WDS-II was well tailored for distributors with order entry, purchasing, demand forecasting, picking, inventory, and accounting functions.
This vertical market package works so well that many warehouse and distribution companies are still using it today, decades after the last update. WDS-II uses the tried-and-true character user interface (green screens and dumb terminals), the ease-of-use and low cost-of-ownership of the Progress database, and the error-free-transactions of the Progress 4GL language to give distributors a powerful system that does not require a full time database administrator. When every penny saved is important, using Progress and keeping it running smoothly is a true competitive advantage in a market with narrow margins. Allegro can customize or integrate your WDS-II system, extend its functionality to the web, and keep your database running smoothly with no unexpected downtime.
Expert Services for Your WDS II System:
Support and Recovery
Allegro delivers the support you cannot find anywhere else and we answer your Progress database, Unix, and network questions. We provide the Progress-savvy troubleshooting, backup and recovery, and maintenance to solve problems and keep your system running with no surprise downtime.
The Progress database running your system doesn't need daily attention like MS SQL or Oracle, but it does need regular maintenance to keep it running smooth and avoid crashing when you run out of space or memory. Our staff take the hassle out of dump and loads, tune WDS 2 to go faster and perform a health check.
We can connect your WDS 2 system to other software applications and install ODBC so you can reach your data from any application. Sharing data with accounting, controlling equipment with real time data from WDS-II and making a single, connected system can be the competitive advantage you need.
When you need another screen to get just the right information all in one place, a little more functionality, or additional reports, rely on Allegro to customize and extend wds-ii to meet your exact needs.

Sometimes you need additional Progress-savvy, WDS-II staff to complete a project or provide coverage when someone is out on vacation. We can place temporary WDS-II programmers or DBAs on your site, work remotely from our office, or even find trained, experienced Progress and WDS-II staff for you to hire.
