However, based on the experience deployed for businesses operating in the field of automobile production and business, production (Factory) and business (Office) are usually fully equipped with facilities. Technical infrastructure and Internet connection are synchronous, so that data is updated and controlled immediately, improving the efficiency of management, BRAVO will implement a centralized data installation model (Online).

Model Description

headquarters (or where the business has servers – possibly data centers)

–        On the server (Server) will be installed BRAVO Software®7 including Software Program and Database.

–       Data will be partitioned into basic units: Head Office, Branch, Showroom, Subsidiaries. The software supports separate financial statements and tax reports for each unit.

–      The function of adjusting and excluding internal accounts and merging data helps administrators to view the consolidated financial statements of the whole company.


–        Computers that are allowed to access the software (Client machine) will be declared (machine name, user ID) and installed Software program for users to access and input data online to the corresponding service provider on the server through a high-speed network connection.

–        List of common use for the whole system.

–        There is no limit to the number of clients in the LAN system of these locations.

The Users will be managed and decentralized in detail according to each user’s role in the relevant departments. Each user user/user group user or department will have its own layout design (interface) suitable for the management of each user or department. The software solution BRAVO  allows to connect remote locations through the Internet line system with basic requirements for transmission line (common ADSL network). Data stored centrally on the Server will be backed up periodically or continuously through the software’s automatic backup mechanism.

Recommendation: To ensure the stability and safety of data when operating the software, BRAVO recommends equipping an additional backup server (the backup server) serves two main tasks: replacing the main server operating the system and backing up the software’s data. On the main server and the backup server integrate equivalent physical hard drives and are configured according to hard drive Raid solutions: Raid 0, Raid 1, Raid 10).
