| |......Technical Overview :
Retail ERP is a product that caters to the need of Retail segment of any fraternity. Retail ERP, developed in Microsoft Visual Basic
Why Microsoft Visual Basic?
There are quite a number of reasons:
VB is not only a language but also primarily an integrated, interactive development environment ("IDE").
The VB-IDE has been highly optimized to support rapid application development ("RAD"). It is particularly easy to develop graphical user interfaces and to connect them to handler functions provided by the application.
The graphical user interface of the VB-IDE provides intuitively appealing views for the management of the program structure in the large and the various types of entities (classes, modules, procedures, forms...).
VB provides a comprehensive interactive and context-sensitive online help system.
When editing program texts the "IntelliSense" technology informs you in a little popup window about the types of constructs that may be entered at the current cursor location.
VB is a component integration language, which is attuned to Microsoft's Component Object Model ("COM").
COM components can be written in different languages and then integrated using VB.
Interfaces of COM components can be easily called remotely via Distributed COM ("DCOM"), which makes it easy to construct distributed applications.
COM components can be embedded in / linked to your application's user interface and also in/to stored documents (Object Linking and Embedding "OLE", "Compound Documents").

Retail ERP’s backbone is the very powerful SQL database. We utilize SQL Server 2000, which supports hundreds and thousands of users or tens of gigabytes of data. It also offers enterprise class reliability along with dynamic backup and restore. It is the most popular relational database on Microsoft Windows. It also has significant new security enhancements, by not only offering the highest level of security available in the industry, but by also making it much easier to achieve that level.
According to Microsoft, “SQL Server 2000 can give you over one million transactions”
Retail ERP also supports Microsoft Access database as back-end, which is very handy for single-user or a small-scale user.
Retail ERP incorporates Crystal Reports, an industry standard, that changes the way you interact with your data. We have standard reports with unique criteria for analysis and decision-making. Each report highlights the key components of your business data and provides you with a bird’s eye view of the direction your business is heading. Reports are broken in to parts of your business, such as List, Sales, Purchase, Stocks, Accounts and Final Accounts reports so it's easy for you to grab the report you need. Crystal Reports provides more data connectivity and control options. You can integrate Crystal Reports with your B2B or B2C applications via XML access or export. You can also process reports faster and use network resources more efficiently since Crystal Reports uses multi-threaded report processing capabilities. Retail ERP users have the opportunity to export reports formatted the way they want. Export reports to popular formats, including:
Our ReportManager uses your inventory’s data to create reports. One easy glance shows you how much stock is currently on customer orders, on vendor orders and the stock in hand to sale. The Sales Reports of Customer and Products give you a strong business tool to further evaluate your business processes and increase sales. Easily set the criteria for each report generation. Retailplus has reports that give you an in depth view of your inventory, that assist you in the analysis of the data from your returns department, alert you about product re-order levels, organize your customer price lists and much more. A complete breakdown of you data enhances your business’s capability in understanding the data flow.
Retail ERP also uses XML technology.
The use of XML—an open standard managed by the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C)—removes barriers to data sharing and software integration. XML makes it easy to exchange data, and our design technology enables us to customize Retail ERP functionality by little changes in these XML files. Though an external entity, these supporting XML files form the basic support for Retail ERP
