We are proud to inform that our IM software got a great review at https://reviews.financesonline.com/p/bopup-im/ The product also received few awards from the reviewers team.



In addition to key features of the software that the review describes there are also 3 scenarios are provided. They help to understand how Bopup IM platform can improve and level up a real-time communication in customer's real environment and situations.

The 1st case overviews a call center environment where employees must be instantly and urgently notified using Bopup Observer client. In the 2nd scenario the instant messengers are deployed as HIPAA compliant software over clinic network to let doctors and nurses communicate with each other using desktop and Android clients. And in the last case the File Distribution feature is finely described when important documents and presentations can be easily distributed to users' computers in an automated mode.

The review does provide a deep pricing information for each type of the messenger client separately, and for our bundles including Standard, Office and Enterprise Packs. There is also a proper information about technical support that we as a software vendor provide to our customers. At the same time the review page looks to be a good place to see different product comparison and find out alternative software for Bopup IM.

Messaging Groups of instant messaging server now support multiple IP ranges

New version 5.3.0 of Bopup Communication Server is available for download. This is major release of the server product that added support for multiple ranges of IP addresses that can be now associated with each messaging group. Previous versions of the communication server supported only a single IP range that could be used to dynamically add users to the group. In some cases that was not enough if a customer has large and complicated network with different ranges of IP addresses. Now that question can be easily solved.

Assign users to group dynamically via multiple IP ranges

The "IP range" tab of the group properties dialog contains a list of associated IP ranges. Click Add... button to add a new range of addresses including a short comment string.

Adding a new range of IP addresses

To remove an existing IP range click Remove button.

All dynamically assigned users get an instant notification once they have been added or removed from a group.

The new version of the IM server also fixed a user display option that shows user names in the server console in a choosen format. It worked wrong regardless the selected format.

Block user password, schedule database backups and more in new version of IM server

New version 5.2.9 of Bopup Communication Server has been released. In this release we tried to implement recent requests and suggestions we got from our customers. See the list of changes below.


What's new:

Added option to block user's password
There is a new setting added to the user's properties dialog in the server console. Now it is possible to prevent changing password by user himself from the messenger software by checking "Block password" option on Authentication tab. It works only if Private login/password authentication is used for the user (set globally or personally).

Send messages to all or only connected users from a command line interface
We extended BCSCmd.exe command line tool that added support to send messages to all user accounts on the communication server. So it is possible to deliver an instant message to only currently connected (online) users or all users on the server with /OFFLINE switch.

Backup SQL database from a command line
Another great improvement is option to make backup files of IM server database using the same BCSCmd.exe command line utility. It can be now called from Windows Task Scheduler to make database backups regularly with saving data into specified folder/file path.
