RE: 98-99 EDExpress: Benchmarking Results and Printer Drivers
Benchmarking Results for Version 4.0
Recently, CPS has begun providing benchmark standards for the performance of
EDExpress. The benchmarks can be found in the cover letter accompanying the
software for Version 4.0.
Benchmarking was performed on printing, importing, and exporting processes on many
different environments. Please use this information as a guideline to evaluate how
your system is operating.
If your system results are substantially different than the benchmarked results, you can
fax your system information to the CPS Customer Service fax number at
319-358-4260. A customer service representative will evaluate your information and
call you back with suggestions for improving your system's performance.
CPS Customer Service has received several inquiries regarding problems printing in
the 1998-99 EDExpress software. CPS rewrote the print function for the 98-99
software so users can now use the printer driver that corresponds to their printer type.
For example, if you have a HP LaserJet 5si printer, you should now use the HP
LaserJet 5si printer driver.
We used a different approach from the 1997-98 software in order to simplify printing
set up and improve results. This new print logic will remain the same for the 99-00
The 98-99 EDExpress software was tested using the HP LaserJet IIIsi, 4si and 5si
printers. If you do not have one of these printers, please first try using the printer
driver that corresponds to your printer. If that does not work, please try using a HP
LaserJet III or HP LaserJet IIIsi printer driver.
If you have any questions, if you need a copy of the cover letter that accompanied
Version 4.0, or if you are still having difficulty printing, please contact CPS Customer
Service at 1-800-330-5947 or via email at CPS@NCS.COM.
