Chuck Stewart, IT Manager at REOTEMP, on his experience building enterprise apps with Alpha Anywhere

I was given the task to update an Access 2000 system and add new features to it.Being a Visual FoxPro programmer, my first thought was to design a new system in Visual Fox Pro. I soon realized that this wouldn't work because the world is going mobile and I wanted to do a web-based application.After extensive research and testing of many development systems and languages. I found one that was perfect for the job - Alpha Anywhere! From day one, I was productive and was amazed at how fast I could create applications and be up and running with very little coding.

The more applications I created the more I realized that Alpha Anywhere was the right choice for our company.

After attending all of the courses offered by Alpha's training partner, Twin Peaks Research, , my applications have become steadily more and more sophisticated. When you add code to Alpha Anywhere there is nothing that I have found that you can’t do with it. So far I have created a robust Return System, a Quoting System, and endless management reports. I will soon be designing an order tracking system for our manufacturing floor and there is a long list of other projects that I am very confident that Alpha Anywhere will handle with ease.

In fact, since we adopted Alpha Anywhere at REOTEMP and have experienced its power and productivity, we have a backlog of applications lined up - like planes on a runway - ready to be developed quickly so that they can take flight.

Management is very pleased with how stable and functional the systems that have been built are and how quickly we have been able to get them up and running. They keep throwing curve balls at us in terms of new requirements needed in the applications, but Alpha Anywhere has been able to handle them all.

Another plus about working with Alpha Anywhere is the support and how the company handles developers. I have never seen a company respond to every email and question I have had like Alpha does, and always in a timely manner.

We just increased our commitment to Alpha Anywhere because we are convinced about the competitive advantage that Alpha Anywhere gives our company.
