First of all, and most importantly, the NEW TRAVERSE is easier to personalize/customize, by the user and for each user according to what they want to do. We’re not just talking favorites here, that’s only the tip of the iceberg. You can add custom fields, rearrange screens, and many more things are able to be done by YOU, the user! All this without programming
expertise and without having to worry about ripple effects in the
module you are in or other modules. And, what’s most impressive is that all of these changes sit on top, not within the standard TRAVERSE
What this means is that when a new version or a bug fix
update is released, you just add that new version and all of your personal design changes remain intact! This is a result of the new technology on which TRAVERSE 11 is built.
Once you see the
capabilities of this new version of TRAVERSE, you can’t help but be
impressed. This is a
totally redesigned 100% .Net SQL version of TRAVERSE, compared to other software
packages that are being updated with a .Net
wrapper software, not nearly as functional for users.
TRAVERSE 11 is the genuine thing. Once a user creates his or her own personalized screen and reports, he or she then can have it just for the current session or save it either for personal and/or public use and it’s stored outside the basic TRAVERSE system so that when the upgrades come, nothing will be touched, instead, the personalization just rolls along just as before.
This is just a small taste of what the new Traverse can do and be. It will have all of the great features you are used to and a whole lot more.
So much more, in fact, that we were required to be certified to customize it beyond what you can do as an end user with the available tools that are included.
What we have described so far is one of four new main
features in TRAVERSE 11 called Personalize
Next is the Design part. Use the
Design Studio to add custom fields, change the layout of forms, and build import and export
integration to other software or automation equipment that you may use. Again, programming not necessary.
The third part is called Integrate. Use the TRAVERSE Integration Engine, a set of data mapping and scheduling tools included in the TRAVERSE Design Studio, to
integrate your Web store, trading partner, or other
proprietary or third-party application data with
TRAVERSE. Using these integration tools ensures that data coming into TRAVERSE from these systems is passed through the same validations and business rules as data you enter in TRAVERSE.
Lastly, Customize. TRAVERSE is built on a complete framework designed to help us customize TRAVERSE applications to fit your needs. And just as in TRAVERSE itself, an extension or custom application you build on the TRAVERSE framework automatically inherits
TRAVERSE’s adaptability through the other layers.
In coming issues we will elaborate.
