MINNEAPOLIS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Oct. 8, 2002--Lanovation®, maker of best-of-breed software deployment solutions, today announced the immediate availability of project licensing for its Prism Deploy® software deployment tool.

Prism Deploy automates the installation and updating of software on every local, mobile and remote PC or laptop across an entire organization. Famous for its ease-of-use and flexibility, Prism Deploy enables system integrators, consultants and network administrators to complete wide-scale software rollouts in a short amount of time. Unlike other software deployment solutions, Prism Deploy is easy to learn, easy to use, extremely reliable, and delivers a significant reduction in total product cost.

System integrators, consultants and network administrators tasked with completing a project on a tight schedule, such as deploying Windows 2000 or Office XP throughout an organization, require tools that allow them to finish a job quickly, quietly, and with little impact to existing corporate infrastructures. Only Prism Deploy provides for integration and use in less than an hour with minimal training and a flexible architecture to work in any environment. With Prism Deploy, system integrators can walk into an organization and get a project done in a timely fashion with unparalleled success. With a Prism Deploy project-based licensing agreement, systems integrators can reduce cost and become more competitive.

British Columbia Buildings Corporation, the largest owned, leased and maintained properties provider in the province of British Columbia, initially purchased Prism Deploy under a project-based licensing agreement. “As part of our migration to Windows 2000, we needed a way to deploy applications that were not on our base image,” said Kruno Pavlicic, systems project manager for BC Buildings. “With over 200 PCs to manage, we required a tool that could perform this task in the most cost effective and efficient manner possible. Because we were able to purchase Prism Deploy with a project-based license, the purchase fit well within our project budget,” he continued.

BC Buildings has since purchased full licensing for Prism Deploy. According to Mr. Pavlicic, “At project completion, we were pleased with the results and saw the value of this software packaging and deployment tool. Because the infrastructure and packages created during the project can be retained, the decision was made to purchase this tool for use on a permanent basis,” he said.

According to Lanovation vice president of product management, Paul Newell, “Management suite-type products require large investments in time, travel and money; system integrators typically do not have this luxury.” Continues Newell, “Our new project licensing provides best-of-breed software deployment tools that are easily implemented in any Windows environment, minimizing schedule and financial risk.”
