produced by 1C Company in 1C:Enterprise 8 software system.
The unique composition of business functionality, applied
solutions development and administration means, software integration
and data exchange tools provided by 1C:Enterprise platform offers
outstanding possibilities for rapid application development (RAD) and

platform to appear across former USSR territory.
For general information on 1C:Enterprise 8 software system see

and introduction of business applications due to using proven
functionality implemented in the boxed applied solutions; this also
reduces costs of vertical solutions the costs are significantly lower
