RPGsp Application Among Top 3 Finalists for iSeries Innovation Awards

Dayton, OH, March 28, 2006 - Profound Logic today announced that an RPG Smart Pages (RPGsp) application has been chosen as a finalist for IBMís System i Innovation Awards in the i5/OS Focus category that was developed for The Screening Pros. The Screening Pros, a southern California based applicant screening company provides consumer information to aid landlords in making rental decisions. The entire application was developed using Profound Logicís RPGsp development environment for native RPG-based web development on the iSeries.

The Screening Prosí members range from individual owners, large multi-family property management companies, Apartment Associations and other re-sellers operating as wholesalers of The Screening Prosí services.

The Screening Pros run their entire business on RPGsp software, which allows them to provide the most comprehensive applicant screening system in the industry. The heart of the business is a custom RPGsp application that allows The Screening Pros operators, end-users and resellers to access consumer information for making rental and employment decisions. This RPGsp application is a very modern 100% browser-based system that consists of hundreds of graphical screens, programs, and database files.

Members of The Screening pros have a number of decision making services at their fingertips to aid in making sound rental and employment decisions. Users can sign on to the system and instantly run reports from the major credit bureaus, check their applicant against a national database of eviction records, request criminal reports and much more. The system maintains various levels of user management levels offering flexibility to the member for controlling various management functions within the application.

For a completely objective rental decision, The Screening Prosí customizable decision making tool called The Qualifier will analyze a wide range of consumer data points such as, applicants without credit trade lines or social security numbers, specific tolerance levels for public records, discharged bankruptcies, medical and or educational collections, general credit delinquencies, earnings to rent ratios, eviction and landlord records, check writing data, FICO scores and much , much more.

The system also keeps track of various statistics, and provides a number of reports that allow management companies to analyze everything from rent to income ratios to the effectiveness of their marketing campaigns.

The application is completely brand-able, allowing resellers of Screening Pros services to provide the same system with their own colors, logos, and messages.

For The Screening Pros, the system provides a complete graphical Accounts Receivables package to record transactions, and automatic account statement generation. The AR package includes applications for receiving and posting customer payments, and even features an online payment system.

Both the web application and back-end logic are written completely in i5/OS native ILE RPG, using Profound Logic's RPG Smart Pages (RGPsp) development environment. While software written in RPG is commonly associated with green-screens, The Screening Pros business does not employ a single green-screen application. The custom software uses RPG Smart Pages (RPGsp) technology to deliver state-of-the-art web interfaces across the board. This gives The Screening Pros the rock-solid reliability long associated with the iSeries while at the same time providing the latest graphical goodies and a level of user-friendliness not commonly associated with iSeries applications.
