Omniprise Graphical User Interface Vs. Terminal Based Applications
Omniprise Graphical User Interface (GUI) software utilizes a modern and flexible interface to access and manage company systems. Benefits include ease of use for the employee, a simplistic graphical interface, straightforward training, and familiar operation. Browser and mobile access also provide a competitive advantage. GUI makes computer operation more intuitive, and thus easier to learn and use. Features include a simplistic graphical interface with mouse control, rather than a text-only screen controlled by keyboard command lines.
For example, purchased part photos are clearly displayed to the user for product identification on-screen. GUI pages function in web standards using the normal features users are familiar with which simplifies training new users. Mouse control and menu systems are easy to use and recognizable for users accustomed to the Windows-Icon-Mouse-Pointer application environment. For example, it is much easier for a new user to move a file from one directory to another by dragging its icon with the mouse than by having to remember and type commands to accomplish the same task. Screens present the user with numerous widgets that represent and can trigger some of the system's available commands.
GUI provides users with immediate, visual feedback about the effect of each action. Knowledge of code or memorization of commands is not required to use Omniprise. The system allows users to take full advantage of the powerful multitasking capabilities of modern operating systems by allowing multiple windows to be displayed simultaneously. These windows enable a user to easily view, control, and manipulate multiple things at once. The result is a large increase in the flexibility of computer use and a consistent rise in user productivity.
