made when the server is the primary provider of credit services as opposed to a downtime backup provider. ADU will make this version available as an object code only distribution, but will provide the option of a turnkey installation or full custom installation. Price will vary accordingly. Certain restrictions may apply to various configurations and inquiries should be forwarded to ADU. See the product information pages on the web pages for descriptions of the functionality.
