What is the Tandis CORE?
Every solution we design and construct has a common central core containing standard functionality and information specific to your presentation and data handling needs. What defines each application and makes it unique are the various modules and data definitions that surround and interact with the core. This is where we deliver the business functionality that assists with the day to day operation of your company. Modules can be added, changed, deleted or easily upgraded to stay in synch with your changing business needs.
The CORE Offers: Consistent Proven Database Performance; Fully Customizable Modules; A Fluid and Intuitive User Interface; Staged Implementation and Ongoing Support.
The basic CORE components common to our applications programs are as follows:
Standard Lookup Tables
Before you begin using your application the first thing you do is enter or import your company specific data into the base tables. This is where your basic operational information is stored. The Lookup Tables contain everything from your company details, employee list, vendors, suppliers, customers, security preferences, ISO/Government requirements, DHS requirements, and any other information that would be used by your custom modules. The Lookup Tables offer the benefit of single source entry and remove data redundancy by allowing the operator to make data selections as opposed to keying.
The ability to track inventory in real-time is essential when it comes to making important business decisions. The inventory table is capable of receiving and/or retrieving data from a variety of sources: RFID, Barcode, Internet, Mobile, Manual entry, or any other electronic system you may have in place. In addition the module was designed to handle inventory for a variety of different business types from retail to manufacturing and from perishable to non-perishable products. The application ensures your most critical data is automatically updated, allowing you to make the correct business decision quickly and easily. Capable of handling multiple locations, this fully scalable module is important for any business where inventory management is critical to success.
