Mobile (Lite) version for Alpha ERP

2 comments

Hello,

 

I remember you were planning to release a mobile version (lite) of Alpha ERP earlier. Is it still in your plan or dumped it. My hope is still there for one.

Hi BKR,

one of the reasons we have not yet released a plan for a mobile version, is that we hoped a 3rd party would step in and announce this module.

From the beginning, we wanted to have a strong 3rd party developer community, so we tried to "stay away" from some modules, like mobile or HRM or Fleet Management.

We even "silently" added Business Processes and Data modules for Fleet management, to help "speed" things up.

A year after the introduction of the project and more than 200 WX developers using it, it seems that we where probably wrong.

WX developers are targeting their OWN end users, using the alpha360 projects to develop complete applications for their customers and do NOT want (or don't have the time) to sell to other developers.

They are getting a lot more money from their customers than they would from a "rather small" community, like WX developers - and I understand them.

We are going to give another try to the 3rd party concept, with the introduction of Resellers in different areas around the world. They will take care of local needs (programming, support, translation etc) and help the project reach even NON WX developers.

 

Of course, our previous aggressive pricing, will now end.

It has reached it's limits and it really "underestimates" the product - and of course Resellers or 3rd party developers don't like it :)

 

If anyone is interested in becoming a Reseller, please email us - we still have some areas around the world open for Resellers.

Steven Sitas,

 

Catering end-users and other developers are two different areas which requires different skill set and mind set. And it's not every ones' cake.

    Hello, It would be great to have a complete comparison chart showing as to what is available in which version of alphi360. Where can we find this comparison? Yogi Yang

    Hello, This is just a suggestion to build two Procudures/Functions that would allow a user to read a value from one single field and write/update value one single field. Where it can be useful. For example when a user is creating an invoice and the user selects a product/item and we need to fetch its price (only nothing else) from another table generally will have to create a query for this particular operation or write a set of hreadseek, etc. Instead of that it would be better to call a procedure that would fetch the required value from any table thrown to it. According to me the parameters of such a Procedure/Function would be for example: GetAnyFieldValue(sTableName is String, sFieldName is String, sWhereClause is String) Here one has to give name of table from which data has to be fetched and field name whose value needs to be fetched and the where clause is just that the criteria according to which data is fetched. One condition here should that the where clause should only return one single record but if the number of records returned are more than one we have to fetch the value from the first row and return it, ignoring the rest. Again just my thoughts.... Yogi Yang

    Hello, I have watched all your videos but I am specifically writing here regarding this video: https://sites.google.com/computerplus.gr/alpha360erp-wx/windev-implementation/elements-of-the-ui-win In this video I observed that every time we assign Window/Form names to the Dynamic structure we tend to write the name of Internal Window as string. Instead of that can't we use Window's name followed by ..Name. Like for example: IWB_Asset..Name. Coding like this has its advantages. One is that if for any reason we need to rename a window (for any of the million reasons) all that we have to do is rename the window and immediately the Refraction feature of WD will kick in and offer to rename all occurrences in code with the new name. Otherwise what we have to do is find each occurrence and replace it manually. Just my thoughts. Yogi Yang
