Cloud Computing

Cloud computing is one of the fastest growing areas in business as more and more companies realise the benefits of accessing data on-line without the expense and hassle of installing and maintaining a server and local PCs. Application updates are easy as there is only 1 "cloud" server application to consider. Costs are on a monthly basis so planning is easier. You can feel confident with the cloud as you have:

Active Studio

Mobile Development Suite

Active Studio is designed for programmers and non-programmers alike.

With an easy to use development environment that gives the designer a fully functional simulator that looks and acts like the actual device.

The concept behind Blueprint is the creation of application workflows using flowcharting, these workflows are then used by either Blueprint Mobile or Desktop, where they generate and control the user interface. The use of workflows reduces development and testing time. This use of workflow documents allows for the migration to other devices and operating systems.

The data collected is stored in a results table, using a predefined set of fields. The data collected can be reported on directly with Blueprint or extracted for other systems to use.

The built-in report designer can be used to generate complete reports straight into PDF.

Off-The Shelf Software

Our software partner Trakware Solutions (TWS) has numerous off-the-shelf packages which can have you up and running very quickly, some examples are:


MCL have now released version 4 of their software and are expected to announce end of life (EOL) for version 3 towards the end of 2015. With the newly developed MCL-Designer V4 customers get a more powerful and easier to use development environment while maintaining the key elements essential to MCL-Collection, including Cross-OS App development capabilities, intuitive what-you-see-is-what-you-get (WYSIWYG) visual app development and testing tools and easier integration with Back-End systems.

This does not mean that version 3 will no longer work, it simply means that they will no longer provide any support for any issues that follow EOL.

Version 4 is a Web based application that can be run out-with Web access, but with limited functionality. (Call us for details).

With the full Web package the customer is allocated a secure Web account. Within this account an administrator would set up sites, devices, users and device programs. The account is based on the number of device licenses purchased. These licenses can be split between the sites and the devices allocated to that site. Should a device be withdrawn from service the license is re-useable and can be easily re-allocated to a new device.  Device programs can be allocated to a particular device or a group of devices and can be scheduled for installation to the devices.

The devices must have Internet access for two reasons, one is that they are updated from the web site as and when required and two they contact the web site periodically to check that they are still activated and licensed to run.

Version 4 of MCL-Net is run on a local PC as with version 3.
