We appreciate how they quickly prioritize the problems we are having and the timely manner in which they are resolved. Allegro is always doing what they can to keep us functioning at the highest level possible and the quality of their work is to be highly commended."

Keep Symix and Progress Running Smoothly

The Symix package is well tailored for manufacturers covering planning, production, inventory, purchasing, accounting, distribution and more. This vertical market package works so well that many companies in both discrete and process manufacturing are still using it today, decades after the last update.

Symix 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 manufacturers 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 tailor your Symix system, extend its functionality to the web, and keep your database running smoothly with no unexpected downtime. Our team can also deliver professional Symix programmers for projects, as well Symix training for your own staff.

Expert services for your Symix system:

Allegro provides Symix database support

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.

Symix database maintenance

Database maintenance
The Progress database that runs 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 a dump-and-load, tune Symix to make it go faster, and perform a health check.

Migrate Symix systems with Allegro's support

Migrate and upgrade
All servers eventually get to be too slow and need to be upgraded. We can help you select the right server, plan for a smooth migrate, take care of all the difficult details when moving to more powerful hardware, upgrading Windows or migrating to Linux or VMWare.

Integrate SyteLine with other software and ODBC access

Integration
We can connect your Symix system to applications handling customer relationship management (CRM), website content (CMS), or business operations (ERP). We can also install ODBC so you can reach your data from any application. Sharing data with accounting, controlling equipment with real time data from Symix and making a single, connected system can be the competitive advantage you need.

Custom Symix screens and reports

Customization
When you need another screen to get just the right information all in one place, when you need a little more functionality added to your system or when you need additional reports that do not exist in the current system, Allegro can customize and extend Symix to meet your exact needs.

Get enhanced new Symix screens

Web screens and frontends
Your daily production schedule and other critical processes may need special screens created so everything is on one page. We can add screens to Symix to give many users a web page where they can "see" what is happening.

Customize your Symix ERP reports

Reports
You need reports that go beyond what is available in Symix. Allegro's programmers know which table and fields are required and we can put exactly the information you need on custom reports available within your existing Symix system.

Allegro's trained Symix staff

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

Symix trainers and mentors from Allegro

Train and mentor
It is often difficult to find classes and books on technology underneath Symix, Progress OpenEdge. Even when you do, the travel costs and time away from the office are often too much to bear. When you need training or mentoring in programming or database administration, we have the custom, on-site training and mentoring that fits your schedule and needs.
