Titus Information Systems, Inc.

Clients and Projects

Titus Information Systems has been in business developing both software packages and custom software since 1979.  The following is a list of both current and former clients with a description of the projects completed or underway for those clients.  There are links to those clients with web sites.  The prospective client is encouraged to contact one or more to investigate Titus Information Systems' software development capabilities, timeliness, and responsiveness.

DPC&S, Phoenix, AZ
This company provides quality data management, order fulfillment, and mailing services to both profit companies and non-profit organizations.  Titus Information Systems has worked extensively on the company web site which provides their clients with up-to-date donor statistics and detail data.  The web site is written entirely in HTML and JavaScript, and it interfaces to a Microsoft SQL Server database that contains all the client donor data.  Titus also maintains the data entry, importing, exporting, credit card processing, and automatic daily processing and reporting functions, which are coded in HTML, JavaScript, and Visual C++ with MFC.

Integrated Trust Systems, Scottsdale, AZ
This company was founded in 1985 with a specific purpose of providing American families with a more efficient and cost-effective way to meet their estate planning objectives.  The company has developed a revolutionary estate-planning system that makes high quality estate planning products and services available to end-user clients through an inclusive financial and legal advisory network.

Titus Information Systems is completely responsible for the complete maintenance of this customer's web site and provided a complete rewrite of the site.  This included redesign of the redundant HTML into frames, maintenance of all downloadable files, and administration of the company's email.  Since some of the data collected from clients is sensitive, Titus arranged for Secure Sockets Layer to be added to the web server.

The foundation of the web site is the Online Data Questionnaire, a web-browser-based method of collecting the data necessary to generate trust documents.  The web site grants database access to sales associates, trust attorneys, and individual clients.  Web site administrators may upload completed trust documents which can be viewed by individual clients and their physicians and beneficiaries.  The web site automatically sends email messages to the appropriate associates and attorneys when new trust documents are submitted or notes for existing trust documents are recorded.  Administrators may view, edit, and change the status of all questionnaire records, trust documents, associates, attorneys, and clients.  All passwords are stored with the US Secure Hash Algorithm 1 (SHA1), and all confidential data is stored with the Advanced Encryption Standard algorithm.  In addition to HTML, there were specific requirements for Cascading Style Sheets and a sizable amount of client-side JavaScript.  Most of the web site consists of Active Server Pages written in JavaScript.  The results collected by these pages are stored in a MySQL database.

Using development software acquired through the Microsoft Empower Program, Titus Information Systems developed and installed several small applications that support the Data Questionnaire, both in its on-line and off-line formats.  This software was developed using Microsoft Visual Studio .NET using Visual C++ with MFC.  Using this same software, Titus also developed a Web Site Backup Utility that automatically performs a daily backup of the customer information stored in the web site "Vault" area onto the Windows XP-based main computer at Titus Information Systems.

One of this company's clients is the Living Trust Center, a California-based marketing company.  They asked Integrated Trust Systems to host the storage of client Estate Plan documents which required the addition of upload capability to the web site.

Since ITS markets primarily to financial advisors and financial management companies, it was expedient to create a method of making the web site appear to be a part of the advisor's company's web site.  This was accomplished by "branding" the ITS web site.  The following links demonstrate this functionality: [ Branded Access | Branded Login | Branded Signup | Branded Client ]
ESDC, Inc., Oswego, NY
This is an independent engineering company providing a wide range of services and products relating to industrial process control systems.  Since 1999, Titus Information Systems has supplied contract programming services in Visual C++ with MFC, character-based C++, Honeywell Assembly Language, and microprocessor assembly language.

Using development software acquired through the Microsoft Empower Program, Titus Information Systems developed and installed software for a replacement interface at the training center of the PSEG Hope Creek Generating Station, a 1059 megawatt nuclear power plant located in New Jersey.  This software was developed using Microsoft Visual Studio .NET using Visual C++ with MFC to operate on the Windows XP-based computer that generates the simulated data points.  This software controls a National Instruments General Purpose Interface Board (GPIB) connected to a Direct Memory Access (DMA) interface board installed in the Honeywell process control computer that operates the Nuclear Power Station Control Room Simulator.  This interface replaced a legacy Encore RSX system, and the customer reports that not only have many errors been eliminated, but also the speed of the interface has been increased.

Titus Information Systems participated in the development of the Aydin Emulation Processor (AEP) by providing the Windows NT based display emulation software.  This hardware and software package is installed in the control room of the BP Exploration (Alaska) Inc. Alaska Oil Field and all three control rooms and both control-room simulators at the Palo Verde Nuclear Generating Station just west of Phoenix.  Titus has received a special commendation from BP for extraordinary assistance in resolving all issues related to the upgrade.

Titus Information Systems developed the PC_Typer Printer Replacement Software currently in use at several power plant clients in New York as well as the control room of the BP Exploration (Alaska) Inc. Alaska Oil Field.  Using development software acquired through the Microsoft Empower Program, Titus Information Systems upgraded this software to be compatible with Microsoft Visual Studio .NET using Visual C++ with MFC to operate on the latest Windows XP-based computer systems.

Titus developed the PC_PAL Assembler and Loader Software by converting an existing character-mode Pascal program to Visual C++ with MFC and adding a graphical user interface.  Titus developed a replacement DDE Server process for the TCP2000 Ethernet Controller using Visual C++ with MFC.  Titus participated in an upgrade of the Aladdin Technologies Disk System, which required the use of both Honeywell Assembly Language and the assembly language for the microprocessor on the Aladdin board.  Additionally, Titus developed a graphical user interface program for the setup of this Disk Controller.
kitchen sink studios, Phoenix, AZ
This firm creates innovative 2D and 3D animation, multimedia videos, and audio production, web design, and print materials.  They produce marketing tools for any profession, product design, architecture, medical, broadcast, and legal product or service.  Titus has assisted with the development of a new, proprietary reporting system using Worldweaver DX Studio, a complete integrated development environment for creating interactive 3D graphics.  Titus has developed a Microsoft Visual C++.NET container application that interfaces with the JavaScript interface to DX Studio.
Villa Precision International, Phoenix, AZ
For more than 25 years, this company has produced high production, high precision, flat glass scribing and breaking to the Precision Glass Scribing Industry.  Since its inception, Titus Information Systems has provided office automation computer services to this customer.  In the 1980's, Titus provided Prime Computer hardware and software.  In the 1990's, Titus assisted with the conversion of that hardware and software to PC-based systems.

Titus Information Systems has produced a custom interface between the Uptrends Contact Management Software package and Microsoft Word and Microsoft Excel using Visual C++ with MFC, MicroFocus NetExpress COBOL, Pervasive SQL, and Visual Basic for Applications (VBA) in both Word and Excel.  In addition to the development of this useful product, Titus personnel are "on call" to assist with problems and training for all aspects of the computer systems, which are based on Novell servers and Windows 2000 workstations.
Fountain Professional Group, Inc., Fountain Hills, AZ
This firm is dedicated to assisting the Christian community by providing assistance for premier planned giving services.  Careful stewardship calls the Christian faithful to do the planning necessary to ensure their family's security while also providing adequate resources to help Christian ministries carry on the Lord's work.  Often times, this stewardship-based philosophy will manifest itself in strategies which enable a donor to increase their personal income, reduce taxes, and pass on the savings to family and favorite charities.

Titus has now taken over the complete maintenance of this customer's web site and moved it from an unresponsive hosting service.  Titus provided a complete rewrite of the site, including a redesign of the redundant HTML into frames.  Titus has also assisted in the development of the Joyful Giving subsidiary web site, and the Stewardship Planning Group, LLC web site owned by an associate of this firm.
Deer Valley Unified School District Information Services Department, Glendale, AZ
The school district uses a series of Novell servers for their student computer system.  The login names are too complicated for the younger students to remember, so Titus created an ActiveX module for the Client32 program that accesses the list of names and id's using the COM interface from a Novell server specified in an .INI file, presents the list to the student in a drop-down box, and initializes the user name field.  This module was developed using Visual C++ with MFC.
Ephesus, Inc., Charlotte, NC
This firm is a professional investment management company offering timely and quality services designed to help meet the financial needs and objectives of individuals and families.  The company serves high net worth clients, institutional investors, businesses, 401(k) and 403(b) pension plans, investment funds and charitable trusts.  Titus has provided an upgrade of this company's web site from simple HTML to Active Server Pages written in JavaScript.  Titus added a MySQL database to store data received through the "contact" and "join" pages.  This caused a need for an "administrative" area of the web site where the client could not only view and maintain these lists, but also dynamically add new "reports" that are displayed on the public area.

Using development software acquired through the Microsoft Empower Program, Titus Information Systems developed and installed an application that automatically retrieves daily investor data from the Dow Jones Indexes subscription FTP site and stores it in the MySQL database for display on the web site.  This software was developed using Microsoft Visual Studio .NET using Visual C++ with MFC and operates on the Windows XP-based main computer at Titus Information Systems.

This web site also supports several companion companies using the same hosting service and MySQL database.  They are America Invest, Arab American Invest, Kingdom Build, Latin America Invest, Middle East Invest, Muslim Invest, The Good Book Invest, Values invest, and Ephesus Saints.
HIMknowledgey Ministry, Bible School Park, NY
This ministry has developed Revive Us Again, which contains 366 of the familiar gospel-hymns and well-known sacred songs, arranged in the order that they become available to American hymnbooks.  The hymns are the same size as in the traditional hymnbook.  Their stories are focused on transformed lives, where applicable, and most of the stories behind the hymns have pictures of the writers where available.  They have 68% of the writers' pictures.  Titus developed the initial web site using HTML and JavaScript,
but its maintenance has been taken over by a friend of the owner.
Christensen Associates, Scottsdale, AZ
This company is a capital market advisory firm that combines Investor Relations, Financial Public Relations and Capital Market intelligence to help global clients achieve and maintain fair valuation for their stock.  Titus has completed a rewrite of the client database lookup portion of the web site to correct several problems and provide numerous enhancements.  This required changes to the HTML, redesign of the Microsoft SQL Server database, and a complete rewrite of the VB Script code in JavaScript.
Robert F. Hockensmith, P.C., Phoenix, AZ
Mr. Hockensmith is a Certified Public Accountant, Certified Financial Planner, and Certified Legal Document Preparer.  Titus provides support for the office network, including configuration of the Microsoft Small Business Server, the tape backup system, and anti-virus software.  Titus moved the company web site from another hosting service onto the in-house server and arranged for the creation of an additional web site for Mr. Hockensmith's Body Building activities.  Titus also maintains the main web site and has upgraded it to use frames, thereby making the content presentation much more consistent throughout all the web pages.
Ellison Media Company, Phoenix, AZ
This company provides service to the Christian community as a leader in Christian media, marketing, technology, and ministry development.  Titus Information Systems has produced numerous custom applications in Prime Information using Info Basic, including a special application that produces a list of zip codes within a geographical area based on the latitude and longitude of the center of the zip code.  In the mid-1980's, Titus supplied a complete Prime Computer system upgrade.  Later, Titus converted all the Prime Info Basic routines to Revelation Basic for use on the PC network.  This included the creation of special software for the transfer of the basic code and the breakup of large routines into smaller modules that would be compatible with the character-mode Revelation.  When this company installed the Great Plains accounting software, Titus supplied routines to interface the remaining Revelation software to the new accounting package.  These routines continue to be used extensively for current company accounting operations.
ELTOPIA, Pasco, WA
Titus Information Systems developed a program for this Internet Service Provider that validates user logins using the VOP Radius Server developed by Vircom.  This program is a DLL module written in Visual C++ with MFC.  It is initiated by the VOP Radius Server, reads and stores in memory a list of valid users and domains, and responds to requests by the VOP Radius Server to authenticate the current user login.
Antal Media, Scottsdale, AZ
This firm has developed solutions for clients in many industries, including telecommunications, media, publishing, internet services, retail, and healthcare.  Titus was asked to add Active Server Pages to a client's web site that would automatically email contact information from several web pages directly to that client.

Custom Wood Designs, Phoenix, AZ
This company designs and installs wood cabinetry in custom homes.  Titus Information Systems is completing a conversion of the bidding software from an overwhelmed Microsoft Excel spreadsheet to a Visual C++ with MFC application.
INTELLIMED International, Phoenix, AZ
This company provides management consulting services to the health care industry.  In the 1980's, Titus Information Systems provided custom reporting applications in Prime Computer COBOL.  When PC's became available, Titus converted these reporting applications to run under DOS, then Windows 3.0, then Win-32.  These were the reports that were too complicated for their in-house programming staff to produce using Advanced Revelation and Power Builder.  Eventually, Titus produced a complete data management system that received data from over a dozen states' reporting agencies, converted that data into a common format, and generated an ODBC database in the format required for the company's ad-hoc reporting product.

During this time, Titus was also primarily responsible for managing the 50-workstation Lantastic network, including installing and configuring the network and Windows software, installing network hardware, hubs, and cabling, diagnosing and correcting network problems, and insuring daily backups were completed.  Eventually, the Lantastic network was replaced with Windows NT servers, and Titus participated in the installation and setup of those workstations as well as modifying the DOS-based software to run with a graphical user interface.  For many years, this company relied on Titus Information Systems to produce their primary money-generating product because Titus was the only company able to get the job done in a timely manner.

In addition to providing network support for the numerous workstations required to house the extremely large databases, Titus Information Systems also provided support for the company email and web servers.  The company email was served with Microsoft Exchange Server, and Titus was completely responsible for the installation, configuration, and maintenance of that Exchange server.  The company web server hosts a variety of web sites, and Titus was partially responsible for managing that server, participating in installation of software, update of web sites, insuring backups were current, and producing a web-based statistical analysis of all web sites using the WebTrends product.

Titus Information Systems also produced several stand-alone products for this company, including a data integrity program using Visual C++ with MFC.  The company is successfully marketing this product to many of their hospital clients in order to increase the accuracy of their required data submissions to state reporting agencies.  In addition to supporting numerous data layouts, the product includes a proprietary installation security module that interfaces with the Microsoft installer.

For nearly twenty years, Titus Information Systems produced over 200,000 lines of code of custom software for this customer.  This software was produced with Visual C++ with MFC, MicroFocus NetExpress COBOL, Fortran, Microsoft Macro Assembler, DOS .BAT files, Advanced Revelation R/Basic, PowerBuilder, SQL, and Visual Basic for Applications (VBA) in both Word and Excel.  The software operated databases stored in Pervasive SQL, Sybase Server, Advanced Revelation, Watcom SQL, BTRIEVE, comma-delimited files, fixed-field files, and binary files.  Many of the databases were designed, created, and maintained by Titus.  In late 2002, the management and direction of the company changed such that custom software development services were no longer required on a daily basis.  Since that time, the company has requested bids on several small projects, including enhancements to the data integrity product and a facility management web site.

When Intellimed was a client, Titus provided maintenance and programming services for several additional web sites using HTML.  These included Human Anatomy Online, My Health Score, BehCon, and Mission Beach Condo.
Arizona Southern Baptist Convention, Phoenix, AZ
This organization coordinates the efforts of scores of Southern Baptist churches in Arizona.  They use the General Ledger System, Accounts Payable System, and Payroll System to produce financial reports for the office staff.  In addition, they use the Denomination Office Manager, a custom software package that manages the list of churches in the state and the contributions they make to the state convention, the national convention, and foreign missions.  Before the task was outsourced to a mailing company, this software also produced Post-Office-compatible sorted mailing labels for the monthly newsletter that is mailed to the leaders of all the churches in the state.  The Denomination Office Manager was originally written in Prime Computer COBOL and Fortran and was converted to run on the PC using the MicroFocus COBOL compiler and Dialog System.

In the mid-1980's, Titus Information Systems provided a Prime Computer office automation system and later converted that system to a Lantastic PC network.  This conversion included all the data and word processing files with no loss of data, documents, or computer time.
First Chinese Baptist Church, Phoenix, AZ
This small church uses the Membership Records Processing software to manage all aspects of the church membership.  Their primary interest in the software is for the automatic offering envelope generation, which increases contributions by being a subtle reminder of a member's stewardship obligation.
Video Library, Billings, MT
This company is a wholesaler of popular videos and DVD's, supplying newly-released product to grocery stores and other retailers all across the northern United States.  Titus Information Systems initially provided a Prime Computer office automation system for a third-party custom software developer.  Then, when that third-party developer was no longer available, Titus converted that third-party custom software to run with the same character-based "look and feel" on their newly-acquired Windows 2000 Server/Windows 98 Workstation network.  They are presently considering another conversion to upgrade to a graphical user interface.
Arizona Baptist Children's Services, Phoenix, AZ
This non-profit agency of the Arizona Southern Baptist Convention provides restorative services to children in distress.  When ABCS was a client, they used the General Ledger System, Accounts Payable System, and Payroll System to produce financial reports for the office staff.  In addition, they used the Kids Accounting System, a custom software package that manages the funds set aside for their child clients.  This custom software was written with the MicroFocus COBOL compiler and Dialog System.

In the mid-1980's, Titus Information Systems provided a Prime Computer office automation system and later converted that system to a Novell server-based PC network.  This conversion included all the data and word processing files with no loss of data, documents, or computer time.
Sunrise Community Church, Fair Oaks, CA
This large church is located near Sacramento.  When they were a client, they used the Membership Records Processing software to manage all aspects of the church membership.  They also used the General Ledger System, Accounts Payable System, and Payroll System for financial reporting.  In the mid-1980's, Titus Information Systems provided them a Prime Computer office automation system for use with these software packages.  Later, Titus converted all the software and data to operate on their Novell server-based PC network.  This conversion included all the data and word processing files with no loss of data, documents, or computer time.
Graphic Art Reproductions, Bedford, TX
This printing company uses a custom application that manages the real estate listings that this company produces in book form.  In the mid-1980's, Titus Information Systems provided them a Prime Computer office automation system for use with this custom software.  Later, Titus converted all the software and data to operate on a PC.  This conversion included all the data and word processing files with no loss of data, documents, or computer time.
Piebald Times, Cato, NY
This organization is a place where information that tends to dot a negative image on the school district can come together and later be disseminated to explain more about an issue or situation.  By knowing more, the overall community can begin to sway their focus back toward the students of the Cato-Meridian School District  Titus developed the entire web site using HTML, but due to changes in the direction of the school board, the information presentation was suspended.
