VISCO was developed
using the Microsoft .NET® technology. This use of Web-based
technology allows users to process back-office functions from anywhere
in the world with nothing more than a web browser and an Internet
connection. Traditionally, in a client server environment, remote
access to back office applications was only possible with expensive
private lines or slow dial-up services.
For companies with current systems in place, using .NET to develop VISCO makes integration with
these systems much easier because of the common language interfaces available from Microsoft. Your
company’s current Accounting, CRM, and other division-specific applications will have the ability to merge
with VIS easily, as .NET gives our customization specialists the ability to develop interfaces written in a
language that both applications understand.
The application was developed using a three-tier technology: ASP.NET,
Visual Basic.NET, and SQL Server 2000 as the database.
