"As an e-commerce and Linux consultant, I must consistently create custom interfaces to help customers manage their data-driven Websites. Usually, we choose to create custom software within PHP. However, with the Omnis Studio RAD tool, we can quickly develop a product that can run on Windows, Linux, or Mac OS with a consistent look and feel. Such a product could easily allow us to branch into other areas of data management."

"I have always considered programming to be one of my secondary skills. I use PHP to create dynamic Websites, or Perl to query a database and convert the results to SGML, and at one time I was a competent C programmer. I have long since given it up for more "functional" languages, though. After reviewing Omnis's Website and product literature, I thought Omnis Studio might be worthy of a review."

"Acquiring the software was very simple. I called a product manager, asked him about the product, and received it the next day via Federal Express. This was a big plus -- even in the dot-com era, we should still be able to contact a real person who is willing to help."
