No more... Waiting. Hand-off and Queue Transactions for Transfer Out, In, Receipts, and One Step PO’s.
Instead of watching a thermometer bar inch across the screen, DataWorks now allows you to queue your transaction so numbers are crunched in the digital background. That means you are free to enjoy a cup of coffee, dive into another transaction, or read our fantastic help doc.
Suggested Transfers. Scheduled and Auto-Magical.
Suggested Transfers can now be scheduled to run and prepare all it’s work during the middle of night, rather than pushing buttons and waiting for things to happen during the daylight hours.
Go! Faster! Purchase Order Input!
We put your data on a diet, stuck our code on a treadmill, and kept training our routines until we cut the data entry time in half. It is very obvious when entering products with many colors and sizes.
System echos its heartbeat to DataWorks.
Each system is now equipped with a heart monitor that lets DataWorks triage team know if your autonomic systems are firing on all neurons. For instance, if sales are not importing, we are notified. We will know before you even knew, that our know-it-all’s with the know-how fixed a new issue. Wait, what just happened?
Inventory Report. Facility List Filter.
You loved in on the Sales Reports system. You have asked for it many times. Here is it, now appearing in all of its glory - the Facility List Filter, where you can group your stores together in any joyful combination that you might desire.
More document control.
We added support so that your expert user can reconfigure the requisition, fulfillment and retail adjustment (you might call them markdowns) documents. Your expert already had access to transfers, purchases and receipts, this feature lets them tweak all the knobs.
Real Time Inventory Exports. To Cache or Not to Cache. That is the question.
A couple years ago we came up with a very clever technique for polling thousands of individual stores during a single end of business day window. (Thats right, DataWorks is polling 1000’s of stores at one time) The solution was really quite brilliant, but it overlooked talking to a single store in real time. Opps. Our bad. Our new JSON Web service interface can work in near real time (like every 120 seconds) and the clever technique for polling thousand of stores at a time was getting in the way of its agility to pass new information out to our web service. So this build fixes that. If you are polling 100’s or 1000’s of stores in batch we can do that, and if you need to communicate in real time it can do that too.
MICROS Simphony 2. Oracle DB supported too.
We were first to market with our on property Simphony 2 interface. This was a big deal because there was (is) no Import API for that system. (Just to be clear, Oracle does have an API for Exports, just not one for updating menu items. And since we are in the updating menu item business, we created our own API). Our first install with Simphony 2 was back in March 2015. It has been run perfectly importing menu items and exporting sales. Our new version supports the Oracle database. Which makes lots of sense if you are Oracle and you bought MICROS for lots of cents.
