Lawson Smart Office, an exemplary WPF application

September 3, 2008

Last week before taking off for vacation, I posted a video of Lawson Smart Office.  The application is a great example of what you can do with the power of WPF.  A nice-looking user interface which the user can easily navigate and understand as well as personalize in many different ways.

Here’s a more descriptive quote from Jaime Rodriguez’s post about the Smart Office:

Smart Office is a front-end to Lawson’s suite of applications -which includes Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP), Supply Chain Management (SCM), Enterprise Performance Management (EPM), and Custome Resource Management (CRM).
The best description I have heard for Smart Office is Matt calling it an "information workspace".  A typical user can spend all day inside the app, as such it is a full-screen applications that simulates a shell -they call it a "Canvas"-. It has everything inside the app, window management, quick task switching, sidebar, drag-drop, shell and office integration, and of course lots of screens or apps to interact with the Lawson back-end. Smart Office aims to make an organization’s people more effective, their processes more efficient, and the end-users happier. Smart Office focuses on the user’s needs, and focuses on simplicity and meaningful collaboration to improve user and group productivity.

The video provides a short walk-through of the application with Matthew Allbee from Lawson Software.  High quality screen capture was used to catch the UI in action.
