The history of the BASIS family of products

Introduced in the 1980s, the company’s first product was a development environment for Business BASIC. Together with COBOL, it was the most widely used programming language for business applications at the time.
The product generations “PRO/5” and “Visual PRO/5” dominated in the 1990s.
The year 2000 saw the birth of the object-oriented BBj development environment for the Java Virtual Machine. It still is the core of our constantly growing BBx family of products.

BBj is backward compatible with earlier BASIS technology generations, going back to the nineteen-eighties. We always keep upgrade paths into the 21st century open for our customers.

The BASIS modules BBx Portal, BBx Scanner, BBx Welcome, and BBx Voice complete the BASIS product family. They can be used with any business solution that is capable of communicating with Java, regardless of whether they were created with BBj or other tools.
