TMA Software Announces Switch to Servoy Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) for CMMS

TMA Software Announces Switch to Servoy Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) for CMMS

TULSA, OK -- (MARKET WIRE) -- 04/01/08 -- TMA Systems announces today at their annual conference their strategic decision to switch to Servoy as the primary platform for their software product. In a keynote speech John C. Smith, CEO, details the reasons why his firm has chosen Servoy's ultra-thin client deployment platform as the future for TMA Systems. Along with Smith, Managing Director of Servoy USA, Bob Cusick, will take the stage to explain how Servoy entered into a long-term partnership with TMA Systems in a unique "ISV Assurance" program to insure that TMA is successful in this critical transition.

Why Servoy? Smith outlines that his clients are demanding software that can be accessed via the web on any browser. Additionally, Servoy is standards based (Java/JavaScript/XML) and deploys on all modern operating systems (Windows/Mac/Linux/Solaris) -- meeting TMA's diverse customers needs. TMA also found that Servoy was 2 to 5 times faster to develop in than .NET or straight Java. "We found after extensive research and trial & error, that it was best for us to partner with a growing company (Servoy) that was willing to enter into a contract with us to ensure our conversion success." Servoy's zero-deployment environment was also a key selling feature. "With Servoy, customers will not have to visit each and every machine for initial installations and maintenance releases. Servoy runs off an application server -- so it rolls out (or back) remotely. This also sets us up to offer Software as a Service (SaaS) in the future."

Cusick will take center stage to demonstrate Servoy's capabilities to the crowd of over 500 attendees. "Servoy will allow TMA end users to create and add their own reports to the report manager -- a feature highly requested in the past." Also, because Servoy can connect to any SQL (or multiple SQL) databases at the same time -- end users will be able to access more data and turn it into reports that meet their specific needs. "Servoy offers advanced User Interface (UI) options that allows the end-user to open multiple windows, type-ahead (guess-for-you) fields and movable column headers," according to Cusick.

Additionally, Servoy is the only cross-platform environment to offer data broadcasting -- meaning if one user changes his/her data and a different user is viewing that same data, the both users will see the change in real time. Servoy pushes the changes out to all clients. "We are very happy with our long-term agreement to assist TMA's development team in their switch to Servoy. Our developers have been literally working side-by-side with TMA's excellent staff to make sure we help them hit deadlines and stay within budget. We are excited to be partners with such a world-class operation," said Cusick.

For more than twenty years, TMA Systems has been recognized as a world-class provider of advanced Computerized Maintenance Management Systems - (CMMS). These software solutions are for organizations that want to effectively manage their assets and streamline their maintenance operations. They count among their customers 1,300 organizations who maintain more than 37,000 facilities, representing 2.5 billion square feet of property, including American Airlines, Cirque de Soleil, and The Mayo Clinic.
