London and New York, Aug. 17, 1999 - Popkin Software advised businesses to take care to avoid being frozen out by the millennium bug. Across the world many organizations are planning to freeze their installations to protect themselves in the run up of the Year 2000. In several instances, the freeze is expected to last well into the first quarter next year.

Popkin as adopted an approach to assist companies in avoiding being frozen out. The company has released a version of its best selling System Architect 2001 modeling tool that companies can install now without the need to pre-purchase the software. "The idea is to allow people to install the product widely and have it lie dormant on machines. The product can then either be activated for evaluation purposes using the key code provided or - more importantly - allow customers to purchase the software on a commercial basis without any new installations," said Mark McGregor, vice president of business strategy at Popkin.
