Americhem choose Effichange to convert their IBM Notes applications to XPages with the XPager Suite


November 24, 2015 – NATICK, MA -– Americhem Inc., a global leader in the production of color and additive solutions for polymeric products, chose EffiChange LLC, a software and services company specialized in delivering modernization solutions, to convert their IBM Notes applications to XPages using the Effichange XPager Suite.

Americhem is looking to reduce use of IBM Notes client by web enabling their critical IBM Notes database applications. During their research they found the XPages platform could be the solution to building web front ends on their IBM Notes Client applications.

"We found that migrating our applications to other platforms would be costly and time consuming but found that using XPages could allow us to take advantage of existing design work, modernize our applications and reduce completion time." says Jean Gagne, IT Manager at Americhem. "Through our research we found the Effichange XPager Suite and immediately took advantage of their offer to put one of our databases through their conversion process to show us what XPager can do. We were pleased with the initial results, but found that some rework is required. With our limited, in-house XPages expertise we chose to have Effichange provide training as well as contracted them to complete the rework of our database application. This allowed us to experience the process of using XPager to web enable and modernize our IBM Notes application. Our application is production ready and we will be able to solicit feedback from our users on their modern web experience for decision making on future database conversions".

"We converted one of our databases with mid-level complexity", says Cynthia Floyd, Programmer/Analyst at Americhem. "Our first step was to send a copy of our database application to Effichange and they converted it to XPages using XPager and presented the results to us for free. This allowed us to get a feel for what the XPager tool could do without any initial investment. We decided to purchase an XPager license and two days of training. Our database was used in the training sessions so additional conversion work was completed during the training. We gained a better knowledge and understanding of the XPages conversion process, but decided to contract with Effichange for development services to complete the XPages conversion of our database. XPager is a powerful tool for use in getting IBM applications converted to XPages. We are very satisfied with the capabilities of the XPager tool and the expertise provided by Effichange. Their XPager tool and support services were a great help in quickly meeting the goal of placing a web front end on our IBM Lotus application. We see XPager as a viable tool for future web enablement of our remaining IBM Notes database applications".

The EffiChange XPager Suite™ is a powerful, IBM Domino Designer based, rapid XPages development platform to web enable or mobilize IBM Notes applications. XPager empowers developers to convert existing IBM Notes applications to XPages automatically, reducing the effort by up to 90%. The XPager Suite enables even novice XPages developers to successfully complete and scale XPages projects with minimal risks, time, cost and resources.

“We are excited to have Americhem as a customer and look forward to converting the rest of their Notes application portfolio to XPages” says Yuval Shimoni CEO at Effichange LLC, “using the XPager Suite, we are confident that we can deliver quality XPages applications on time and for low cost. I think that XPager is a must have product for customers who are considering or actively engaged in XPages development as well as customers that are migrating away from Notes but still have some Notes applications in use. XPager provides customers with cutting edge web and mobile capabilities and highly usable user interfaces. It significantly lowers the effort, cost and risk associated with XPages development and eliminates the need for migration”.

EffiChange LLC announces a special XPager promotion

Purchase your first XPager license and get the second license free!

October 7, 2014 – Natick, MA,– EffiChange LLC is a software and services company specialized in delivering modernization and infrastructure management solutions for large application and messaging environments announced a special promotion for The EffiChange XPager Suite™. The XPager Suite is a powerful Domino Designer based development platform for XPages. XPager enables developers to easily create new XPages applications or convert existing IBM Notes applications to XPages automatically, reducing the effort by up to 90%. The XPager Suite enables even novice XPager developers to successfully complete and scale XPages projects with minimal risks, time, cost and resources.
The EffiChange XPager Suite can be purchased in distinct packages and its pricing is based on the number of converted Notes databases (unique replicas). The XPager Suite pricing includes volume discounts and when you purchase your first XPager license you get the second license for free!
“The nice thing about XPager is that the customer doesn't have to commit to a large purchase right from the start. They can purchase it for a few databases; work with it, and purchase more licenses as needed. We offer customers live demos using their Notes databases so they can see what their application will look like before they purchase the product. “Says Yuval Shimoni, EffiChange CEO. “They even have the option to purchase the converted database without purchasing the product at all. This flexibility significantly lowers the risk associated with a new software purchase”.

XPager Features

  • The XPager converts the hundreds of design elements including hide-when formula, tool-tips, data binding and more.
  • The XPager output can be customized (iteratively) and the customization can be applied to many databases. Any lessons learned, best practices or corporate standards can be applied automatically.
  • The XPager output can be customized without the need for software upgrades.
  • XPager injects static resources into the resulting database like style sheets, themes (bootstrap, border container). This is not only a time savings feature but enables best practices and the applications of standards via themes without the need to modify the application every time there is a business requirement (that never end).
  • XPager produces native XPages code and injects it into the Notes application. The developer can modify the code as if they wrote it themselves. It converts most Notes design elements automatically and creates the XPages markup. The Formula language is converted to SSJS. The LotusScript code is brought in place for easy conversion. There is no proprietary software involved.
  • XPager saves on the maintenance of the resulting applications since they are all consistent and uniform. This enables easy fixes and enhancements across many databases at once. It also gives the ability for new developers to quickly contribute to multiple projects.
  • XPager uses Bootstrap 3.2 as the default theme allowing for easy mobilization of the converted applications.
