Custom Software Development Specializing in COBOL Programming
Lewis Systems is based in Eugene, Oregon and has been developing custom software since 1983. We provide much of the software for the administration of Securities Class Action Settlements for one of the worlds largest claims administrators,
Gilardi & Co.
We have also developed
parking administration software
using Epson's touch-screen EHT40 hand-held computers and do custom work for mass mailings, data conversions, voter registration data extraction, DMV data extraction and special requests.
Custom software development for Windows 95/98/NT and DOS
Complex data analysis
Converting mainframe tape data to PC formats
Cooperative Development Option
Although Lewis Systems provides standard arrangements for programming services, we are also looking for companies with specialized computing needs that would be interested in a form of partnership where we develop the software that fits your needs (at a substantially reduced price to your business) and our company maintains the right to market the software. As the discount would depend upon estimated market value we cannot list a standard rate but we would be more than happy to discuss this possibility with your company.
There is a persistent rumor that COBOL is an outdated language so we thought we would explain why we choose COBOL as our primary development tool. COBOL -- like most languages -- has evolved and adapted with time. Today, COBOL creates windows with an extensive list of Windows controls and functions (List boxes, rich edit fields, pop-up menus, response to mouse and window events, ...); the list of features is huge. COBOL can create applications that support ODBC data formats (such as Microsoft Access), include OLE objects, create modules that can be called by most other languages including C++ and Visual Basic, and can be deployed as CGI Internet applications or in mainframe, client/server or multi-tasking environments.  It is COBOL's performance and reliability that make it the language of choice for business applications.
