"Allegro listened to me and gave me the solution that met my needs rather than forcing me onto another product. Staying with the product that I was comfortable with and fit my needs has helped me to maintain my independence and ensure the security of my website. They helped me to migrate to a more robust, stable and secure server and implemented reliable backups.'"

Keep Operating Smoothly with WDS-II Support

WDS-II was well tailored for distributors with order entry, purchasing, demand forecasting, picking, inventory, and accounting functions. This vertical market package works so well that many warehouse and distribution companies are still using it today, decades after the last update.

WDS-II 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 distributors 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 customize or integrate your WDS-II system, extend its functionality to the web, and keep your database running smoothly with no unexpected downtime.

Ensure your WDS2 system runs smoothly with Allegro's expertise.

Allegro's wds-ii database support and recovery

Support and recovery
Allegro delivers the support you cannot find anywhere else and answers your Progress database, Unix, and network questions. The team provides the Progress-savvy troubleshooting, backup and recovery, and maintenance to solve problems and keep your system running with no surprise downtime.

Allegro's WDS2 database maintenance

Database maintenance
The Progress database running 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 dump and loads, tune WDS 2 to go faster and perform a health check.

Migrate to Linux or VMware

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.

WDS2 integration with other software

Integration
We can connect your WDS 2 system to other software applications and install ODBC so you can reach your data from any application. Sharing data with accounting, controlling equipment with real time data from WDS-II and making a single, connected system can be the competitive advantage you need.

Custom screens and functionality for DSM WDS 2

Customization
When you need another screen to get just the right information all in one place, a little more functionality, or additional reports, rely on Allegro to customize and extend wds-ii to meet your exact needs.

Improved, enhanced and new screens for DSM WDS 2

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 WDS-II to give many users a web page where they can "see" what is happening.

Custom reports for WDS2

Reports
You need reports that go beyond what is available in WDS2. 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 WDS2 system.

Trained, professional WDS 2 staff

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

Allegro brings WD2 training to you

Train and mentor
It is often difficult to find classes and books on the Progress OpenEdge technology, which lies underneath WDS-II. 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, Allegro has the custom, on-site training and mentoring that fits your schedule and needs.
