System Description
COLMAN is a fully developed solution, which can connect Branch offices / C&Fs / Depots / Consignment Distributors with the Head Office, using a proprietary and cost–effective technology and consolidate data from such remote locations and integrate them at the Head–office. The solution comprises of two main components

  • C&F / CD / Depot / Branch Application

This component provides connectivity to distributed C&F / CD / Depot / Branch locations with the Head Office. This will perform all Business Functions of these locations like Order Processing, Billing, Inventory update and Accounting. This application has a component that compresses and encrypts (using a proprietary technology) the transaction data and automatically sends it to the Head Office through the Internet at periodic intervals (freely definable: daily/weekly). Another application that resides at the Head Office pulls the data of the remote location from the Email / Internet layer and provides consolidated reports. This application also has various control features to protect the remote location from creating wrong account / product codes etc and also for restricting credit limits etc to make sure the C&F / CD / Depot / Branch performs efficiently.

  • Head Office Consolidation Application
