Bridgman, Michigan, June 13, 2018 – B&L Information Systems has issued Odyssey 6.1 Maintenance Release 4 for general availability. This maintenance release continues the user interface modernization which is the 2019 goal for the Odyssey Web User Interface (UI).

“Odyssey 6.1 Maintenance Release 4 will be the final stability and performance update to Odyssey 6.1,” states Brad Clark, Manager – Research & Development. “We are now in the final stages of Odyssey 6.2 development, which includes many business application enhancements centered around scheduling and production.
