Kalipso is a rapid application generator for Microsoft based operating system terminals, with a special focus on mobile activity. Supporting Windows Mobile, Windows CE, XP, Vista and Windows Seven, Kalipso allows you to, in an easy and quick way, create online or offline applications. Common indoor applications are Warehouse Management, Quality Control, Shop Floor Control and Asset Management. Common outdoor applications are Sales Force, Route Accounting, Field Services, Proof of Delivery and many others.
Kalipso is composed of 3 main elements:
- Kalipso Studio – Visual environment to create applications.
- Kalipso Client – Engine (installed on the device) that allows you to execute the applications developed with Kalipso Studio.
- MIS Communicator – Engine that manages communications between terminals and servers. Only Kalipso Studio is licensed. For the other 2 products, it´s NOT necessary any kind of license.
(*this is no applicable for Kalipso Voice Studio and Kalipso Voice Runtimes; in this case, you must have an additional license for Kalipso Voice Studio and Kalipso Voice runtime license for each terminal; also, software such as PrinterCE from Field Software, TOMTOM or other external products, is NOT included.)
Kalipso has 4 main types of runtime clients:
- Windows Mobile
- Windows CE
- Desktop (PC)
Most of the Kalipso features are available for all 4 client types. However, some of them are specific for one or two operating systems. Please check the Actions documentation to see this kind of cases.
