Spectrum Concepts Inc claims that two new versions of its XCOM 6.2 communications software enables System/36 and AS/400 users to initiate automatic data transfers to MS-DOS micros, writes Microbytes Daily. The New York-based company believes the the new release will be of particular value to companies with subsidiaries in different time zones. Additional communications enhancements include the exchange of reports, files, and jobs with other System/36 and AS/400 systems, IBM mainframes, System/38s, DEC VAX minicomputers, and Apollo Computer, Sun Microsystems and AT&T 3B2 Unix workstations. XCOM users avoid the overheads of older, 3270 file transfer products, and gain automatic code conversion, error detection, retransmission, and data security, explained Spectrum’s sales and marketing chief, Keith Eisenstark. The company counts a hospital supplies distributor, and a major US pharmaceutical firm amongst its current XCOM 6.2 customer base.
