Headquartered in Frankfurt, Germany with offices in England and Thailand, J+D Software AG designs, develops and markets 'Electronic Job Bag' software to the marketing and design industry in Europe and beyond. The system is based around a core 'Production' module that will track costs and relationships from the initial estimate right up to when the invoice leaves accounts. ProAd Professionalô also contains modules for specialist Media Bookings, Resource and Project Management, Fee Chasing, Stock Control all matched with a powerful reporting utility that gives agency management the 'inside track' regarding real-time business critical information.
Why we chose Omnis: "My main contact is with the advertising and marketing community," said Stefan Dörrstein of J+D Software AG. "This market is unique since each company has precise and demanding requirements to be met using ProAd Professional, and they must be met using both the Windows and Mac OS platforms at the same time! This is where Omnis shows its true strength and value. As a business sector, the advertising sector moves quickly, so as a key supplier we need to be able to move quickly as and when required. Omnis gives J+D Software just the right environment to respond."
Why we continue to use Omnis: because it is an easy-to-use rapid 4GL development environment. It provides for many native database connections which has the advantage of quick data access times. Notwithstanding the fact that Omnis is a true cross-platform environment saving the need for separate coding on Windows and Mac environments in-house. This is before we have mentioned that Omnis supports object orientation, messaging and multi-language screen design with version control which means we can control the development process. And, with the external component interface we can interact with other programs like Word.
