We develop and distribute a production control application for pharmaceutical, cosmetic and food industries compliant to GMP and FDA regulation. We needed to convert this application from RM Cobol to Visual Cobol aiming to get a remarkable improvement of the user interface while retaining all the data processing functions (almost 70% of the entire application). The solution suggested by GoodWorks was to use a Java-based GUI while preserving in Visual Cobol all the data processing logic. We'd like to thank GoodWorks both for the effective solution suggested and for the consultancy and support they provided us during the critical phases of the conversion project. They proved to be responsive and highly experienced in solving each problem we presented to them. This collaboration was very profitable for us. We hope to continue for long time to work with GoodWorks.
