OWrite for Omnis Studio



OWrite is a powerful desktop client and server control for Omnis Studio that provides sophisticated ad-hoc reporting and document management features within Windows and Macintosh client and server environments.

OWrite looks and behaves like a word processor allowing end-users to feel right at home and although OWrite may not support some features found in mainstream word processors, it possesses more than enough word-processing power for users and developers to fashion professional documents and templates capable of merging complex data from any Omnis application. 

Its specialized features coupled with its word-processor style implementation make OWrite an indispensable tool, providing end users with an easy-to-use powerful interface for managing the appearance of their data-bound documents, and providing developers with the programmability to truly control every aspect of ad-hoc reporting. In addition, the provision of a non-visual document object class provides unsurpassed power for automated processes.


Price: OWrite limited deployment from 470,- unlimited deployment from 3.870,- *
All OWrite licenses include free OSpell2 and PDFDevice licenses.
