Major National Retailer uses My-T-Soft® to bridge user interface from Windows to Linux

During the transition from Industrial PCs to Touchscreen based systems, many customers used My-T-Soft Build-A-Board to layout panels that matched membrane panels, so the change-over was as seamless as possible. This reduced operator training time, and made new systems match the systems being replaced. Now that organizations are looking at Android & Linux based solutions, what's old is new again. If the new system looks and operates like the existing system, the actual users / operators will happily & readily accept the new technology roll-out. If everything operates the same way (or there are only minor changes and/or actual improvements), there essentially is no new training time required. In large scale roll-outs, and for ease of transition, these aspects are highly desirable.

One of our customers is now in this transition to a Linux based system, and are able to quickly & easily move over their custom boards & layouts from the existing Windows system to the new Linux targets. With the cross-platform capabilities of the My-T-Soft on-screen keyboards and the different OS targets available via Build-A-Board custom layouts, this is one item that can be checked off the list - just continue to use My-T-Soft!
