OERCA

When Alpha developer Steve Workings was approached by marine mammal care and facility management company Ocean Embassy, they had been using a Microsoft Access program for their dolphin for the last three years that was clearly not up to task. They had been dreaming about what the next incarnation of this software might look like—one that incorporated mobile, robust reporting and charting, and extensive data, long-term scientific data collection—and wanted to know if Alpha could be used to develop the right solution.

Business Challenge

Marine mammal care and facility management company Ocean Embassy had been using a Microsoft Access program for their dolphin care for the last three years that was clearly not up to task. The Company approached Alpha Anywhere developer Steve Workings to help solve the problem. The team at Ocean Embassy had been dreaming about what the next incarnation of this software might look like—one that incorporated mobile, robust reporting and charting, and extensive data, long-term scientific data collection. The Company approached Alpha Anywhere developer Steve Workings to help solve the problem. They and wanted to know if Alpha Anywhere could be used to develop the right solution.

"There are just so many things you can do in Alpha with a few clicks of a button."

Solution

It turns out that the answer, in a big, big way, was "Yes!" After just six months of development, Workings had the software operating in a research and rescue operation, a small zoological facility, and its first major implementation in a large theme park.

When asked what sets Alpha Anywhere apart, lead developer Steve Workings listed the following:

  • Stability and consistent performance on the web server
  • Terrific compatibility with MS SQL
  • A bulletproof and flexible security framework
  • Rapid application development capabilities
  • Tons of built-in AJAX and Javascript
  • Opportunities everywhere for custom HTML, Javascript, CSS and Xbasic
  • Easy integration with third party software
  • The supportive community of Alpha Anywhere users

 

After just six months of development, Workings had the software operating in a research and rescue operation, a small zoological facility, and its first major implementation in a large theme park.

Results/Benefits

Using Alpha Anywhere, Workings has created what is on its way to becoming the standard software application for the marine mammal care industry. And OERCA won't be stopping at marine mammals either. It turns out that aquariums, aviaries, turtle care facilities and even most terrestrial zoos really don't have a comprehensive, all-in-one, easy-to-use, satisfactory software solution either.
