Custom Barcode and RFID Software Solutions
We create custom data collection applications using a wide variety of software development tools. With a large base of existing code, ATT Buys can quickly and economically product the application software you need for your data collection needs. With ATT Buys as your development partner, you can feel confident that your project will complete on schedule, on budget and will give you the desired results.
Custom Wireless/Mobile Application Development
One of the challenges facing many companies is that they have devices using more than one operating system. We have the capability to develop and integrate into a multitude of platforms including:
Software Development Kit (SDK)
Depending on your hardware, and your application, we select the development tools that best satisfies your requirementss. SSG has the expertise to create custom software solutions including but not limited to:
We have built batch, wireless, and wide-area applications. A batch application requires that the handheld device be placed in a cradle to synchronize its data with a host database. A wireless application uses a wireless LAN (Wi-Fi network) to communicate in real time with the host database. A wide-area application communicates over the Internet with a host database that can be located thousands of miles away. A typical data collection system for a handheld terminal includes:
Custom Client/Server Application Development
A typical Client/Server Application Development will consist of the same basic elements that a handheld application, however, will reside on a PC. These applications generally have a shorter development time since desktop SDKâ€™s are typically less time intensive to develop. A tethered or wireless scanner is typically integrated into the workflow of the application.
Database Architectures and Applications
A database will generally accompany a handheld or Client/Server Application Development. The database can also have a Graphical User Interface (GUI) to will allow users to manipulate, report, or export data through a series of custom screens.
Barcode label generation is generally associated with many of the SSG custom applications. SSG is very flexible in how we can provide label and bar code solutions to our customers. Typical Label Solutions include:
Custom Modification of Commercial Off-the-Shelf (COTS) Software
Many clients™ require modifications of popular software packages, such as IntelliTrack. Here are some examples of how SSG can help with these types of development requests:
Porting Palm Software to Windows-based Platforms
Save Money and Protect Your Investment
With the looming end of life for Palm OS-based products, Alcor helps customers to port their existing applications to modern, Window-based platforms. There are more than a million Palm OS based devices in use and many customers are not ready to throw out their substantial investment.
Some are picking up old units on eBay others are struggling to repair old equipment. With our configuration and development tools we are able to quickly and easily modify existing applications written on older platforms, like Palm OS and Windows CE, so that the application will work on BOTH their old existing hardware and the new Symbol hardware Pocket PC/.Net based terminals that have hit the market.
How can AlcorGlobal help?
With the use of our new technology we can quickly and easily migrate existing software to our technology platform. By converting to our platform the application can support both the older equipment and the newer equipment at the SAME TIME. This reduces application training, operational confusion, and makes a much smoother transition to newer technology.
Any enhancements to the software that have been put off can now be developed and supported on both the new equipment and the old equipment at the same time. This can be a huge benefit for you.

Wireless Network Design
When considering the use of wireless equipment, it is extremely difficult to predict the propagation of radio waves and detect the presence of interfering signals without the use of specialized test equipment. Even if you are using omni-directional antennas, radio waves do not travel the same distance in all directions. Walls, doors, elevator shafts, people, and other obstacles offer varying degrees of attenuation, which cause the radio frequency (RF) radiation pattern to be irregular and unpredictable.
As a result, you should have an RF site survey performed to understand fully the behavior of radio waves within a facility before installing any wireless devices. A site survey is a physical survey of the customer's premises to identify the best possible locations to install access points to ensure 100% wireless coverage, along with maximum performance, within the desired area.
The Site Survey Goal
The goal of an RF site survey is to gather enough information and data to determine the number and placement of access points that will provide the coverage required. Coverage required usually means the support of a minimum data rate in a given area. An RF site Survey will also detect the presence of radio interference coming from other sources that could degrade the performance of the wireless LAN.
Site Survey Complexity
The need and complexity of an RF site survey will vary depending on the size of the facility and the work that is to be accomplished. A site survey is a good idea for the use of any wireless device because without a survey, users could end up with inadequate coverage and suffer from low performance in some areas. The purchase of wireless equipment is no small expenditure, so it is best not to leave any portion of the project up to chance.
To ensure the accuracy of the final site survey report that ATT Buys delivers, only the latest and most sophisticated equipment is used. Handheld Spectrum Analyzers are used as a guiding tool to begin the survey. Afterwards, actual equipment is tested and retested, and then finally the report is generated with the consulting of the facility manager for current or future plans.
Before the actual installation, ATT Buys can prepare the wireless devices to ensure all units are configured and loaded with the necessary software.
Though Staging may seem like an extra step, it is one of the most important steps in the installation process. Staging makes sure when the network hardware arrives at your facility, the access points are in working order and will provide the proper coverage to their destinations.
Staging allows ATT Buys to create a wireless network seamlessly allowing your network to stay up and running without large delays in uptime. Depending on the size of your facility and the placement of access points, a complete wireless network could be set up in under a day.
