Software installation model

Model Description:

Headquaters (or where the business chooses to place the server – can be data centers)

–        On the server will be installed BRAVO ® 8 Software including Software Program and Database.

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

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

Factory / Subsidiaries / Warehouse

–        The computers that are allowed to access the software (Clients) will be declared (machine name, user ID) and installed Software Programs for users to access and input data online to the corresponding BASIS UNIT on the server via a high-speed network connection .

–        Directory used for the whole system.

–        There is no limit to the number of clients on the LAN at these locations.

The Users will be managed and decentralized in detail according to each user’s role in the relevant departments. Each user or department will have its own layout design (interface) suitable for the management of each user or department.
