Pervasive Software(R) Inc., a leading provider of embedded and Web database software that powers business-critical applications, today announced Healthsoft Inc., a provider of management software designed to address the needs of all dental professionals, has embedded the flexible and reliable Pervasive.SQL(TM) 2000i server and workgroup database engines into its Windows-based Windent product line.
"Migrating from Btrieve(TM) to Pervasive.SQL gives our customers the transactional power and performance they expect today, and the flexibility and scalability to meet their needs tomorrow," said Thai Hoang, president of Healthsoft. "Pervasive.SQL's stability and administration tools allow us to provide our customers with a robust application that can easily grow as their offices grow. Because Pervasive.SQL requires little or no administration, we are able to focus our development efforts on enhancing the application based on suggestions and preferences given to us by the dental community."
Upgrading to Pervasive.SQL 2000i boosts the performance, scalability and functionality of the Windent product line, now in use in thousands of dental offices around the country. Pervasive.SQL gives Windent users a more stable and robust data-management platform as well as tighter integration with third-party software, including seamless integration with Microsoft Office applications.
"Compatibility with existing Btrieve applications on Windows platforms is just one of Pervasive.SQL's rich set of features that makes it possible for Healthsoft to provide its customers with best-of-breed applications," said Ron Harris, president and CEO for Pervasive Software. "We designed Pervasive.SQL with features intended to minimize deployment and support costs, while facilitating Web and cross-platform migrations."
