In today’s fast moving world, reliable and user friendly “staff to staff” and “staff to customer” communication paths are key. Australia’s Brighton Technologies Group (BTG) is a leading provider for guest and staff paging solutions, real-time location and tracking, as well as various forms of wireless communication systems. Thanks to Wisej.NET, they’ve turned a logistical nightmare into a robust solution that’s easy to deploy.
Before deciding to use Wisej.NET, the team at BTG looked into different options for web migration. They wanted to build upon their existing programming experience from Windows desktop applications. Initial steps were done with Visual Web GUI (VWG), which was soon found to be taken off the market. The next major focus was Microsoft’s ASP.NET, but “the learning curve of MVC (when coming from a desktop background) was quite steep and it took us almost 9 months to bring one of our products into the release phase”. The team was rather disappointed as this timeline didn’t provide a competitive option for web-enabling the rest of BTG’s products. Daniel Kelly: “We decided to look at Wisej.NET and realized that it was commercially ready and also had a very easy upgrade path from VWG or Windows Desktop applications.”. As a proof of concept, the team converted the ASP.NET MVC application to Wisej.NET and it took less than one month to have the solution release-ready – a factor of 10x faster compared to the previous approach!
The fast pace of development is one thing, but having access to good guidance and support is another important criteria for Daniel Kelly when evaluating technology: “The support system being offered (even the free forum) is second to none. We use a lot of third party components such as DevExpress, Syncfusion and Rebex and whilst they all offer good support options, the team at Ice Tea Group always just seem to go above and beyond with any issues.”.
Based on their experience with Wisej.NET, the team mentioned that you don’t have to be a web expert to develop robust and very stylish applications with Wisej.NET.
Daniel adds: “I would also highly recommend any businesses to take up the additional support options as the team really do go above and beyond in answering any queries and providing feedback.”.
