Kisco Information Systems today announced the immediate availability of Release 10 of its popular WebReport/400 package.

With this release, WebReport/400 can be used to send System i spool files by fax using the Internet fax service, MetroFax. This inexpensive fax service provides easy delivery of email messages by fax. Most companies will find this is cheaper than the cost of a fax phone line, the company says. No special hardware or software is needed on your i. WebReport/400 has been upgraded to format email messages from standard report spool files to work easily with the MetroFax service.

WebReport/400 includes the ability to convert spool files into Microsoft Excel format (XLS), along with other popular output formats available in earlier releases--PDF, HTML, TXT, RTF and CSV. MS Excel conversion accuracy has been greatly improved through the implementation of report models within WebReport/400 so that specific columnar data can always be captured correctly.

The new release also includes these new features:

•        Improved activity logging with an activity database for more comprehensive reporting

•        Improved application security with the differentiation of software users and software administrators

•        New optional support for sending processing to run in batch

•        Support improvements for color advanced function printing (AFP) overlays

•        Improved report splitting for PDF conversions that use AFP overlays

WebReport/400 is an e-business utility that will convert System i reports to PDF, Excel or formatted text and distribute them in email or as internet/intranet content. The application offers flexible configuration and ease of use, as well as the ability to embed report distribution functionality into your existing applications. Reports can be processed manually, set up to be handled automatically using monitored output queues, or imbedded directly into applications using our standard OS command formats.

Kisco Information Systems was formed in 1984 to provide high quality data processing services to businesses in the New York Metropolitan area. The goal was, and continues to be, to provide clients with high quality professional services at a reasonable cost. Our concentration specialty it the IBM i series of systems including Power Server running IBM i, i5, iSeries and AS/400.

Since formation, Kisco has expanded its client list on a steady basis. We have tried successfully to take on clients where we can make a significant business contribution. Our approach is to view data processing as a business resource used to solve business problems in a cost effective way.

Kisco Information Systems significantly expanded its own business horizons starting in 1986. We then started publishing software for the IBM i family and System/36 with several award winning products in national and international distribution. Our list of software customers is constantly expanding. It includes Jefferson Smurfit Corporation, the US Department of Agriculture, Amway, Heald College, Airborne Express, Cargill International, Wyeth-Ayerst Canada and more. We have more than 6000 software installations in the US and more than 40 foreign countries.

In March 2002, Kisco Information Systems moved to new administrative offices deep in the heart of the Adirondack Mountains in Saranac Lake, New York. While we continue to support our consulting clients in the downstate area with on site resources, this move has allowed us to increase our level of support for our software customers.
