Architecture. Scalability.

Whistle grows as your organization grows. Whistle offers a robust three-tiered client-server architecture that is scalable to any facility size and number of concurrent users. Whistle is extremely portable and can be hosted on a variety of application servers, including Windows Server and UNIX-LINUX operating systems, and works with a variety of relational database platforms. Whistle can continue running during network or database failures.
 
Whistle’s comprehensive architecture enables clients to choose from character or graphical-based user interfaces. The Whistle application server performs all transactions in Whistle. Customers can install Whistle into the same database as their ERP system or keep it on a separate database or server for greater redundancy. Whistle also comes with built-in barcode label printing, a feature normally available only from third-parties costing upwards of tens of thousands of dollars.
"We required a solution that we could get up and running in less than 30 days. A quick, easy implementation and tight integration with our existing ERP system was a key factor in our selection of Whistle from Coolearth."
