  • Includes step by step instructions for master file maintenance and transaction entry in several layouts including "full-screen entry"
  • Easy to infer (by developers) IBM i textual UI layouts that are most amenable to dynamic transformation out of the box (so no form-level customization or even extraction steps required!)
  • Underlying PDF source documents (FrameMaker) available by verbal request

  • Repository Contents

  • Base rules for transformation to typographic fonts by data element class

  • Includes form-specific rules and global GUI rules for 3 enterprise accounting applications

  • go over the internet with or without VPN
  • slow internet at some user's houses?  No problem!  Lightweight bandwidth requirements...
  • no elevated authority requirements for the user - admin (or power user) credentials not required at run time
  • does require a firewall static IP and port map at corporate
  • retain textual UI visual cues and interaction shortcuts for experienced workers while adding intuitive recognition GUI elements for younger workers and new hires

  • function keys work via key press or button click
  • equivalent keyboard and mouse actions avoid introducing more keyboard to mouse and back hand movements
  • allow workers to retain their keyboard versus mouse preferences - not every department will gain productivity by revolving everything around a mouse click, so no need to force an unproductive change
  • retain the speedy nature of the thin client / textual UI without requiring high-speed internet

Subscription to FP Tutorial Environment(s) Available Separately  (Show Expanded Details...)   
  • Financial Portrait User Tutorial environments offer these benefits and features:

  • Step by step hands-on training on an enterprise level accounting package
  • Separate and complete programs and database enviroment to do as you wish (refreshable for do overs)
  • Evaluation of the Financial Portrait solution on IBM i with minimal investment (and without requiring install of package on local or cloud IBM i server)
  • A case study for application developers and designers to review in advance of developing their own repository or leading their own UI modernization or refactoring project

  • Develop your own custom repository in short order
       using your internal App Dev staff

  • use our repository as a base or as a template during your Newlook Developer trial period and later in your production version

  • take advantage of introductory pricing for the fps smartclient 10.7 CD and custom repository - only $495 per corporate entitity regardless of user count or IBM i processor tier

  • start phase I with only the essence - try out your best global level transformation rules before any form level overrides - prioritize form level overrides in applications needed by remote workers first

  • keep in mind - even with dynamic transformation to typographic fonts and proportional spacing, most mono-spaced alignments are recognized automatically!

  • customizing at the form level is OK but best to minimize in Phase I - even though many changes can still be made to the host version of the screen that won't affect the form-level customization

  • up to 4 fifteen minute phone consultations (within 6 month time frame) from our experts included in the $495 introductory price

  • if App Dev resources are tight, consider QA or Business Analysts personnel for helping identify forms in need of customization

Licensing Terms   (Show Expanded Details...)   
  • This is a license to all of the scripts and presentation layer customization techniques included within the FPS repository, and includes the authorization to make derivative works. 

  • The license goes to the individual doing the purchasing and his/her choice of one end-user company only.  Software service providers, education organizations and ISV(s) are not eligible as end-user company types. 

  • You must tell us the name of the end-user company chosen.

  • Each license is available for broad use by developers and contractors working for the end-user company chosen, for developing and distribution to end-users within the chosen single end-user company. 

  • The license time frame is 4 years.  After 4 years, we may require you to renew the license or indicate you are no longer using any scripts without significant modification.

  • Copying and/or distribution of Financial Portrait forms or data layouts that are obviously proprietary is not a part of this license.  However, you will be able to see all of the forms and their general sequence within our tutorials because we have included them to help you with your work.  What may be interesting is to see the many forms that have no custom overlay (there is only a generic overlay in place for the heading area). 

  • The license includes rights to make derivative works to the scripts, provided existing copyright statements are included in copied or derivative code until at such point the new work is over 50% different than the original version provided and there are new elements of creativity and uniqueness (basically the standard minimum software copyright guidelines for claiming rights and avoiding copyright infringement).

  • Software service providers, education organizations and ISV(s), please contact us.

  • We can sign a license agreement with you if you wish.
