HCL Global Systems Inc. has many years of experience delivering the following types of Custom Development initiatives:
Windows Application Development
While the number of software applications produced in a web-based model continues to increase, there are still many situations in which the business requirements call for a traditional Windows application. A Windows software application executes on the user's PC and typically involves a rich user experience that includes robust mouse and keyboard interaction, very quick response times to user actions, detailed control over printing, and a common Windows user interface.
Web Application Development
The majority of custom software applications being created today leverage a web-based development and distribution model. As internet and web browser technology evolved over the past decade, it became feasible to deliver highly functional business applications via the web. Gone are the days of having to distribute software applications on CD's which must be installed by the user on their PC.
A common problem to website management has historically been that technical personnel are often required to maintain, update, and extend websites. A majority of the websites in existence today are essentially providing sales and marketing function by conveying a company's products, services, and core value proposition to the market. Although the content on this type of website is driven by the marketing department, it is often a difficult for marketing personnel to get changes made to the site. HCL Global Systems Inc. designed and developed a website Content Management System that allows non-technical personnel to fully manage, maintain, and extend websites.
An increasing number of traditional brick-and-mortar businesses are looking to the Internet as an additional sales channel. These traditional business are usually lack the depth and breadth of expertise required to bring a viable web-based offering to the market. HCL Global Systems Inc. has helped many companies design and develop highly scalable online storefront websites that integrate tightly with existing back-end systems and enterprise applications.
