Michael Gotfredsen, a hobbyist developer, recognized that boot camp-style personal trainers in Australia are in need of quality, affordable desktop and mobile tools.
Gotfredsen set out to create a niche domain enterprise resource planning (ERP) tool that helps manage sessions, trainees, invoicing, and payments. He was using a default chart control that utilized the basic Silverlight chart control, but it offered limited functionality and a basic appearance.
Gotfredsen turned to Syncfusion to add visual style and utility. He used the Syncfusion Chart control for LightSwitch, which provided him an easy-to-use, attractive chart to help him manage resources and information. He saved approximately 10 hours of development time.
In addition, Gotfredsen found Syncfusion’s support team especially helpful. At one point, his chart’s x-axis label binding wasn’t functioning correctly when used with a WCF RIA service. The support team quickly provided a patch ahead of Syncfusion’s normal quarterly release cycle.
