New in FontAgent Pro Server 5
The latest version of FontAgent Pro Server adds speed and several new features:
* Documents manager that stores and displays font license information and EULAs
* Browser-based reports that track font usage by machine, user, date, time and activation status
* WEBSIWYG, the browser-based online catalog that shows server-based fonts in their native typeface outlines and includes a shopping cart that enables users to request access to specific fonts from administrators and purchasing managers
* New industrial-strength J2EE server architecture that guarantees flexibility and power now and in the future
New, easier, more robust Active Directory/Open Directory services:
As in prior releases, the new server includes FontAgent Pro's industry-leading font integrity manager, automatic font and set distribution, and administration of the server and fonts from any connected client.
Unrivaled Performance Saves Everyone Time:
FontAgent Pro 5's J2EE-based, multi-threaded, multi-processor aware architecture is designed for speed to provide even faster synchronization with networked client users.
