As a SIBOL user,
your basic requirements are a PC, 56K modem and access to the internet
via SIBOLís ISP or any other ISP.
Together with our
consultant, you decide which modules you require to meet the needs of
your business. These are:
Payable - Creditors
Receivable - Debtors
Entry including Sales Statistics
and Lot Tracking
Currency - Creditors and Debtors
PLUS a full MRPII
Manufacturing system, if required.
You may determine
that you require six modules, however, decide to initially implement 3
with the balance to be phased in over a period of time.
We would then determine:
- The number of concurrent
users and establish a training schedule.
- Identify any software
modification required to meet your specific needs.
- Depending on the
size and nature of your business, the most efficient and cost effective
means of communication between the ISP and also between branches, manufacturing
facilities etc., communication could be via dial up, ISDN, Diginet or
a combination of all three.
- After completion
of the above, the final phase would be the transfer of data and SIBOL
can provide this service. Once completed, you dial in to your ISP and
log in to the system.
you DO NOT require a server on your site as your data is stored on a high
security server within SIBOLís ISP network and is backed up 5 days
a week and on a six week cycle. For further security, your data is also
backed up daily on to a remote server. Very large companies may, however,
request their own dedicated server at SIBOLís ISP.
is operational, you establish your own internal security via password
controls, as if you had a server on site.
