Our company was in a difficult position facing a grim future, after having established ourselves in our vertical applications as a leader for over a decade. Our software applications were robust, proven, and backed by an experienced support staff. Following the advent of Windows and then the Web, our competitors, often with a fraction of our solution, were taking market share on the simple basis that their versions employed a Windows GUI. Lacking the time and resources required to rewrite our 15 module applications, not to mention the problems inherent in splitting our baseline, our prospects were dismal.

Our initial efforts revealed a handful of labor-intensive products that simply wrapped an 80x25 screen into a Windows-like format. A screen scraper type of approach, which would provide a sort of look and feel like Windows; at best a diluted interim solution.

The opportunity arose after discovering WinFAST™. What we found was a fundamentally different approach. Taking the stream of data destined for the character-based screen, WinFAST™ re-engineered it into a true 32-bit Windows GUI with true Windows objects. The result, the user interfaces with the screen in a manner consistent with what a Windows user expects - because it is Windows. Let me emphasize that this is not a trivial point.

Within weeks our applications were deployed through a Windows GUI with 3D fonts and fields, mouse navigation, point and click, drop down lists and push buttons; all in real time. At no time were we required to modify our programming logic or change the server. WinFAST™ was configured once, and installed on the client PC only. More importantly, because it is true Windows, features like on-line help, integration into the MS desktop, (e.g. Access Report Writer), image and sound support, HTML capability, and the like, were then incorporated as extensions to our original character-based applications.

As a result, we not only regained our position as a market leader, but derived significant revenues in upgrading our all to eager clients. The ability to transform our applications in such an abbreviated time frame, was also attributed to a highly responsive support staff that frequently cited that their success was measured by way of our success. And you don't need to be a genius to figure out that's a winning formula.
