TKO’s owner Ted Kraus
approached Eagle Systems USA, Inc. with the idea of creating a new
reliable and scalable web based application allowing customers to access
Tenant Search through the Internet.
He was interested in an easy to use:
- wizard based user interface simplifying complicated search criteria
- ability to save search results in a file and download it to the users’ computer
- tenant search alert option that automatically emails most recent updates to the customers
- comprehensive easy to read reports
- ability to create form letters
After reviewing TKO’s wish list Eagle Systems USA, Inc. created web based
application running on Windows 2000 Server (IIS 5) and using Microsoft SQL
Server 2000 for data storage. Microsoft Visual Studio was used for
