Firebird VAR's

Aurora Software

Aurora Software has been providing solutions to the transportation industry for over 30 years. We provide a full range of products to meet the needs of most over the road operations. We offer truckload, LTL, air freight, intermodal dispatch, document imaging and a full suite of back office applications. Our dispatch and document imaging modules are powered by Firebird.

While we specialize in solutions for the transportation industry, our document imaging application (TransDoc) is suitable for a wide range of business needs. TransDoc allows you to scan and index all types of records; bills of lading, delivery receipts, checks, invoices, etc. Once indexed, the images can be recalled, printed, faxed, emailed and merged with other printed output (rendition print). The uses are limited only by your imagination. The main document imaging engine is implemented as an ActiveX control, allowing TransDoc to be tightly integrated with your own applications.

CAMAlot

An application that uses Firebird extensively. The application actually utilizes 2 separate databases. One to hold data and the other to hold images. The "data" database is typically around 100 to 200 megabytes while the "image" database is anywhere from 500 megabytes to 4 gigabytes, depending on the size of client. The "data" database consists of over 120 tables and 440 stored procedures. All of the business rules and calculation are stored in the database in the form of Check Constraints, Triggers, and Stored Procedures.

This application is Windows Based and is written with C++ Builder. We have approximately 40 installations of our software and will have 70 by the end of the year as we are upgrading clients from DOS and AS/400 Versions of the software.

Our software is used by Property Assessors to calculate property values. In the assessment industry, the term for this type of application is a CAMA System (Computer Assisted Mass Appraisal), thus the name, "CAMAlot". This application is quite large and is quite complicated. The assessor records all the pertinent information about properties in the database. For residential properties, the assessor would record data from the size and style of home, to the number of fireplaces. For commercial properties, the assessor would record data from the size and style of building, to the tenants and rental rates that they pay. For farmland properties, the assessor records the different fields including the type of soil, topography, stones, etc. that may influence value.

Some of our customers used to have systems that embed Oracle. Firebird has provided them with matching or better performance, more flexibility as a result of hardware and software requirements, lower initial cost and especially lower cost of maintenance due to the zero administration required by Firebird.
