Choosing the Right Solution
Here are some guidelines
to use in choosing the right interface for your database:
are used mainly for fast, reliable data input in data entry systems, dirty
shop floor environments, or anywhere a mouse-driven interface would slow
down data input. The user captures the required data with a bar-code reader,
number pad, or keyboard. Screen navigation is automatically controlled
by the program. The PC can be turned off any time without damage to the
database. Boot-up is very fast; 10-15 seconds typical. MS Windows is not
required. (These programs will , however, run inside a window on a standard
are used in cleaner factory and office environments, where data input speed
is not as much of a factor. Graphical versions of our programs look and
feel just like any other Windows program. A mouse is required for screen
navigation. MS Windows is required.
Stability and Reliability:
Databases with the Non-Graphical Character Interface are more stable and
reliable. When properly designed, they will run safely in a window, because
the database does not hold files open while the user is working on the
screen. Therefore, when the Windows system freezes, (as it often does),
the database is not damaged. Only the information on the screen is lost.
Character Interface programs
do not attach themselves to your Windows operating system. They can be
removed by simply erasing the files. No "Uninstall" is necessary.
programs are much larger, and are available only on Compact Disk (CD).
These programs must be "Uninstalled" from the Windows operating system
to remove them.
