"ResourceMate has always been a versatile program but with the new version, the ability to tailor the program to meet the needs of organizations has been made easier," says Brian Watson, President of Jaywil Software. "The new version allows users to catalog in any language and also generate reports more easily compared to the old version. A 3.0 user even went so far as to say that adding more information to a listing was 1,000 times easier than before. That's great for customers because each one has unique needs and information they want to have access to, quickly. With our new Family of Products, they can set up their program so they see what is important to them."

The new Family of Products has a number of new features:

  • It is built on MS SQL server which makes the program much faster and reliable, yet easily run on a stand alone computer
  • The ability to process a list of ISBN's (not available for Lite or Essential) makes the cataloging process much quicker
  • Being Unicode based makes it available to those organizations that want to catalog items using different languages ie. Chinese, Hebrew or Russian.
