Case Study: ERP App Leverages ASP.NET And WinForms

ASP.NET Team Blog

Santiago Barro and his development team have created a powerful WinForms ERP application called BinaryActiva. Btw, that’s Santiago on the upper left:

Case Study: Binary Menorca S.L. creates powerful ERP using DevExpress

The WinForms ERP application is the main client which supports business activities like: Purchasing, Sales, Stocks, Production, CRM, HR, and more. They’ve also built an ASP.NET website that integrates with their CRM module to send SMS updates!

So why did they build both the WinForms and ASP.NET applications using their DevExpress Suite? Santiago points out:


DevExpress controls are always evolving. Using their controls in applications will always give a consistent and professional interface similar to that of any application developed by the major software development companies.


DevExpress makes the cool tools and teams like Binary Menorca use them to produce award winning applications. Sounds like a fair deal to me. Check out this photo of the guys winning the "Young Enterprise Award" in their native country of Spain. I think the guy on the right is holding a copy of DXPerience behind his back. I'm just kidding, of course, their good work earned them the awards. We're just happy that they chose DevExpress tools to help them succeed.

I decided to upgrade my main app from Classic ASP to .NET about one year ago as it became more and more inflexible. I started from the scratch - and built such a rich application I'd never been able to build without DX. Within this year my application has become thousand times better than within the 3 years of Classic ASP before... thanks to .NET, and - even more - DX :)

Just my 2 cents... :)
