Speed, Speed, and more Speed!!

We have made some major improvements in the area of Speed with this release. Below outlines some of those changes without going into too much technical detail.

Changes under the hood:

  • SQL Data Retrieval
  • SQL Data Writing
  • Dirty State Tracking
  • Caching

Approximate speed improvements in different areas of the program are defined below:

Starting Control - 85%

Loading 50 orders in Explorer - 75% faster

Opening an existing order - 65% faster

Editing and saving an order with 100 line items - 80% faster

Caution: what's only a bit faster:

  • Creating a large order - sorry, only 20% faster.
  • Converting an estimate - sorry, only 20% faster.

Most other areas of the program - 40-90% faster!


A modification was made to simplify the Explorer Toolbar and reposition some of the actions.

A summary line was added to Control (optionally) that will provide aggregate totals for the numeric columns.
