What Is the Advantage of Using Cincom Smalltalk?

Smalltalk reduces the complexity that complicates software development while accelerating your potential for profitable growth in each type of software development.

This simple development tool assists you in creating value with the least amount of risk and the quickest return on investment.

“Simply possible. Cincom Smalltalk makes the hard things easy and the impossible, possible.” – Arden Thomas, Cincom Smalltalk Product Manager

Creating systems for internal clients can be a difficult task. New systems must bridge practices and data structures from previous eras as they are built on decades of applications and a variety of technologies. Furthermore, they must be web-accessible.

Cincom Smalltalk streamlines development, ensuring that new or integrated applications for internal clients provide value and a return on investment at a low cost and risk to you. Cincom’s Smalltalk implementation makes no concessions. You concentrate on the business processes you want to automate rather than the code you’re writing. Your application reflects your professional expertise rather than just your coding and debugging abilities, and you create a higher quality, higher value application.

The total cost of ownership exceeds the license fees. You save money when you can create applications with little or no support, when they can be easily applied across multiple platforms, and when you can write them quickly. Your expenses are lower than those of other application tools. If you can save time and money developing applications because the tool is easier to use, your ROI will rise. How much more will your ROI improve if you can integrate systems and data more quickly?
