Redwood Shores, Calif. (10/04/2004) - MetricStream, Inc., a market leader in the enterprise-wide quality and compliance market today announced that MetricStream 3.5 will provide offline capabilities to specifically enable mobile users such as internal auditors to easily do their job. MetricStream 3.5 is now generally available to all MetricStream customers. MetricStream also announced today new capabilities for application delivery via email - see associated press release.

Internal auditors, who are very mobile and typically work offsite, today use spreadsheets and printed reports to collect audit data at the site and then enter that data into their auditing application when they are back at their office. Since auditors typically work in teams and the audit team leader needs to review all the data collected by team members, the current data collection techniques become very cumbersome in environments when checklists are large and timelines are tight. MetricStream 3.5 offline capability enables audit teams to take their audit checklists offline on their laptops, easily share collected data among team members using its unique offline briefcase functionality, and then synchronize the checklists with collected data back into the online MetricStream system when they are back in the office. MetricStream’s innovative briefcase capability provides seamless usage across the offline and online modes.

"MetricStream continues to distance itself from other vendors by offering the most innovative capabilities in its products", said Shellye Archambeau, CEO of MetricStream. "Ensuring offline access with easy synchronization by audit teams is one of the most requested features by our customers as they prepare to assess the effectiveness of internal controls for Sarbanes-Oxley or validate their processes for regulatory compliance and quality initiatives. With MetricStream 3.5, we are now uniquely positioned to address these customer needs."
