Let VFP work while you sleep.
 

Every morning when you arrive at the office, do you regularly spend the first hour or more manually downloading files from your corporate mainframe, then importing them and/or running reports?

Why not let FoxPro perform these tasks for you?

Even if there are exceptions to the rules, our VFP developers can often automate any/all of the following:

  • - Download files from mainframes or FTP servers.
  • - Import files in a variety of formats, whether CSV, XLS, SDF, TXT or ANSI X12.
  • - Run batched reports, printing them to whatever printer is closest to the intended recipients.
  • - Upload current data to your corporate website.
  • - Query external websites, then consolidate the results into Excel spreadsheets.
  • - Send email blasts to new customers or prospects.
  • - Generate Purchase Orders in PDF format and email them to the appropriate vendors.
  • - Verify that your corporate websites are up and running.
  • - And many, many more--if you can define the process, we can probably automate it!

These processes don't have to run overnight. In fact, this type of form is designed to run 24x7. Using a FoxPro application like this one, you can manage a list of events, specifying the days of the week and/or time of day each should be run.


So what's up with the image of the heart in the middle of the form? This heart "beats", providing a visual cue that the application is running normally. (Sometimes our customers run very long and complicated processes, which take a long time to finish due to the sheer volume of data they're working with.) By instructing the heart to "thump" periodically, the software gives a visual indication that it's busy working on a task.
