Featuring the UltPlus MultiValue Database
Operating Systems Support (OSS) provides systems, service, support and
licensing to users of the
UltPlus database management system. Since
inception in 1989 and subsequent acquisition of all rights, title and
interest to the UltPlus database management system in 1997, OSS has been
developing, enhancing and modifying the product to be a leading edge suite
of software applications.
UltPlus runs on all major UNIX based platforms such as AIX and HPUX. We have
also ported the database to
Intel enterprise servers, having sold and maintained
over 200 systems on that platform alone.
Migration to an Intel platform provides many benefits:
|Users are no longer captured in a proprietary manufacturer’s system|
|Equipment can be purchased anywhere|
|The speed of the system has been greatly enhanced|
|The Intel platform can support up to 500 users without performance
OSS understands the
need for web based seamless integration between our customers’ business
applications and the Internet. We have developed Web-enabling products such as
Ulti-Connect, which provides an XML transport into the UltPlus environment. This
XML interface is adaptable to any web client software to communicate freely over
OSS’ newest enhancement is called Platform File. Platform File has many uses:
It is an excellent disaster recovery solution.
Enables seamless communication with a web server
Allows UltPlus to access Windows based files from within
With Platform File a data warehouse strategy can be
employed using a
second system as your repository.
All development work can be performed on the second
system without any
interference to the mission critical system.
Vertical Applications for the Auto Warehouse Aftermarket
In 1999, OSS entered into the auto warehouse distribution aftermarket featuring
EPIC (Electronic Parts Integrated Catalog).
Up until that time, OSS authorized the Triad Corporation to provide solutions to
this community of end-users, which includes the UltPlus database and an
application known as AutoShims.
EPIC was developed in
conjunction with Wrenchead, who provides the auto parts data for the EPIC
catalog program through its Profit Pro division. Profit Pro revolutionized
the catalog business by breaking away from archaic and expensive manual entry
systems to electronic data transfer.
OSS has earned the business of many warehouse distributors
such as Trak Auto, a 250 store chain, who
run their entire operation on the OSS solution. Through a basic file save
and restore routine, they upgraded and enhanced their database to a modern
state-of-the-art product, with features like On-line Database Connectivity
(ODBC) and Internet integration. In addition, WD's have the
flexibility to operate their entire enterprise on any platform from Intel
Pentium class systems to IBM RISC servers.
For those customers who are currently obtaining their support from Wang, OSS
offers tremendous incentives to switch to OSS. As an OSS customer you will
receive the latest release of the UltPlus management system including all of the
enhancements, modifications, bug fixes, etc. which have been released since
1997. The system can be loaded onto your current hardware platform through a
file save and restore.
OSS maintains over 400 companies throughout the United States, Canada, England,
Israel, Taiwan and Australia. Our customer list includes: Blue Cross and Blue
Shield, Corporate Express, The United States Navy, The National Gallery of Art
and The Canadian Ministry of Tourism.
