GIST Technology for Wings 2000
Wings Infonet, used GIST SDK, ISM and Ntrans to develop Wings2000 for Indian languages. Wings2000 is a financial accounting package which converts, shows and prints all invoices, vouchers, books and relevant reports in a number of Indian languages namely - Hindi, Marathi, Rajasthani, Gujarati, Telugu, Tamil, Malayalam, Kannada, Oriya, Bengali, Punjabi and Assamese. This is comprehensive software, with a powerful reporting mechanism.
GIST enabled Wings2000 - the first accounting software, to offer the ease of accounting in up to 12 Indian languages. Wings, incorporates the unique WERI (Write English Read Indian) technology, which allows the user to enter transactions in English (the easiest way to enter data) and view or print books and reports in any or all of 12 Indian languages.
Accounting books and reports can be generated in Hindi, Gujarati, Rajasthani, Telugu, Kannada, Tamil, Malayalam, Marathi, Oriya, Bengali, Assamese and Punjabi. It is also possible to generate a report in a different language in each column of the report. Using Wings, it is also possible to maintain and edit dictionaries to facilitate proper translation.
Wings Infonet has translated a large number of commonly used accounting and related words and phrases from English into Hindi, Gujarati, Telugu and Tamil. These translated phrases are now incorporated in the Wings2000 Dictionary.
In the late '80s, two practicing chartered accountants began to realize the painful truth about the accounting software existing in the market. If the software was easy to use, it was too simplistic for any but the smallest of businesses. Alternatively, if it had the features to meet realistic needs - it required a doctorate in computer science to use it! With the objective of overcoming such shortcomings, Wings Infonet was set up in Hyderabad.
Over the years the company has delivered more than 10 versions of software, each, being superior to the previous one.
To develop an accounting package that incorporates Indian language capability.
C-DAC's Graphics and Intelligence based Script Technology (GIST) was used to develop the accounting package: Wings2000 for Wings Infonet Ltd.
