"Moving to isCOBOL opens up new windows of opportunity for our business. We can now provide our software on any platform that supports the Java Runtime Environment – meaning more flexibility for traditional desktop deployment models, as well as the possibility of delivering enhanced thin client and Web 2.0 distributions down the road..."
Rolf Ahlrichs, programmer, HAY Computing
A B2B provider of enterprise resource planning (ERP) software and accounting software for the electronics industry, HAY Computing Service Gmbh's (HAY Computing's) “HAYWaWi” ERP package has been successfully serving German-based businesses for years.
HAY Computing wanted to provide its customer base greater choice in distribution platforms as well as the opportunity to take advantage of alternative technologies such as Open Office; however, being developed on ACUCOBOL-GT, HAY Computing had always limited HAYWaWi releases to Windows-based clients.
Impressed with the compatibility between ACUCOBOL-GT and isCOBOL, as well as with the competitive isCOBOL price-point, HAY Computing moved its entire HAYWaWi ERP package -- over 2500 COBOL programs accessing ISAM data -- to the isCOBOL platform in less than five months.
