Open Options announces MMS End of Life (EOL)
Increased market demands for technology innovation and the addition of a functionally richer access control software product has prompted us to announce the End of Life/End of Sale of NPower MMS. Effective April 15, 2006 NPower MMS will no longer be available for sale and all technical support discontinued except for those noted enterprise customers. Open Options strongly recommends that customers begin planning migration strategies for moving to the improved NPower DNA software platform. See the announcement.
