Solutions...Not Just Software ®

Chicago-Soft, Ltd. (a privately held corporation) has developed and marketed productivity and management software for mainframe, Windows, and web-based corporate systems. In the simplest terms, Chicago-Soft’s software helps computer programmers, system analysts and network administrators manage their corporate system’s operations in a timely, efficient, and cost-effective manner.

Founded in 1982, Chicago-Soft has been responsible for several highly popular and widely respected products including MVS/QuickRef ®, the world’s fastest on-line documentation and reference facility for programmers and operators, and NETSPY*, the world’s leading MVS/VTAM performance monitor.

Small and specialized, the company has developed and continually enhances its product line with a strong reliance on customer input and feedback.

In the case of MVS/Quick-Ref ®, the product database has evolved from an initial 40,000 lines of IBM reference information to a product with more than 100 million lines of documentation, including support for more than 500 products from over 50 major independent software vendors.

Historically, Chicago-Soft has introduced and managed several additional products. WinMiser and WinMiser Pro were introduced for the PC market for users of Windows 3.X; and Dllagator was introduced in 1996 to help network administrators solve DLL conflicts among their users. In 1999, Chicago-Soft introduced Walls, a resource primarily geared for corporate clients who need stable application environments on their networks and with their users.

Continuously profitable since 1983, Chicago-Soft has more than 500 corporate clients in countries around the world, including over 100 of the Fortune 500 corporations.
