We have lift off, FoxOMS 2.0 cloud scheduling app launch

FoxOMS 2.0 cloud scheduling web app was re-written from the ground up to take advantage of the latest web technologies, provide mobile device compatibility and redesign the underlying architecture to improve scalability and ongoing maintenance issues.

Overview

FoxOMS 2.0 successfully launched over the weekend, a cumulation of more than 2 and a half years of software development. FoxOMS was re-written from the ground up to take advantage of the latest web technologies, provide mobile device compatibility and redesign the underlying architecture to improve scalability and ongoing maintenance issues.

Background

FoxOMS is cloud based resource scheduling software designed for the film, television and creative industries. It was launched in 2010 and so far more than 100,000 bookings and 5000 projects have been created and managed through FoxOMS.

FoxOMS 2.0

When FoxOMS originally made its debut in 2010, it quickly became clear that there was a strong demand for user friendly, affordable resource scheduling software. FoxOMS filled that gap neatly, but it quickly grew to a scale that was difficult to maintain and update. It was soon decided to start with a clean slate and rewrite the code so that updates could be pushed out nightly and scaling across multiple servers was a breeze. We also did extensive industry consultation to find out what our customers loved and what could be improved.

FoxOMS 2.0 features a new scheduler interface, multiple schedules, enhanced project management, task management, custom groups, security and access controls, calendar feeds, resource avatars and file cloud storage just to name a few. CEO Tim Mohr; “We basically went back to our customers to find out what parts of FoxOMS were important to them and how we could build on that. We are very happy with the result and the feedback from clients who have upgraded has been extremely positive”. A complete list of features can be found here.

The roadmap is also looking very exciting, with nightly bug fixes and regular monthly feature releases planned. Version 2.1 will improve our email notification support and 2.2 will introduce resource cost analysis.
