|I have used Omnis since 1985, starting with Omnis 2 on Apple II, then Omnis 3, 5 and 7. Just Software is now using Omnis Studio on Mac OS X and Windows. In all these years, we have never needed to move to another tool.

Multi-platform, web-enabled Omnis solution provides easy financial and commercial management for SMEs
When you are running a small or medium sized business (SME), you need a good and reliable accounting and general management software system, to allow you to focus on the core activities of your business. You need to comply with various accounting rules and company regulations, but above all you need a system that takes care of all the administration tasks and removes some of the stress of running your own business. There are many accounting and general management software packages for large businesses, but finding an easy-to-use and affordable system for small and medium sized businesses is not so easy. Often this market is satisfied by small independent software houses, like Just Software, who understand the challenges of running a small business.
Just Software has been supplying accounting and general management software to small and medium sized companies for many years, first with a system called Cockpit and since 2005 a package called Dave. Cockpit was developed in Omnis 7 and caters for small companies, while Dave is developed in Omnis Studio, using FrontBase as the back-end SQL database, providing financial and general management for medium sized companies. Both packages are cross-platform running under Mac OS 9 and the latest version of OS X, as well as Windows and Linux, while Dave provides remote access to some of its functions.
Dave consists of different modules that are fully integrated: Dave Accounting is a complete accounting system with general ledger, accounts receivable and payable, VAT, and Intrastat; Dave Order Administration manages document workflow within your company, including orders, deliveries, invoices, inventory, and sales statistics; Dave CRM stores all communication between your company, your customers and prospects and centralizes all sales opportunities. To make the software complete, there is also a time registration and agenda module, and Dave Project, a module to manage projects.
"The success of Just Software is based on the right choice of the development environment that we made. Thanks to Omnis we developed products thatare reliable, user-friendly and easy to maintain. And what's really important, being able to develop on one platform and deploy on all other platforms: all Mac platforms, all Windows platforms as well as Linux," said Guido Kestens, Founder of Just Software. "We have used Omnis since 1985, starting with Omnis 2 on Apple II, then Omnis 3, 5 and 7. Just Software is now using Omnis Studio on Mac OS X and Windows. In all these years, we have never needed to move to another tool. Omnis has always satisfied the needs of a programmer."
