PerSay 1.3 is now available

Performant Systems is announcing today the immediate availability of their PerSay product version 1.3 for the OpenQM and Universe multivalue database environments. PerSay is a software development system for building visual models of text based entry screens and reports utilizing the advanced query language of the multiuser, multivalue Universe database system. PerSay instantly turns a visual model into robust compiled BASIC code, providing multiuser software ready for business applications. With the included Dictionary editor "Dr. Dict" along with many other tools, PerSay provides a complete environment for database developers.

AccuTerm Ready
Optimized to take advantage of AccuTerm, PerSay will optionally go into condensed 132 column mode for Reports and offers an "AccuPrint" output option to send print output directly to the user's default Windows printer.

With PerSay, a new user is given good examples to understand how to take advantage of this advanced database environment. Experienced multivalue database developers will find PerSay a joy to use. Complete business systems can be built in hours instead of weeks. Having PerSay provide the robust framework for software allows a developer to focus on the creative work of design, rather than having to hand code every line. The consistency and easily discerned flow of the instantly generated BASIC code provides developers an advantage.

Originally created in 2004 for the OpenQM database, PerSay has evolved into a feature rich system, proven over years of use. The 1.3 version released in April of 2010 is specifically tuned and optimized for the Universe database product as well as OpenQM. Universe is a robust and complete multiuser, multivalue database system. Formerly an IBM product, Universe is presently sold and supported by Rocket Software at .

No run-time or software keys are required for PerSay. PerSay is provided free of charge using the same Open Source licensing that Linux does, the GNU Public License (GPL).
