A PC-power management tool from EMCO is available with an extended set of notification features. Version 4.1 includes functionality to send text notifications to network PCs and to be notified of remote tasks execution by e-mail.
Online PR News – 07-October-2011 – – EMCO Software, a provider of software solutions for computer network management, announced today the availability of a new version of the Remote Shutdown utility used for PC-power management in Windows networks. Version 4.1 allows network administrators to send text notifications to network computers. This feature can be used to notify users about planned power management actions or share important information. A notification is displayed in a standard window with the text entered by the Remote Shutdown operator. Users may close this window after reading. Also, the new version of Remote Shutdown allows locking and unlocking computers across the network.
Another new feature available in Remote Shutdown 4.1 is an option to receive e-mail notifications about completed tasks. If this option is enabled, system administrators don't need to open the application in order to check statuses for executed tasks. In this case, Remote Shutdown will send e-mail notifications to specified addresses. Such notifications include information on the executed task and the execution status for every network computer where the task has been executed. Network administrators can specify global settings to be used for all tasks and override the settings for particular tasks, if required.
"Improvements and new features introduced in version 4.1 of Remote Shutdown are based on the feedback we receive from network administrators every day. Text notifications was one of most highly demanded features, which is especially important for educational organizations where administrators need to notify users regularly. The new notification feature was successfully tested in several large universities and school districts and got a lot of positive feedback, as well as other improvements we introduced in version 4.1", Thorarinn Oskarsson, CEO at EMCO Software, said.
