MicroMac have many years' experience in writing custom computer systems,
and are able to apply this experience in the design and development of
browser-based applications for the internet and intranets.
MicroMac have written a wide range of bespoke systems for both
manufacturing and service industries, from simple systems based on third
party components and scripting languages, to machine control programs
that address the lowest level computing processes. We have written
systems for individuals and small companies, as well as systems
for large organisations, like BP and BAE Systems.
These systems have been developed using a variety of programming languages,
including C, Assembly language and Visual Basic. More recent systems
have been developed using C#, the new Microsoft language designed
specifically for the .NET Framework .
Historically, the choice
of language has been dictated by the requirements of the job, but with
its massive Class library and Common Type System, the .NET Framework
treats all of the supported .NET lanaguages in a consistent way.
MicroMac's Repair and Overhual system
was developed using a combination of Visual Basic and browser-based
technologies like Active Server Pages and ActiveX documents. All current
developments use ASP.NET - the .NET Framework implementation of ASP - and
Dynamic HTML to create responsive
web-based applications which require no client software other than Internet
Explorer. These systems require less maintenance cost than traditional
desktop applications, and can be deployed by simply publishing a link
from an internal web site to the application URL.
MicroMac have substantial experience in using relational databases. As an
Oracle Partner, we have built our major systems over the last two
years using Oracle. However, MicroMac also have experience of SQL
Server, Informix, Access, Paradox, Dbase, Foxbase, and low-level
ISAM's including Btrieve and Codebase. We have implemented multi-user
real-time database systems, distributed database systems supporting
mobile laptop users, and database applications to support web sites
hosted by MicroMac.
