Omnis Studio allowed the developers
to produce cross-platform solutions, quickly and easily
The Challenge: A while ago senex GmbH had reached a dead end with their ERP system ‘senex-wws’. The system worked perfectly well but could run under UNIX only and with a text-based user interface. So the company searched for a development tool that:
- Offered independance from the operating system ideally it should be cross platform and so guarantee both flexibility and return on the investment for the company and their customers,
- Allowed object oriented, quick and easy development to help them to respond to the requirements of their customers, and
- Provided database independance.
At that time they decided to use Omnis Studio because it achieved their requirements and it has a good price/performance ratio.
Initially they applied for a project to develop a standard test system with an integrated test machine control for drugs in the chemical and pharmaceutical industries. The system had high demands for security and the methodology of the program development.
“Thanks to the good support by the Omnis Support team we have been able – although being newbies to Omnis – to create a prototype quickly and to convince the customer on this basis. According to the rules of GMP (Good Manufacturing Practice) and of ISO 9001 we developed this solution, for which the Omnis VCS was a big help,” said Dagmar Strobel of senex GmbH. The software system is called ‘tts11’ and is used today at well-known corporations.
Since that time they have completed the re-design of their business software ‘solution2’ in all essential functions. Apart from the standard functionality of a business management solution, it contains a complete Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) including Bill of Materials, production planning, a Customer Relationship Management (CRM), a Supply Chain Management (SCM), an integrated quality management with a Product Life Cycle Management (PLM), a standard document management, as well as many other easy to use features. By using object classes in Omnis and the use of ‘design pattern’ concepts, senex have reached a high level of consistent functionality and layout in their applications.
Thanks to the good support by the Omnis Support team we have been able – although being newbies to Omnis – to create a prototype quickly and… the Omnis VCS was a big help.
