Compex Commerce® is advanced

We utilize the Business Engineering Environment, integrating the business organization with the software technology (2BEE®).

Communication between users, the IT staff and other departments is considerably simplified.  The consistent methodology, process model and software lead to reduced communication costs and faster development cycles.  Time to market is thus minimized.

Compex Commerce® is convenient

Optimized ergnomics and usability (Compex Visual Commerce) support concurrent operation of different devices:  graphically on PCs, smart phones or MDA devices, or text-based on logistics terminals.

This results in shorter implementation times, reduced training and operating costs and increased user comfort.

Compex Commerce® is open

Application and system architecture are independent of one another.  Whether Unix, Suse Linux or Windows, you decide on the platform.  Our standard interfaces ensure the connectivity to other systems.

We minimize your operating costs on the basis of available system solutions.

Compex Commerce® is flexible

Management of the organization is performed through business-process modeling;  functionality is integrated into the business process.

This reduces the time from the business idea to the delivery of the production software application, resulting in lower implementation costs.

Compex Commerce® is object-oriented

Compex Commerce® consists of components and elements which are implemented using object-oriented programming languages, and is release-compatibly customizable by the user with the Compex Standard Business Language (SBL).

Compex delivers all the benefits of  the object-oriented programming paradigm;  your long-term investment is secure!
