Boundless Technologies Offers Low Cost Site Licensing for SAM Thin-Client Management Software Monday 5 March 2001 PDF Print New licensing structure enables users to take full advantage of the thin client's low total cost of ownership Boundless Technologies, Inc., a leading provider of thin clients and a wholly-owned subsidiary of Boundless Corporation, announced today that it has simplified the licensing procedure for its Simple Administrator & Manager (SAM) thin-client management software. Boundless customers will now be able to easily and inexpensively purchase a single site license for the SAM software. The new site licensing structure furthers the low total cost of ownership by eliminating the need for and costs associated with purchasing incremental add-on user licenses as new thin clients are added. "Boundless' unique SAM software maximises the benefits of the thin-client concept, allowing administrators to manage, configure and perform upgrades on our Capio & Capio II Windows-based Terminals (WBTs) from one central location, thus reducing time consuming visits to administer individual desktops," said Michael Oliva, Managing Director of Boundless Technologies, Inc. "Reducing the total cost of ownership is the theory behind server centric computing; by moving to a simple and inexpensive site license structure, we've not only made licensing a less complicated procedure, but less costly for our customers. In addition, Boundless is now offering a $75 limited time rebate which makes the SAM software pricing even more attractive, reducing the final cost to the customer to $25. Robust administrative controls and low site license pricing set SAM apart from other thin-client utility tools available and make it one of the best management tools in the marketplace today." End users can obtain their rebate at http://www.boundless.com/sam2 Boundless' SAM software provides administrators with full remote management capabilities including the ability to perform device diagnostics, schedule automatic software updates, set BIOS parameters, change network settings, and monitor and modify Capio II configurations. SAM can be used with Microsoft NT 4.0 Server, Windows NT 4.0 Workstation, Windows NT Terminal Server Edition, and Windows 2000 operating systems. "Boundless' administrative management software was instrumental in our decision to purchase their Capio II WBTs," said Joe Cron, Assistant Vice President of Systems and Networks at CHD Meridian Healthcare, a leading provider of employee-sponsored healthcare services. "This tool has allowed our IT staff to make changes to firmware and configurations without travelling to the end user location, saving us countless time and money." Glenn Grossman, Director of Network Technology and Technical Support Services at 2b Technologies, Inc., a software developer and ASP for visitor management services added, "While we don't need to worry frequently about our Capio II thin clients, the SAM software saves valuable time when troubleshooting problems. We use the software at larger ASP customer sites to reduce support costs and end user frustration. The software allows us to service the thin clients to provide comprehensive support to our customers. We find the Capio II thin client very reliable and the support from Boundless top notch. Using Boundless products has allowed us to deploy our software effectively and without worry."
