We are a small software house with a wide range of expertise in many different fields. We develop web applications with ASP and ASP.NET, design graphics materials using Adobe Photoshop and Freehand; develop business applications for our clients with the standard .NET technologies (Microsoft Visual Studio 2005, VB.NET, SQL Server 2005, etc).
One application I'm working on at the moment is an application for dentists, which manages customer records, appointments, invoicing, and so on. The application has been developed in VB.NET in Visual Studio 2005 with all data being stored in SQL Server 2005 and reporting done with Crystal Reports.
Due to prior experience using Developer Express components, I decided to use XtraEditors and XtraScheduler in particular. I was very taken with the XtraScheduler component, especially since there are no Dentist applications with a similar scheduling interface to Microsoft Outlook. I wanted, in particular, to create an application that is simple to use, winning, very beautiful graphically. I'm now evaluating XtraGrid with a view to improving parts of the application.
One of the major benefits of using Developer Express components that I've noticed is the great support. Everyone who's helped me from Developer Express has been fast, kind and competent.
