Hormel Foods Standardizes on My-T-Soft® Onscreen Keyboard User Interface


PASO ROBLES, CA. - IMG, the primary supplier of onscreen keyboard user interfaces worldwide, announced today that it has sold an Enterprise Software License to Hormel Foods. Hormel becomes the latest major corporation in the food industry to incorporate IMG’s My-T-Soft user interface at its facilities.

 The Hormel enterprise software license is just the latest in over 16 years of successful OEM Partner co-operative sales projects for IMG. On this project, IMG worked with Roper Mobile Technology, of Tempe, Arizona, to deliver a customer-centric solution.

The My-T-Soft (My-Typing-Soft Keyboard) Build-A-Board System offers a consistent cross-platform onscreen keyboard user interface that is fully customizable and programmable for various hardware / software platforms. It allows customers to control user input at any point of any application and maintain a higher level of security than with a traditional physical keyboard or membrane panel. The main focus of the product is to provide a controlled user interface, integrated at the lowest level of the operating system for best performance, reliability, and security, on any industrial, kiosk, mobile, pen, rugged, tablet, or touch screen based system or application supporting those devices.

The My-T-Soft Build-A-Board System is ideal for use in environments such as automation, field service, food, instrumentation, in-vehicle, kiosk, laboratory, logistic, medical, military, mobile, pharmaceutical, ruggedized, utility, warehousing, whiteboard, or other extremely clean, dirty, or hazardous interactive user environment.

The latest release of the My-T-Soft / Build-A-Board System provides support for Windows CE thru 7 (including XPembedded), Linux, and Mac, with other O/S platforms in development. A thin client version for Citrix / MS Terminal Server / Remote Desktop is available as My-T-Soft TS. Custom keyboard layouts can be designed with the Build-A-Board Keyboard Designer Tool, and an SDK Developers Integration Kit is included.
