The Limrose Group was founded about 30 years ago
by Dr. and Mrs. R. Raizada in the UK to manufacture Microelectronics Training
Systems, Computer hardware, Software and IT/Management Consultancy. The
Limrose Group now manufactures a wide range of hardware and software products
and provides consultancy services in UK, USA and other countries. One of the
earlier companies in the group, Limrose Electronics Limited, did the original
development work on Progen4GL and other software tools, including real-time
Operating Systems, low level languages, assemblers and Rom-based Basic
products are now widely used throughout Britain and in many countries
overseas. Progen4GL and Tutorkit are Limrose Group's Registered Trade Marks.
The US Office, Addtechnology Solutions, was opened in 1998 to provide IT
Consultancy services in the USA, and to support Limrose's
microelectronics training systems sold in the USA and Canada.
Progen4GL for Windows
Progen4GL for Windows was released in 2003 for Rapid
Application Development. Progen4GL for Windows cuts the cost of
software development by 80% or more as most applications can be developed
with little or no programming. Although
Progen4GL has its own built-in RDBMS, it can also read and write to other
databases such as Microsoft Access, SQL Server and Oracle and the built-in
Report Writer can be used for producing reports from non-Progen databases
without programming. Progen4GL is SQL-compatible and aims to become
the "universal" database which can communicate with products
from diverse vendors over a distributed system.
Limrose's Progen4GL-based "packages"
and other software products are currently being used at a large number of
sites in UK and overseas on PC-networks.
