Attachment Images Database Added to ArchAdministrator for Architects

BLOOMFIELD, NJ, September 20, 2002 -- PS Software Solutions announced today that it has fully integrated Attachment Images into its increasingly popular software program, ArchAdministrator. The new Attachment Images database has been designed to simplify the task of recording and linking an unlimited number of attachment images to any correspondence, invoice, travel log, field report, etc. This powerful new feature has been incorporated into existing ArchAdministrator modules and allows the user to do the following:

* store and organize scanned photos, sketches, CAD drawings, receipts, digital camera images, etc. 
* link/associate an unlimited number of images to any letter, memo, submittal, field report, etc.
* search and organize the images database by; project, date, category and/or detailed description
* view and/or print images in various formats (i.e. 1 image/pg, 2 images/pg, 3 images/pg, 4 images/pg)

The Attachment Images database allows the user to store a wide variety of image types (i.e., bmp, eps, jpg, gif, pcx, tga, tif, wmf). Attachment images are automatically linked to their associated correspondence record, field report, travel log, submittal, etc. and can be instantly recalled when reviewing the associated/linked record. The following list illustrates how ArchAdministrator users can utilize the new Attachment Images feature to store, link, and document: 

* digital camera images or scanned photos associated with a field report or site visit 
* scanned copies of expense receipts associated with travel expense reports 
* sketches, drawings, documents that are discussed in memos, letters, emails, transmittals, etc.
* scanned/digital copies of product cut sheets, shop drawings, etc. associated with submittal logs
