Cosmos Online Ltd works in the development of software and in general the provision
of services in the Internet and mobile telephony sector.
It was founded by the physicist and computer programmer Anastasios Chatzikrystallis,
who has a long experience since the very early stages of the IT market.
Since 1991 we have been building businesses software for PCs and local area networks (LANs).
Since 1995, being among the very first Internet users in the country,
and foreseeing the potential of the global network, we have focused exclusively
on related technologies and especially on programming in the new environment.
The verification of our forecast makes us today one of the oldest and most
experienced web developers.
All these 23 years we have developed internet software:
- Of every kind and complexity
From simple websites to complex applications automating business process,
large data transfer, interfacing with corporate ERP systems, bank back-end IT systems,
SMS platforms for mobile telephony services providers,
- For any type of customer
From small to medium enterprises, to ports, universities, chambers, multinational companies,
international consortium of companies,
- In any kind of environment, local and international
From web content management software (CMS) to complex critical mission applications
that either gave simultaneous access to partners from different countries,
or connected IT systems in different countries.
Important points of Cosmos Online projects were:
The very first in the country, real time broadcasting of parliamentary elections results (1996)
and local elections results (1998). The projects were implemented using two different
infrastructures, methodologies and tools, while the 2nd one had used infrastructure
in Volos, Florida and New York (USA).
- The implementation of an extranet for a well-known multinational petroleum company.
Participation in the planning team of ARIADNI eGovernment project.
This project was the implementation of the Citizen Service Centers (KEP),
was awarded the 2007 Good Practice Award and was finalist
candidate for the European eGovernment Award 2007.
The very first time in the country of implementation and presentation in public
of MMS messages for mobile telephony.
Their presentation was made through simulator during the Info-Com 2002
since their development was achieved long before the mobile carriers
created the necessary infrastructure for their real transmission.
The implementation of the e-Demography project for the Laboratory of Demographic and Social
Analysis of the University of Thessaly. The core of the project was
the digitization, import in a large database and presentation
on the internet of all demographic data of Greece since 1940 until today,
in the form of tables, graphs and demographic maps.
It was the very first time a demographic project of such kind was implemented in Greece
and the demographic portal is one of the largest at least on Balkan level.
The development of software for on-line connection of the University
of Thessaly with the back-end IT systems of large commercial bank
for bulk transfer of critical financial data.
Since the early 90s we have been involved in training as trainerss in a great number
of vocational training seminars.
For many years we had cooperation as trainers with the Hellenic Center for Productivity
(ELKEPA) and the public Vocational Traing Institute (IEK) of Volos,
while we occasionally collaborated with the National Organization of Small and Medium
Enterprises (EOMMEX), the Technical Chamber, and many other professional training organizations.
We taught some thousand hours in many dozens of seminars where we trained hundreds
of public and private sector executives, such as emploees of local authorities, justice,
tax authorities, telecom organization and also
police officers, customs officers, bank executives, customs agents,
and unemployed young people and scientists.
The subjects we taught were programming with Clipper (mainly in IEK schools for programmers),
database design and administration, operating systems (MS-DOS, Windows, Novell),
use and programming on Lotus 123 and Excel), word proccessing (Ami-Pro, MS-Word), etc.
As part of a seminar we wrote a book "LOTUS 123"
which starts from the basics of spreadsheets,
until advanced programming with macro commands.
We also wrote many small books about all the subjects we taught.
Within our cooperation with vocational training institutes
we built software for seminars management as well as for
computer-based training (CBT).
