January 30, 2015 – DRV Technologies, Inc., the developer of FlexTools report management, electronic forms and Secure MICR laser checks software, report writer /  query tool, and system monitoring for the IBM i, iSeries, and AS/400, has announced the release of MessageFlex 3.0 which is DRV Tech‘s software for unattended IBM i System Monitoring  and notification.

The IBM System i does a great job telling you how it’s performing with system messages if you have someone monitoring for them, but with streamlining IT staffs everywhere, maintaining personnel to monitor a console for those messages is a commodity some companies simply don’t have.

DRV MessageFlex monitors IBM i message queues for system and program messages sending notifications by email, text message or instant message in real time. Significant enhancements have been added to monitor not only message queues, but also jobs, job queues, subsystems and system resources.

According to DRV President Richard Voss, “…many of the enhancements in MessgeFlex 3.0 come from feedback from our clients. DRV has always been welcomed to the creative suggestions our customers provide, and we listened.” Adding, “The most obvious customer-centric enhancement is our new Mobile App to allow our clients to view and respond to notifications sent from MessageFlex. DRV is always looking at ways to improve our customers user experience based on the feedback they provide us.”

  • MessageFlex System Notification
