How does TRADEPAQ.enable work? TRADEPAQ.enable transforms your legacy host screens into Web-enabled applications.
  • TRADEPAQ.enable includes its own TN3270/5250 connectivity.
  • End users download the 100% pure Java applet from a Web server and can connect to the host through a browser, across networks, intranets, and the Internet.
  • TRADEPAQ.enable works with today's industry standard security protocol, Secure Socket Layer (SSL), to encrypt the data being sent over the Internet.
  • Employees can access host applications from their homes, sales people can file reports from the road, and related parties, such as suppliers and vendors, can access your host to check inventory levels and other important information.
  • Applications can be opened to the public, enabling customers to fill out orders directly, ensuring accuracy and reducing the need for telephone support.
There is no installation required on the client, and no code needs to be saved on the client's computer. Users accessing the host across slower Internet connections can choose to install TRADEPAQ.enable in their browser's permanent cache, eliminating the need to download the TRADEPAQ.enable applet.
  • IT departments don't have to physically install software on each computer, which makes upgrading software as simple as putting a new version on the Web server.
Every host application screen being accessed will be automatically presented as a browser screen, with defined input fields, clickable function keys and menu buttons, and light-pen and reverse image support.
  • Without any customization, host screens are presented graphically and perform all of the functions that were programmed into the mainframe or AS/400.
  • All function keys are active, and there is two-way communication with the host.
  • TRADEPAQ.enable allows you to customize only the heavily used screens of the application and leave the other screens as default GUIs. Users will never have to see a green screen again.
TRADEPAQ.enable customization requires no programming or scripting.
  • Move a field by dragging it across the screen with the mouse
  • Convert menu options into buttons with a few clicks of the mouse.
  • Change or translate a host label's caption by typing a new caption into that label.
  • Hide fields with the spacebar.
  • Add images, such as banners and logos, to enhance the appearance of the host application.
  • Replace function keys with clickable buttons.
  • Create drop-down lists and radio buttons to replace host fields.
  • Change the font and color of an application by object, screen, or globally.
  • Add frequently used functions to the toolbar or disable host functions to restrict access to the application.
  • Create context sensitive help and valid-value lists to diminish reliance on user support.
  • Screens can be distributed as they are completed, and a typical application administrator can customize about eight to twelve screens a day.
Functions and Features Measurable productivity gains:
  • Employee productivity is significantly enhanced because of the minimal training required.
  • The application will look the same at the office or on the road. An easy-to-use consistent interface will be presented wherever users access the host.
  • End-users also have some limited customization options, like changing the application color and font.
  • Paper copies of transactions can be printed.
  • Today's users are accustomed to pointing and clicking their way through applications with the mouse. Studies have shown that people are more comfortable, more productive, and more likely to learn more of the functions of an application in a graphical environment.
Access to meaningful information automatically!
  • Screens can be bypassed and users can navigate through the application to get directly to the screens they need to access.
  • You can automate log-on, skip screens that contain sensitive information, and eliminate the need for the user to input redundant information.
  • Save values from one screen to be input or displayed on subsequent screens.
  • Combine screens to streamline workflow and make users more productive.
  • Create an on-screen calculator to eliminate the need to toggle between applications.
  • Translate host codes (like "M or F") into user intelligible language (like "Male or Female").
  • Link host application screens to intranets and the Internet to give users direct links to information they require.
Integration of multiple applications:
  • Extend the boundaries of host applications by delivering data for further reformatting and integration with other sources and returning or displaying the results.
  • Export host data to other applications, such as Microsoft Excel™, Microsoft Word™, and e-mail to let users easily take host data outside of the host application.
  • Advanced macros, comprehensive database access, and LDAP support further extend the capability, enabling administrators to automate and simplify end-user access and operations.
