Choosing a Profiling Tool
Visicom needed a profiling and debugging tool to help determine why they had slow performance when displaying routines. "We found that AQtime had very good reviews and after using the trial version we were amazed at how easy it was to use," said Nicolas Xanthopoulos, CTO, from Visicom.
"Nearly Impossible Without AQtime"
"We use AQtime to find and resolve performance issues and bugs in our Dynamic Toolbar for Internet Explorer®. Although we don’t work with it on a daily basis, we have found it to be very useful when troubleshooting bottlenecks and performance issues," said Nicolas.
"For example, we could not manually find a specific routine that was slowing down our Dynamic Toolbar application. When we used AQtime, it was a lot faster to track the problem and then resolve it. We were able to improve Dynamic Toolbar's speed by about 40% or 50%. The bottleneck was creating a nasty flickering effect on the bar and by identifying the procedure and by resolving the bottleneck, the flickering problem was resolved. We had some slow drawing procedures that were causing this bottleneck and they would have been nearly impossible to find without AQtime."
"It’s the best tool on the market to test, track and improve the speed in our application. The price is very affordable and it saved us a lot of time by giving us detailed results for each procedure and problem"

Faster To Market
Nicolas explained how AQtime saves money and time: "With AQtime, we can now track problems quicker so it saves us a lot of time and money when searching for a solution. By reducing our QA time, we can now release builds quicker, saving time-to-market with our Dynamic Toolbar product."
