Screenshot of "tPOC" - a Windows application resp. offline variant of an SAP system (cProjects). For this application, a control-library was developed and implemented. This library allows for mimicing the original application's general look and feel (SAP Web-GUI). Data is being hosted using a local SQL Server (Express); data exchange with the SAP host system is performed through SAP web-services.
 
 
KursOrganizer - Course Administration Software
KursOrganizer is a stand-alone application geared at companies that organise courses and/or classes. It has been on the market for over a decade. The screenshot here shows version 10 which is still being worked on at present. V10 will, apart from directly working with Microsoft SQL Server as its database system, also be able to work as a so called "Smart Client". That is, KursOrganizer is capable of connecting to a database server through the use of web-services. In order to read from and write to KursOrganizer's database, the only prerequisite is thus an existing internet connection. Visit the >>KursOrganizer Website for additional information about this product (German only).

PhotoExpress - a photo-printing kiosk application
PhotoExpress is a stand-alone application for printing photos off of several media, such as memory cards, USB-sticks, by connecting a device using an infrared- or bluetooth-connection or by sending an MMS to it. Photos that have been transferred may either burned to a CD or be edited and printed out at the station (PC) that is running PhotoExpress. The application has been developed so that the PC that it is running on may be placed in public places; it allows users to pick the language to be used, including support for right-to-left oriented languages such as Arab.
 
 
SerialTester - an application for analysing and testing data streams sent and received via devices connected through a serial port
SerialTester looks back on several years of development and ongoing enhancements. It was created for the purpose of analysing data streams from and to devices that utilize the serial port for communicating with them. It was last improved during a project for a British consortium of several laboratories and analysis device manufacturers in order to accomplish bi-directional communication between an LMS (Laboratory Management System) and several analysis devices.

LogBook - serving employees both in-house and out in the field
LogBook - serving employees both in-house and out in the field
LogBook was developed for a German manufacturer of grinding plants. The customer's field service is characterized by the fact that its employees are working in the remotest parts of the world where no connection whatsoever may be established to the parent houses with their database servers as long as the employees are on site. LogBook has thus been created to help field service employees to continuously edit and enter data without being connected to the central database system (Microsoft SQL Server). In order to synchronize their local data (held in an Microsoft Access database), the application will use the company's VPN connection and connect to the main database through web-services when an internet connection becomes available. However, the in-house employees use the exact same application and connect to the central database system directly.
 
 
Excerpt of an group-hostel's main administration-form.
An unusual type of data-display with (overlapping) bookings being shown together with information about general and county-specific information in conjunction with holidays as well as school-vacations (definable or using pre-defined counties with already stored data). This form is being used as a booking-overview and offers quick access to all - existing as well as new - bookings' details by just clicking an item.

Login-form of a timesheet-application.
Login-form of a timesheet-application.
This application was built using a sophisticated system of different user-roles/access-rights. According to the rights defined for groups the users get assigned to, the system-logon will be different for each user according to the rights specified for her/him. The screenshot shows a user that has been granted full-access to the system.
 
 
Main form of a timesheet-system with overviews of day-, month- and year-related data.
The application's data-backend is based on an Access2000™-system which is also being administered using an Access2000-frontend, providing access for around 250 users. The screenshot shown here though is a part within the project that is mainly being installed on workstations without an Access-installation. Hence, a separate application has been programmed using Visual-Basic 6™ ( - assuring access to the database-system even without a local Access-installation - thus saving license-related cost without the necessity of distributing an Access-runtime-version in order to use the application.

One of the main form's (detail-) sections within the access-application mentioned in conjunction with the timesheet-system above. This switchboard offers hierarchically/logically based access to the application's sections.
The area being shown in this screenshot offers access to the administration of pick-lists that help ease-up the process of entering repetitive data in many parts of the application while preventing faulty input by restricting input to the predefined items at the same time.
 
 
Warehouse administration-form of a metal- and steel-construction company's business-system.
In this application, all in- and outbound traffic-volume as well as internal movement of articles has been eased up by providing an integrated lookup-functionality together with the current stock. All bookings/transfers are being handled from here which, at the same time, helps simplifying inventory-related tasks.

If generally necessary - or upon demand, integrated toolbars provide quick access to frequently needed functionalities within the application.
The toolbar being shown has been taken from an application with computer telephony integration (CTI) using the TAPI-interface (telephony application programmers interface). If the system detects an incoming call, the user is notified along with an option to directly jump to the corresponding record (if existing), providing a means to quickly view and/or edit this contact's data or add i.e. an entry about the current phone call. A toolbar might as well serve as a means to turn common switches on or off. In the above example, a button is used to toggle the system's automatic call-detection (off in this example).
 
 
Scheduler
Scheduler
A scheduler with an integrated calendar, offering quick access to the desired date or date-area. In addition, the integration of external applications, such as Microsoft Outlook, should be considered - sometimes even favored. Already existing resources can be re-used by means of automating Office-applications with the custom software created for you, providing more efficiency and synergy effects.

Switchboards offer a hierarchically ordered user-interface, helping provide an intuitive operation of functionalities within the application. There's several areas that will - after being clicked - guide you to the next possible step. To further help recognition, all areas show different colors. Keyboard-shortcuts for sections and the underlying items further improve the accessibility of an application's areas/forms.
