The “Wow” Moment When Using Cincom Smalltalk
A “wow” moment occurs when you exceed your customer and partner’s expectations. For Cincom Smalltalk, these are the “wow” moments that we have seen in our customers and partners time and time again:
- Speed of development
- Flexibility and adaptability of the developed software
- The ability to model complex systems more simply than with other systems
Today, let’s look at the speed at which our customers and partners develop using Cincom Smalltalk.
Speed of Development Using Cincom Smalltalk
It has been a constant anecdotal refrain that Smalltalk is around two to three times more productive in producing working features than languages such as Java and C#.
We put this down to a tightly integrated development toolset that sits on top of an image. Your image is a read-write application that allows you to make changes to the running code quickly and simply. Errors can be debugged in the running code as you write it.
With our extensive frameworks covering a wide range of functionality, our friendly support staff, and a product that continues to stretch the boundaries of software development, we hope that you too will become an enthusiastic user of the power of Smalltalk.
It is the original home of Extreme Programming and continues to support the inherent practices of XP. Kent Beck tweeted:
after two intense weeks in smalltalk i’m dreading going back to other languages

Kent doubled down years later with another comment:
@emaringolo even more so. i have trouble memorizing details of new languages but i remember smalltalk just fine.

In the words of some of our customers …
With such a high productivity factor that Smalltalk gives us, reaction times to market changes have enabled us to beat most of our competitors. We have estimated that if we had built Kapital in another language such as Java, we would require at least three times the amount of resources.
In our company, technological understanding meets creative and innovative software development. Our early decision for object-oriented technologies pays off. For several years, we have been growing faster than the market. Cincom Smalltalk is and will remain our central development environment in the near future.

Buy Cincom Smalltalk ─ The PUL program has been very successful over the years. During that time, we’ve often been asked for an option between the PUL and full product licensing. Tom Nies, the Founder, Chairman and CEO of Cincom Systems, Inc., challenged the Cincom Smalltalk Product Team to come up with an offering that would answer this request, and our team delivered the REV Program.
The REV program is a bridge between the free evaluation of the PUL and full licensing. It allows for easy entry into the Cincom platform, providing both the full product (the current release of Cincom Smalltalk Version 9) and full support for a 1-year/12-month time period. REV Program participants also have access to Cincom marketing and branding through the Cincom Smalltalk Partner Promotion Program that can help with the kickoff of the application or business.
We’ve seen many REV members successfully move from the REV Program to full licensing even before their 12-month cycle is complete. Listen as Suzanne discusses the REV Program and the benefits a user receives by becoming a partner with Cincom here.
We launched the REV Program with introductory pricing of $500, and it exceeded our expectations! Now the program is at the regular, full price of $1,000. We are offering a 25% discount off the full price of the REV Program. If you would like this deal, please email the Cincom Smalltalk Product Team to get the link and discount code worth $250.
