More than 150 pharmacies and 3,000 hospitals and clinics in more than four countries trust ec2Software Solutions to deliver sophisticated and reliable technology. The company is driven by high regulatory pressures to develop products that meet precise technical and reliability metrics, while competitive forces require it to regularly and quickly deliver updates for flagship products, including mobile and cloud-based versions. For developers, creating software for this industry is a daunting task, especially with a small team.
ec2Software Solutions selected C++Builder for its ease-of-use, power and performance, and also maturity of the visual library. According to ec2Software, C++Builder requires fewer resources to maintain and support the library. With this tool in place, several new ec2Software solutions were adapted in record time and with half the number of developers typically required, compared to similar, previous development efforts.
"You don't have to worry about the front end, that's one of the main reasons we went with C++Builder to begin with - it's hands down the best development environment for us," said Brett Whittacre, senior vice president R&D and co-founder of ec2Software Solutions. "With six developers, we were able to out produce what a team of 15 could do and bring some phenomenal new programs to the market."
ec2Software Solutions uses RAD Studio for its move to mobile applications. The company is the only player in its industry able to offer cross-platform solutions today - Windows, Mac and iOS - removing significant adoption barriers. RAD Studio enables thespecialty software providerto achieve extreme agility, while following a waterfall requirement and development process which is important as all product features are specified upfront for regulatory scrutiny.
"With RAD Studio, ec2Software Solutions is able to quickly build mockups of their work, which helps to streamline the overall development process. With any other environment, this wouldn't be possible," said Michael Swindell, senior vice-president of products for Embarcadero Technologies. "Using our market-leading cross-platform application development tools, companies such as ec2Software Solutions are delivering top-notch products to their customers, all while staying competitive and taking their products to new levels and have happy customers to boot. We see this as a win-win for everyone."
