FoxPro to Servoy Success Story: Webinar with Jeroen de Vries, CEO of Softwear – April 21

Join this interactive discussion and find out why Softwear, along with many other former Visual FoxPro ISVs and software companies, decided to migrate to Servoy.

Softwear is a Dutch ISV in the fashion retail and wholesale automation industry. They had a scalability problem with their previous SaaS solution, so they replaced their traditional terminal server technology with Servoy web and smart-client technology. By re-designing their applications, they reduced their total carbon footprint by 90%. Servoy has enabled them to redesign their software and development platform to minimize power consumption both from an economic, as well as an environmental point of view.
Jeroen de Vries, Softwear CEO, and Servoy, will answer all your questions.
