Bloomfield, NJ — April 14, 2015 — Continuing to change perspectives on software development, Surround Technologies announces the general availability of Version 6.0 of its Accelerator for .NET software development platform, a premier productivity solution for the development and use of desktop, browser and mobile applications with Windows, Windows Azure, IBM i and IBM System z.

The latest release of Surround Technologies' Accelerator brings with it tools for simplifying modern business needs of users, developers and executives alike. Accelerator Version 6 will change your perspective on how and where your enterprise applications can run and how far they can extend beyond standard line of business. Building off of the success of Version 5 and it's commitment to providing quality Line-of-Business applications on the web, Version 6 brings tools and solutions to grow your business further and integrate common business tasks faster and more efficiently.

Getting your applications on the web has never been easier! Use the new Accelerator Content Management System (CMS) to create web applications quickly and easily. Accelerator has always been a form of CMS for developers to assemble line of business applications. These new enhancements puts the control of content in the hands of non-developers. This is a great addition for the line of business applications, but also provides the ability to create anything from static content websites to any kind of Web application. Securely expand who can maintain content, navigation, images, styles and anything else you define beyond the IT department, and let the creativity flow.

Hiring has never been simpler! Use our new Human Resources Job Management application to attract and recruit the right talent! With this plugin you can easily add job-board functionality to your software applications and web sites, manage job openings, and streamline the process to identify the higher quality applicants that are right for the position. Accelerator HR Jobs Management Application saves time, reduces duplication, enhances consistency, and simplifies recruiting.

Enhanced Document Management provides digital filing, sharing and management to upload, share, track, group, organize, use and reference any kind of document, file, or media. Authenticated users can upload files from any device and attach them to any record in your systems where they can be accessed by any other authorized users, streamlining processes and reducing user's time and frustration looking for related documents.

The Version 6 release of Accelerator introduces the new Work Queue application. The first piece of our full Workflow Automation application due out later this year, Work Queue provides the ability to add items to a person or teams work queue manually or automatically through software API's. Review and work Work Queue items based on any combination of fields such as type, priority or date.

Another new service released with Version 6, the Job Monitor application provides the ability to schedule or submit jobs to run on a selected server as a background service. This is particularly useful for long running batch type jobs, jobs that need to be set to run on a particular schedule or jobs that need to be offloaded onto a specific server. Jobs may be submitted manually by person or automatically from virtually anywhere through software APIs. Job Monitors run as a background services on a server and process jobs as they are submitted to the Job Queue. Authorized users can monitor, pause and cancel Jobs as needed. Working smarter, Accelerator gets the job done where and when you need it.

Along with all of the new features in Accelerator Version 6, we have also added further integration with third-party controls to make it even faster and easier to plug them into your systems. There are a vast array of controls available that can be used to create very stunning and innovative user interfaces. Find what works for you and drop it in. As an example, if you need to go beyond our standard grid control, then plug in the RadGridView from Telerik to get built in functionality for grouping with aggregate functions. Need Advanced charting, plug in the Telerik's RadChart.

Accelerator for .NET Version 6.0 continues to build on the existing legacy of developing more, developing better and developing faster. The Accelerator allows for a range of options, from reusing code while building a rich user interface, to completely rebuilding systems, and everything in between.
