SW Update Gives More Control

An update to Lancaster, the interactive teaching software for Macintosh computer labs, includes several handy new features to assist instructors in lab management. A new statistics feature generates and prints lab statistics such as computer, application and printer usage. With this data, lab administrators can make informed purchasing decisions and give attention to hardware that is used most. Another new feature, the Setup window, displays every student workstation's hardware configuration including total and available RAM, hard disk space and system software version. This allows lab managers to remotely troubleshoot and quickly perform inventory. Lancaster comes with a free one-year software subscription with 24-hour, toll-free technical support. COMPanion Corp., Salt Lake City, UT, (800) 347-6439.
