AVTECH Software Inc. (AVTECH) recognizes that after retiring PageR Enterprise (PageR) on May 1st, 2010, there has been a very strong response from customers requesting the continuation of support and development of PageR. Since 1988, AVTECH has built strong customer relationships based upon quality products like PageR, a strong commitment to service and by providing products of high value. When AVTECH decided to retire PageR to focus on IT and facilities environment monitoring products, we knew users would desire another option.

AVTECH is pleased to announce that effective immediately, we have transferred all rights and ownership of PageR Enterprise to CPL Systems Ltd. (CPL) of Sheffield, England. The team at CPL has worked with AVTECH for more than two decades now and they are the original source code developers of PageR. Working together, AVTECH and CPL have created a following that puts PageR among the most widely used products of its type. With this in mind, CPL’s understanding of PageR and how it works is in-depth, complete and unmatched.

The primary contact at CPL Systems for PageR Enterprise customer assistance is:

CPL is now the organization to whom all PageR customers and prospects will go to for new software keys, new versions and updates, technical support, maintenance support & update service (MSUS) renewals and reinstatements, new license quotes and all software purchases. CPL owns all rights to PageR Enterprise and the associated intellectual property. AVTECH will redirect all inquiries for and about PageR to CPL.

On behalf of the team at CPL, we’re pleased and excited to take the front line for PageR. It’s a great product for server, device and event monitoring and will continue being so for many years to come,” says Greg Bradshaw. “We’re here to ensure PageR’s reliability and viability by providing ongoing support, any needed fixes and new versions on a regular basis.” CPL welcomes all PageR customers to contact them at their convenience to ask about PageR development plans, obtain technical support, receive quotes for new licenses, obtain new software keys or to simply say hello and confirm their contact information.

We are pleased to know that PageR customers will be able to go to CPL for continued support, product updates and service,” says Michael Sigourney, Senior Product Specialist at AVTECH. “I’ve personally worked with Greg and CPL for over fifteen years and find their product knowledge to be unmatched.” AVTECH will continue to sell, service and support AVTECH’s Room Alert and TemPageR products for environment monitoring.

CPL is preparing the immediate release of PageR Enterprise v5.2.5, a major new version that will include two new Monitored Objects (MOs) and a significant number of powerful enhancements, fixes and improvements. This new version will be available within days via download from CPL’s website.

New monitored objects include the MBSA MO to scan target Windows systems using the Microsoft Baseline Security Analyzer and generate alarms if security issues are found and the Windows Update MO to check a target system for updates that are available although have not yet been applied. An alarm is generated if updates are missing on that system. Detailed reports for both MOs are available in the Web Status screen. Both new MOs are extremely valuable as busy managers seldom find time to manually check systems for updates or security issues.

PageR users know that they can monitor Windows XP, Windows Vista, Windows 2003, Windows 2008 and Windows 7. Monitored object types can be chosen to monitor Windows services, disk space, disk drives, Windows event logs, Windows folders, web pages, disk files, Windows processes, WMI, SNMP and email. PageR can monitor Windows applications including Microsoft Exchange, IIS, SQL and Domino Server (Lotus Notes). Literally hundreds of applications can be monitored for all kinds of problems. PageR will monitor unlimited types of hardware, network devices, environmental monitoring products and more. It includes network monitoring features to monitor Windows networks, for example IP ping, bandwidth, TCP Services, UDP Services, DNS check and NetWare servers. PageR also monitors UNIX using UNIX login scripts and SYSLOG monitoring. It can also monitor legacy servers such as HP3000, OpenVMS and AS/400. PageR is very easy to install and uses very few resources to run on a minimum spec PC. Users can be monitoring Windows in just a few minutes with CPL’s easy setup procedure and Quick Start guide.
