First, thanks for the response and I'll try to give you an idea of where we are trying to go. We have an application that creates and tracks claim data for the behavioral health industry. The application has been used by the healthcare industry for 19 years and development has been driven by the needs of our clients. I'm not going to get into the complexities across states, institutions, clinics, therapists, etc. but suffice it to say that there are widely varying needs for our clients which currently number close to 100 including national, state and local government agencies. To track and process all the differences to the base software we have what we call the Work Order Request system. Currently this system sits across our application, our website and different business reporting packages used by our clients. We want to unify the system into a strictly web based application. Based on performance, flexibility and time to market we are also considering designing new web based modules for HR, ePrescriptions and mobile data entry (hospital, bedside, on site) of case notes. My boss who owns the company has been looking at quite a few applications and has made the decision to move to the next phase of this project by purchasing your development software. He definitely likes what he sees as this is the first package he has purchased after initial demo trials.
Back to the WOR system. The system needs to be able to allow our clients to enter requests for software modifications via a web application running on any web client including iPhone, SmartPhone and handheld devices. Next it needs to be able to report on WOR classifications, status, internal costs and billing. This is where we would like to have the docking capabilities. At any point in time we would want to have around a dozen windows containing charts with simple modification controls, looking at just one series in a data set, changing the time frame, output options, scaling of the size of the window and so on. I have a lot of this working although not completely. As part of the process we would like to be able to drag an open window to a docking area for easy quick access and to clean up the workspace, especially on mobile devices. Ultimately we would like to be able to drag charts into another window for ad-hoc reporting.
Phew, hope you're still with me. I apologize for the length of this reply but I wanted to be as complete as possible so you would understand our goal here. Feel free to contact me with any questions you may have. As I said, Telerik is the first development software that Brad has purchased so now we just need to refine what we have and show that we can use Telerik in a production environment.
Thanks for the time!
