Software can be written for virtually any purpose. The applications written by TruckleSoft are developed using:

  • Microsoft Visual Studio Visual C++
  • Microsoft Visual Studio Visual C#
  • Microsoft Visual Studio Visual Basic

These applications undergo rigorous debugging to ensure the applications are stable and efficient. And we work closely with you so that they function as needed.

These programming languages are extremely versatile and allow you to design software with a Graphical User Interface. We have in the past also used Visual C++ to design add-ins for other applications like Microsoft Outlook.

Can your working practices be reviewed? Because implementing custom software applications can:

  • Simplify your working method statements.
  • Improve product quality.
  • Reduce work time scales? 

The power made available with custom software applications simply cannot be given justice here!


Standalone Applications

These applications may contain a simple user interface as the front end, but behind the scenes they can perform extremely complex and repetitive tasks, saving a company time and money.  Such applications also improve product quality and the working experience for users.

For example, here is a screenshot of an application called Import Text. It is designed to read in a data file (like a CSV file) and then create a AutoCAD DXF file using the settings you provide (click to enlarge):

Add-ins for Other Applications

Many applications on the market allow you to extend their capabilities via plug-ins (also known as add-ins). For example, this is a Microsoft Outlook add-in that presents the user with a dialogue and based on chosen settings reads data from an associated Microsoft Access Database into the Outlook Calendar or Contacts (click to enlarge):

Such utilities are very useful because they allow you to duplicate data without user input, thus avoiding user input error.  Also, once data is held within Microsoft Outlook in can be synchronised to hand-held devices.
