G'Day All,

Has anyone worked with Trim the EDRMS software from Tower Software:Trim Context 6 Enterprise Management

Just trying to get a heads up before it's dumped on me next week. A tight timeline has been thrown around and I haven't heard from the vendors with my questions. I reckon after the sales pitch, reality will prevail, and I'm waiting for the clincher [8D].

I believe it's an msi already and a transform will tweak it nicely, I'm just wondering how it plugs into good 'ol Office 2003? Are there add on plugins like Hummingbird?

Any information would be greatly appreciated.

Hey Wayne,

I work for TOWER Software, as a technical consultant in North America.

Haha - yeah, our sales guys sure do do a nice job of making it all sound rosy and super awesome!

That said, TRIM Context is really pretty easy to install - the whole thing comes in a single MSI, and the integration with office 2003 is done via ODMA, so there aren't any separate plugins that need to be deployed - once you deploy the client, it should just automatically integrate with office.

I've seen a few weird problems crop up from time to time, most of them involve deploying on a network that also includes Novell GroupWise, or deploying through Novell Netware. TRIM uses DCOM to communicate between the servers and clients, so you might need to make sure that launch and security permissions are set correctly , too.

Oh, and deploying TRIM via Citrix also can be trouble...

If you have any problems, make sure you register over at the TOWER Software Forum. Our support guys are usually pretty quick to answer questions posted there.

Good luck,

Gordon : ^)

Hey Gordon,

Thanks for the reply. I'll have to be careful, next time I go looking for any feedback on a product. I certainly didn't expect a tech to reply[:D]; it cracked me up.

I'm glad you mentioned some glitches with something[;)],we're all MS shop here and we probably won't be going the citrix route at this time, but you never know the whims of government.

Onward to testing then, and thanks for the advice.
