Omnis Software is preparing to ship a raft of new products this autumn in a move that it hopes will take it back into the black.
The company, formerly known as Blyth Software, has experienced falling sales and made losses for most of the past three years.
But, it now hopes that products such as its Omnis Studio development tool, which enables programmers to build applications using both ActiveX and Java, will revive its fortunes.
Version 1.1 of the offering, which is due to be launched at the Object World conference in San Francisco in late July will include more Web functionality than its predecessor, which was unveiled only last month.
The company is also currently working on a secure component-assembly environment, which will be targeted at developers creating "browserless" Web applications. Such packages will have their own user nterfaces, but automate the process of accessing a Web site.
But Omnis is additionally looking at moving into new markets such as information asset management and data publishing on the Web, although it still has no delivery dates for such products.
The firm is also evaluating whether to licence back technology from its resellers and is currently talking to one of them about taking a configurable order entry package.
