Twas the night before NAB…

We’re so excited that it’s almost time for NAB! We’ve been working really hard on a lot of great things to show during the convention and we just know you’re gonna love it!

We don’t want to give too much away just yet, but needless to say, what we have in store should help make it that much easier for you to tell the stories you want to tell and that your audiences need to know.

If you can, come visit us at SL7606 (South Lower Hall) and see what we have in store. If you can’t be here, follow us on Twitter (@AP_ENPS) for even more info as the show goes on!

For now, here’s our team for this year and we’re clearly really excited to get things going! Here’s to a great NAB 2016!

I need training! Help!

ENPS has lots of options for training. We want to make sure you know how to use the program you spend most of your day working in.

If you’re using the ENPS desktop/laptop client, and you have a simple question, try hitting the F1 key. That’s our on-line help guide and it contains everything you’ll need to work the ENPS client. It’s working for you 24 hours a day.

We have on-line videos that you can use, too, for ENPS 7, older versions of ENPS and ENPS Stats. Email info@enps.com to request access. You do have to be working at an ENPS site to get that access, though.

Does your whole newsroom need help? We can provide web-based training for simple refreshers, or we can come on site to help. Email info@enps.com if you’d like to set something up.

A quick note about .NET 4.6

Just a heads up – we’ve seen some issues in our testing with Microsoft .NET 4.6. We’re going to be addressing that as best we can as issues come to our attention, but it might be a good idea to hold off on installing that particular version on your client workstations until we’ve been able to finish more testing.

Our minimum requirement remains .NET 4.5.1, even though Microsoft is no longer supporting it. We’ll likely be updating that in the near future.

As always, if you have any questions, please feel free to contact the Helpdesk.

NAB Show 2016

Are you going to NAB this year? If so, we’d love to see you there!

We’re going to be showing a lot of cool stuff this year, mostly focused on bringing you new tools that you can use to manage and even improve your workflow while using ENPS. We’re not quite ready to talk specifics just yet, but if you haven’t had a chance to see ENPS 8 in action yet, you’ll see it on our stand for sure!

Check out the rest of this post for more information on how to get complimentary registration and for where our stand is located this year!

Stats, Elections and you!

I dunno if you guys knew this or not but an election is coming up soon and that means that some of you might be jumping back into the elections part of ENPS after having not seen it since…well, since the last election!

In version 6, we called this part of the product Stats and we’ve got some great training materials and documentation to help you re-acquaint yourself with how it works.

We also recently brought over the Stats stuff into version 7 and renamed it Elections. It works almost exactly the same with only a few little tweaks to get things running right.

If you’d like to learn more about Stats/Elections or if you need a refresher to catch you up again before the big day, give us a call and we’ll be happy to set something up for you!

It’s here! 8.0 is here!

After a lot of hard work and tons of testing, we’ve finally released 8.0!

As we talked about in our previous post, you may not notice too much that’s different in 8.0 than what you’re used to – we updated the colors a bit, mostly – but the biggest changes are on your servers, behind the scenes. We’ve improved the code that our servers run on, which should make it easier to add even more improvements and features to ENPS, which should make your job even easier!

That being said, you should always check with your MOS vendors before upgrading to be sure that they won’t have any problems with this new version. But once you do, you should absolutely upgrade and join us in 8.0 Land.

Aside from the bug fixes and features we’ve added, we also reworked our Release Note so that it’s easier to understand and more of you can see the great things we’re working hard to add to ENPS. Check it out after the jump…

So many releases, so little time!

You might’ve noticed that we’re putting out a lot more new versions than we used to. Last year, we went to a more Agile-based development method, which means we bite off small chunks of work and release it very quickly for your use and feedback.  This means we can get features and fixes to you much more quickly than before – in as little as a few weeks’ time.

You don’t have to take them all. A new release includes all of the features of the previous ones and our Release Notes highlight for you what’s most important in each release. But if you really need something fast, we can get it to you.

We try to keep all of the big changes out of the smaller releases we put out, so you should feel comfortable upgrading to whatever release you might want!

8.0 is coming…

A few years ago, we changed the game by completely reinventing ENPS from scratch – throwing out most of the old code from previous versions and writing a brand-new, modern client for version 7.

We went from this:

v6

To this:

v7

Now, we’re ready to take the next step with version 8.0. This new version represents some of the biggest and most exciting changes we’ve made as a part of developing ENPS. Keep reading to find out more!

I would love it if ENPS could do…

You know those days when you’re working away and say, “If only ENPS would do this it would be so much better.”  Don’t just say it to yourself, let us know!

Our developers are working all the time on new features and fixes that can help you. We’re always looking for feedback from our users – this means YOU – about how we can make ENPS better.  Some of our best features have come from users – maybe even the feature you rely on most. We offer new releases ever few weeks, so your idea may not be far from release, but you have to let us know what it is!
