MADISON, Ala.—(BUSINESS WIRE)—March 8, 2006— Graphic Technologies, Inc. (GTI) today announced GTSmartClient. GTSmartClient fulfills the promise of Microsoft's Smart Client vision by improving the web user's experience. No longer contained within a browser, GTSmartClient provides users with the look and feel of a rich client application while giving administrators the lower cost of a web application. Data resides on the web server, but it can be optionally downloaded to the client for disconnected use.
"We are pleased to be a technical leader in the geospatial field,"
observed Joey Rogers, GTI's Director of Development. "But we are even
more excited about offering our customers the lower administrative
costs that are inherent with a web application while still maintaining
the rich client feel and functionality."
As well as providing a powerful viewing seat for GIS data,
GTSmartClient will also provide a new channel for quickly creating and
sharing information such as redlines, notes, or any other data with a
geospatial connotation. This shared data is immediately available to
all GTSmartClient, GTWeb, and GTViewer users.
As part of offering GTSmartClient, GTI will release an upgraded
version of its GTWebServer. Implemented as a web service and using
ASP.NET, GTWebServer supports both GTSmartClient and the current GTWeb
viewers. GTSmartClient and the upgrade for GTWebServer will be
available April 30, 2006.
Over 3,000 people at dozens of companies are using one or more
members of GTViewer Product family. These users find that GTI's
software makes them more productive by placing geospatial data at
their fingertips and also by offering advanced capabilities that used
to be available only with a full GIS seat.
