Nys's team turned to New Venture Software, a partner of Telerik, a Progress company, who works with companies to maximize use of Telerik products.
“New Venture Software recommended we use Telerik UI for WPF to build the new product, because it provides a built-in barcode module that’s robust and easy to use,” said Nys. Barcodes are an essential component of industry labels. “As we got into the solution, it opened up a number of other possibilities for the product, and we realized how much time we’d save using Telerik rather than trying to create the solution ourselves.”
Nys’s team is using numerous additional controls, including the Tile List, Ribbon View, Diagram, Breadcrumb, Color Picker, Numeric UpDown, Watermark Text Box, Busy Indicator and Uniform Grid.
According to Nys, using Telerik® UI for WPF controls is straightforward and intuitive. “New Venture Software knows how to leverage key capabilities in the Telerik product to make our solution as user-friendly as possible,” he said.
Deployment took roughly 18 months and the solution is currently being used by roughly 99 percent of Creative Safety Supply’s LabelTac customers on both desktops and laptops. “We continue to make improvements to the product,” said Nys. “Telerik technology enables our developers to make incremental changes, so there’s no delay in providing users new functionality as it’s created.”
“Telerik provided ample support, and prompt answers to New Venture Software’s educated questions,” said Nys, who added that developers also relied on Telerik documentation, when needed.
