Stay-Linked Version 8 Released

Enterprise Pooled License Server Option and Support for Double-Byte Asian Character Sets Highlight Latest Additions

TUSTIN, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- March 13, 2007 -- Stay-Linked Corporation today announced the release of Stay-Linked Version 8.

The new Pool License Server option enables enterprises to take full advantage of the simplified management and cost-saving benefits that Stay-Linked's host-based, thin-client licensing model offers. Unlike typical device-side terminal emulation products where licensing is applied on each of the users' devices, Stay-Linked licensing is controlled on the host system where the terminal users connect and is based on a more cost-effective concurrent-user model.

The Pool License Server is ideally suited for enterprises that deploy mission-critical applications in a distributed fashion. The retail industry is a perfect example of this, where there is often a need to support terminal users performing real-time data collection in multiple remote distribution centers and in tens, hundreds, or even thousands, of store locations.

"Stay-Linked customers already include several of the largest retailers in the US and Canada that utilize the model of remote distribution center and store workers connecting to a centrally deployed application host," said Mike Pagani, Stay-Linked Corporation's vice president of sales and marketing. "The new Pool License Server option takes a single Stay-Linked concurrent-user license and automatically distributes user seats to the various remote application hosts dynamically based on demand. Now, enterprises with a distributed processing model can enjoy the same benefits offered by Stay-Linked's thin-client design and cost-effective usage-based licensing."

Version 8 also adds support for double-byte Asian character sets on terminal devices using Stay-Linked thin-client terminal emulation software to connect to the host system and manage the user's session.

"A significant number of domestic enterprises have the need to also support operations in Asia with core host applications, and specifically users performing real-time data capture," said David Griffith, Stay-Linked Corporation's CEO. "Having support for double-byte Asian characters adds value by allowing them to standardize on Stay-Linked as their global solution for high-speed, reliable, secure, and centrally managed host access for all of their users, regardless of the native language of the data being displayed on their screens."

Support for SSL-based Telnet connections, additional host API functions, enhanced barcode editing configuration, expanded Administrator GUI console capabilities, and support for SCO UnixWare and Mac OS X server platforms are additional noteworthy Stay-Linked Version 8 deliverables.

The industry leader in host-based, thin-client wireless terminal emulation, Stay-Linked provides centralized, secure, high-performance wireless access to 5250/3270, VT100/220 and SSHv2 host-based screen applications, with support for a wide range of wireless terminal devices that includes Symbol/Motorola, Intermec, AML, PSC, HHP, LXE, and Psion-Teklogix. Version 8 is currently available as a free downloadable upgrade for all Stay-Linked 7.2 users under support and maintenance, as well as from authorized Stay-Linked Certified Partner resellers. For new customers, Stay-Linked Version 8 installs quickly and easily and is available for evaluation as a fully functional, no-charge, 30-day trial from authorized Stay-Linked Certified Partner resellers.
