Montreal, QC. May 1, 2012 – Alphinat Inc. (TSX-VN : NPA), provider of Software for the Smart Enterprise™, today announced that it has entered into an original equipment manufacturing (OEM) agreement with CSDC Systems Inc., a leading provider of business process automation solutions for government agencies.

CSDC will incorporate Alphinat SmartGuide® into their AMANDA platform giving government and corporate customers the ability to quickly deploy online services that allow clients, businesses and citizens to safely and securely apply for, submit, track, manage, and pay for applications online.

SmartGuide is the first rapid application development platform to allow business users to manage the entire content and logic of an application through visual, drag-and-drop tools. In addition, its “Build once, deploy anywhere” (TM) functionality allows building an application once and ensuring its optimal display on every device used to access it, whether it’s a PC, a tablet, a smartphone or a kiosk.

“Our government and corporate customers are looking for ways to keep up with the ever-growing demands of constituents in terms of online service delivery”, said Eric David, Executive Vice President – Strategy of CSDC. “Alphinat SmartGuide provides us with a proven platform to rapidly deliver AMANDA Public Portal services to multiple devices without requiring changes to the business or data tiers of the application”.

“We are very pleased to partner with CSDC Systems and look forward to a long, successful relationship” said Philippe Lecoq, President and CEO of Alphinat. “This agreement underlines our commitment to providing our OEM partners with the ability to rapidly build, test and maintain enterprise-grade applications that can be deployed across multiple devices and platforms.”

About Alphinat

At Alphinat, we are driven by the passion to make application development easy for everyone. It always struck us as odd that the people with the vision of how a finished application should look and behave would only be involved at the start of the process. After all, what better way to ensure a favourable outcome than to provide those closest to an application’s end-users with a vested interest in its success throughout its development?

That’s why we bring you new ways to empower the right people at the right time in the application development process. At the same time, we’re constantly working to reduce the need to code in order to make application development and maintenance simpler and less error-prone.

So whether you choose to develop your applications with the help of our low-code platform SmartGuide®, kickstart your project using one of our pre-built apps or engage us or one of our partners to do the work for you, we’re here to help you deploy better applications in record time.
