“Open Automation Software is a product that takes all of the work out of creating .Net applications that quickly address the business needs at hand. Instead of spending hours upon hours creating OAS level communications and worrying about functionality such as data logging, alarming, remote communication, and GUI component develop, this toolkit provides this functionality at our fingertips that allows us to very quickly get an enterprise-level application based on the .Net framework up and running very quickly. Scalability? Not a problem…” Brad Witter – CTO and Co-founder Blue Pillar, Inc.
