TMW Systems Taps Profound Logic for Web Expertise
September 24, 2013 Alex Woodie
Profound last week announced that the new Web Editions of the Innovative, TL2000, and TMT Fleet Maintenance products that TMW will launch at the TransForum 2013 conference were developed using its Web development and modernization tools.
As part of the development process for the new applications, TMW Systems (now owned by Trimble) engaged Profound in creating a custom conversion theme using the Profound UI. To that end, developers were able to transform traditional 5250 green-screen elements into graphical representations, such as checkboxes, dropdowns, and grids.
The development effort also involved adding new tab- and menu-based functionality into the TMW screens. The overall result is that the applications look and feel more like applications that users are accustomed to working with, but without sacrificing traditional business logic and workflow elements that TMW users are accustomed to.
“With the new Web Editions of their IBM i products, TMW is delivering powerful applications that go beyond anything possible using 5250 emulators and traditional green screens,” Profound Logic CEO Alex Roytman says in a press release. “The Profound UI suite enabled TMW to give their customers the highly functional graphical applications they were asking for.”
The TransForum 2013 show is taking place this week in Anaheim, California.
