The Controller Series

The Controller Series software was developed in-house by Mainframe Associates. This fully integrated multi-user software has continued to develop over a eighteen year period into a stable, consistent, highly functional, and extremely user-friendly product.

The product is "customer driven" and special request enhancements are delivered quickly and efficiently at minimal cost. That is why we believe we have the best software engineering service available.

Health Food Controller

On-going development is funded through a strong commitment to research and development. The product development group is committed to providing Mainframe Associates' customers with an integrated series of software modules to meet their needs in the next millennium.

A typical year will see over $200,000 invested in the product, with all new modules developed being made available to our customer base with each new software release.

The Controller Series software is successfully installed in sites boasting over 50 work stations, over 40 printers and having annual sales in excess of $60 million.

User documentation is extensive and is constantly being improved upon.

Unlike a number of our competitors, Mainframe committed to an open database right from the start. In effect, this makes our software one of the easiest to leave, as the user is able to look at the definitions of the entire database at any time.

The Controller Series software supports 'client server' architecture, which simply stated, means that all data is readily available to the desktop for additional analysis including the import of that data into such tools as spreadsheets and third party database engines.

A unique user manageable 'flag' system has allowed Mainframe to install The Controller Series software across a wide range of business types. We install the same product in sites as varied as Building Supply, Federal and Private Marinas, Health Food Stores, Power Sport Stores and RV Parks to name just a few. In recent years we have seen widely diverse businesses adopt one another's practices proving the adage "a good business practice is a good business practice."

The Controller Series software is supported on both terminals and PC's and co-exists easily with networked products.

Over the years, Mainframe has integrated The Controller Series into such diverse products as scales, telephone systems, door monitoring software and fuel pumps to mention a few.

The Controller Series presently supports direct access to over 30 manufacturer and distributor parts files and boasts a unique design that easily allows us to add an unlimited number of these kinds of files as and when required. Consider the benefits of having a system that automatically scans through a manufacturer's parts file containing over 120,000 items during the preparation of a quote, order, or sale - all in seconds. Consider also the benefit of not having these parts in your inventory file but have the system automatically 'learn' the part number.
