Rafiki’s Corner: Spring is here and Exact Event Manager 1.5 is in Controlled Release!

Written by Sander van Triet on . Posted in Exact Event Manager

And it all comes together! Today is March 1, 2010 and in the Great White North, Canada, that means Spring Day. I can think of no better way than to celebrate the movement into Spring, a time of new things to come, with the release of Exact Event Manager 1.5 into Controlled Release (CR). This is the phase of the release cycle where our customers get to sample the efforts of a dedicated team, and put our solutions to work, making their lives easier.

This launch into Controlled Release is the culmination of many, many man days testing, fixing, adjusting and releasing code to be re-tested. Weekly releases, and on occasion, multiple releases a week, spread over a period of 2 months, have resulted in what will is looking to be a release to be proud of. I do know that there is much excitement around this release and all the possibilities it brings our customer base.

Exact Event Manager is one of those solutions that assists in immediately unlocking hidden value within any organization, no matter the industry or market.

    I like the embedded Rich Text editor which allows me to quickly insert tables, adjust table properities, and use spell check.

    Hi Matthew

    All sounds good, is this product an Exact product or still under license from Vineyardsoft??

    Also does EEM still work on a schedule rather than triggers? Obviously trigger based queries offer less overhead on servers…

    And finally HTML emails? is this possible using standard core functionality?

    Exact Event Manager 1.5 is a solution designed and developed entirely by Exact.

    Yes, the solution makes use of the table scan method of event management, with schedules defining when the scans should run. The need to have a trigger based solution is clearly understood and is part of the product roadmap.

    The new rich text editor for emails negates the need to write HTML code. This is a utility that provides for the ability to properly format and design professional emails, embed images and links. Yu have the option to send the email in HTML format as well.
