Ever bought one of those applications that you need for use around the house or a small business that just does one or two little things? Then find out you get what you pay for and it falls horribly short of your expectations? Our US based company, TheDataManager, Inc., was formed to create solutions that fill the void of quality in low cost (under $100 US) applications. The goal was simple - take price off the table and over-deliver on quality.

What development tool allows you to bring computing to the vast consumer market, yet is affordable to deploy? Well, to do it right you need a robust database, and, since it's a very big market, you need cross platform. It didn't take long to settle in on Omnis Studio. Cross platform; OS X compatible; should exceed any users need for storage and speed; a price point that allows deployment and an engineering group at Omnis that continues to keep extending and polishing Studio.

Omnis Studio and Mac OS X allowed TheDataManager to create an application that looks like it came from inside Apple - it was even modeled similar to iApps. This application touches many of the Studio features and was developed to be able to take advantage of multiple users as required. They have also been able to deliver this as a single icon, double-clickable application under OS X.

The first product released, TheRecipeManager, was perfect. OS X is easy for users, even new ones. The industrial strength of Studio has allowed them to create a recipe management tool with features that have never been seen before, yet still be easy to use. Affordable tools, before Studio were very limited in their abilities. Apple liked it as well and, since the release of TRM in January of 2004, they have sold thousands of copies worldwide through the Apple retail stores and the online Apple Store.

In addition to traditional target customer, the home cook, doctors give TRM to patients who need to monitor their food intake: for body building trainers and instructors that insist their clients eat and exercise to a rigorous schedule, tracking and graphing their exercise as well as their food intake. TheDataManager has also worked with the American Diabetic Association, various on-line recipe providers and the International Association of Culinary Professionals to assist them, via TRM, with their recipe goals. Several companies give TRM out as a corporate gift. You will find TRM being used in restaurants and cafeterias, bars, hotels, schools, government facilities and churches, all over the world.

Omnis is an industrial strength relational database that is truly cross platform. Business customers traditionally don't want to worry about one computing platform over another - we are one of very, very few that provide this type of product for Mac and Windows. The power of Omnis allows us to easily manipulate nearly any amount of data; one customer has over 67,000 (really) recipes in their system. As a relational database, Studio allows TheRecipeManager the ability to manipulate large amounts of data, including still images and QuickTime movies.
