By improving the access and usability of terminal-based applications and delivering them to anyone, delays are wiped-out, menial tasks are avoided and customer service is improved.
Reduce network and support costs
For many existing users of mainframe/mini applications, personal computer terminal emulation software is used for access over private networks or dial-up connections. This software represents recurring annual costs for upgrades as well as internal support costs for installation and training.
Access to mainframe applications using products like Screensurfer or Flynet Screen Tools can avoid the recurring costs of terminal emulation software while instantly reducing the "friction" involved in "getting connected".
Using our product's customization features, host applications can be re-packaged as far more attractive and usable HTML pages or Smart Client applications. This can provide drastic improvements in the readability of information and the effectiveness of decision-making based on that information.
Reduce Training Costs
For many core applications, increasing functionality over time has forced unfortunate comprimises in usability. In many cases, critical data has pushed aside descriptions and prompts leaving displays cryptic to any but a trained and practiced user.
By renovating these screens in an HTML or Smart Client environment, usability can be drastically improved. Prompts and descriptions can be included as well as access to existing documentation reformatted in HTML or familiar GUI data entry screens.
Expand the Audience
Once applications are easier to use and information is presented in a more readable manner, organizations can use Screensurfer or Screen Tools to deliver those applications to anyone they choose to.
Inside any organization there are many who can benefit from the information available in existing host applications, but who don't have the time or justification to learn their use.
For others, the additional cost and headaches of installing a terminal emulation package aren't worth gaining occasional access to difficult-to-use applications.
Inventu and our products can help you bridge this Information Gap by improving both availability and usability in a single solution.
For E-Commerce Solutions, our products can provide a huge jumpstart over "build from scratch" or packages.
Do it Quickly
Screensurfer's incremental development provides the ability to enhance certain screens while providing a default emulation for simple or infrequently used screens. As a result, your project size can be small, and delivery can be achieved in weeks or months at low cost. With Screensurfer's Granular Passthrough technology, not only can you pick and chose which screens to enhance; you can choose to enhance only portions of a screen while passing-through those portions acceptable to the target user.
Inventu Viewer+'s Modeling tools provide you with the ability to track and define the use of information flow in and out of the host application the way your users work. With comprehensive code generation capabilities, an ASP.NET application can be framed-up ready for the details to be completed and a full model-view-controller application is the result.
Do it Efficiently
Screensurfer's compiled template technology assures that you won't have to keep "going back to the well" for hard-fought budget dollars as your project becomes successful. Unlike other 3270 web gateway products, Screensurfer screams through thousands of concurrent sessions on a single Pentium processor.
With Inventu Viewer+, your model-view-controller implementation in managed .NET code provides the ability to enable, enhance and evolve your application into more than simply a host extender.
