Visual WebGui News
published on: 20/01/11
Instant CloudMove, new to the Visual WebGui portfolio, is an automated tool-based solution for transforming enterprise client/server applications from desktop to a Cloud/Web and mobile deployment. Leveraging Gizmox's Visual WebGui (VWG) virtualization application and streaming platform, Instant CloudMove provides a virtualized desktop application with browser accessibility with no plug-ins that maintains the same desktop-grade security, richness and performance.
VWG offers an exclusive approach to desktop application virtualization and streaming of .NET, VB6 client/server technologies. Unlike other virtualization solutions, VWG virtualizes Windows desktop applications at code level on top of standard Web server or VWG dedicated application server. This allows native HTML/HTML5-based browser accessibility anywhere, from any browser and device. VWG is also the only virtualization-based solution that enables transformation of existing application's code from unsupported legacy code to the latest .NET, while modernizing them during the process. Redcastle can do this transformation for you or teach you how to move your own applications to the Cloud. Contact us for more details.

BABTAC replace Membership system
published on: 06/01/11
Redcastle VWG Development for BABTAC
For a number of years, BABTAC, the British Association of Beauty Therapy and Cosmetology, had been using a generic system to manage all of their membership data. At the heart of this was a database which contained some 1.6Gb of information, including the details of around 22,000 members of which 9,000 were current and active. BABTAC wanted their current CRM system enhancing to make it more efficient, effective and easier to use.
Continued development process
The existing CRM based membership system used by BABTAC was unwieldy, difficult to use and prevented us from making the necessary changes quickly and easily. We therefore started the process again and decided that a new system was required.
The process continued until the system met all of BABTAC’s needs. It became fully active in August 2010 after just a few weeks of iterative Rapid Application Development (iRAD). It allows any of the associates and management team to access full member information in a matter of seconds, the new system is now less than 100Mb in size! Members can be searched for individually or by salon. Qualifications and certificates can be recorded. Renewals and reminders can be easily managed and a full payment record is quickly available for each member. BABTAC are delighted with the results.
