PUMP-FLO Premium
LACEY, Washington—August 11 2010— PUMP-FLO™ Solutions (An Engineered Software Business), announces the release of PUMP-FLO Premium a major update to their web-based pump selection software. The new program is a subscription-based web-version of its popular PUMP-FLO software. The new PUMP-FLO Premium features a secure cloud computing technology, a refined user interface and coincides with a completely redesigned website. New collaborative sharing tools, the saving of pump search lists and the ability of searching through multiple manufacturer's catalogs at one time, top the list of new highlights. http://tinyurl.com/pump-flopremium

PUMP-FLO Premium is a subscription-based service meeting the needs of pump users, specifying engineers, pump resellers, and manufacturers for sizing and selection, showing dynamic pump curves and aiding purchasers and suppliers in the quotation process. Over 80 pump manufacturers support the PUMP-FLO Premium program by making their pump performance catalogs available in electronic format. The program searches from over 135,000 digitized pump curves, making PUMP-FLO the largest pump performance database in the world.

"One new feature that I am sure will please many current users is the ability to search from more than one manufacturer's catalog at a time. This has been a request for some time now, and we wanted to provide a tool that isn't available in any single program right now in the market," said Carolyn Popp, President and Chief Technical Officer for Engineered Software, Inc. "Listening to customer feedback is what has made PUMP-FLO the industry standard, and this is another example of where we are listening to our customers to provide the best tools available. With over 200,000 registered users of the PUMP-FLO software, we are fortunate to have a vast database of customer ideas to draw from."

One goal of PUMP-FLO Premium is to create a community of pump users where collaboration is simple and easy. Utilizing the latest in cloud computing technology, PUMP-FLO Premium stores pump projects on secured Web servers, and enables sharing of the pump selection between users. The new "List Manager" feature makes this possible, allowing users to save their "Selection Lists," add project notes, customize the view and rename columns. The List Manager also lets users share saved search results with anyone having an e-mail address and internet access including non-subscribers. The user has the ability to allow full access or a view only status to with whomever they are sharing. Non-subscribers can view the Selection List for free on the PUMP-FLO Premium collaboration website as "View Only."
