<p>At a recent Australian Partners Awards dinner held in The Rocks, Sydney, Progress Software presented its annual Visionary Award for outstanding technical vision to ASPsoftware for its Progress-based Wastedge application suite.</p>
<p>Wastedge is a Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) product, based on the market-leading Progress OpenEdge business application development platform, that leverages Google Maps and mash-ups to significantly streamline booking and workload functions for waste collection and disposal companies.</p>
<p>Progress Software’s Managing Director, Nick Bashara, said ASPsoftware’s solution is highly innovative in the way it uses the Progress development platform to allow users to perform a wide range of tasks.</p>
<p>“ASPsoftware’s Wastedge system exploits the openness and advanced integration capabilities of the Progress OpenEdge platform to combine with other applications like Google Maps to create mash-ups, rich Web 2.0 self-service user interfaces and integration out to field staff mobiles that deliver significant operational efficiencies for waste collection and disposal companies.</p>
<p>“From assigning prices by map area and validating street addresses against map data, to optimising routes, predicting job travel times and load balancing driver commitments, Wastedge offers a rich visual interface that empowers users and adds enormous value and efficiency to the client organisation. We’re proud to partner with ASPsoftware and to recognise their technical vision and innovation with this award,” he said.</p>
<p>In accepting the award, ASPsoftware’s CEO, Terry Daley, said Progress had played an important role in guiding his company’s technology directions and providing a leading edge rapid application development environment that supports the multi-plug-ins capability and connectivity required of modern 21st century collaborative applications.</p>
<p>“Progress is way ahead of the pack when it comes to advising its partners about the latest empowerment programs, Progress has actively encouraged us to work in multi-tenant, on demand, multi-application SaaS ecosystems, providing invaluable input about technology advances and directions.”</p>
<p>ASPsoftware believes its global-ready Google mapping plug-ins will enable it to extend its reach into other transport industry delivery/collection operation realms and already has suitors in Europe and the UK seeking to white-label and on-sell its products</p>
