CFC prepares for launch of Windows 98

CAR Fleet Control is preparing its range of fleet and workshop management software products for the launch of Microsoft Windows 98. The new version of the Windows system, on which Car Fleet Control's software is designed to run, is due to be launched on to the market late this year or early in 1999.

However, as a dedicated test site for the system and member of the Microsoft Developer Market, Car Fleet Control has been running a pilot copy of the software in conjunction with its own packages for three months. Car Fleet Control managing director Greg Connell said: 'The Windows operating system is the bedrock on which our software is built, so it is important for us to ensure that our customers encounter no problems when the new version hits the market. The new version offers many advantages which will benefit our users.'

New features of Windows 98 include an 'active desktop' which will allow faster and easier Internet access, shorter start-up and shut down times for regularly used applications, improved crash protection and a simpler setting-up process.
