Using SmartWare Plus to Build the Integrated Office
There are two primary markets for SmartWare Plus. The first and most obvious market is to offer Linux as a new platform for existing applications. For example, people in a dentist's office already using SmartWare but who now need a multi-user answer are the perfect candidates for a move to Linux.
Secondly, SmartWare is a good fit for office situations where the computer is a tool to perform a particular set of well-defined tasks. For example, an order-entry system could be quickly built that would meet the specific needs of a company. New features (such as letter writing from the order system) could easily be added when needed.
As these two markets have identified millions of possible places where Angoss SmartWare Plus could be a good solution, I think I will stop there. Having done requirements statements for computer solutions for government and industry, and then searched for the right solution for hundreds of systems, I want to emphasize that it is crucial to find the right tool for the job. And, for a lot of jobs, this package, along with Linux, can be the right tool.
An evaluation copy of SmartWare Plus is available over the Internet and is also included on the InfoMagic archive CD set. This copy has save and print disabled, but for $50, you can get the key to enable it.
Commercial licenses cost $685 for the development system and $299 for each additional user. Angoss Software may be reached by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org, by phone at 416-593-1122 or by fax at 416-593-5077.
