Customization: Caché uniquely combines robust object and relational technologies. Using object technology, we have been able to build useful and meaningful data models that form the basis for a dynamic suite of customizable financial modules.

    journal entries at given time intervals (or on-demand).
  • Full transactional analysis with drill-down to source
    documents and transaction sets.
  • Summary information and analysis on demand.

    manager for financial transaction postings.
  • Multiple budget analysis and reporting including foreign
    currency group consolidation and reporting consolidation

Remote Access and E-Commerce

WirelessORCA has been designed to use the industry standard TCP/IP protocol for all interfaces. This avoids the need to 'install' specific software on a client machine. Multiple interface access points are offered while ensuring security profiles are enforced. Specifically, this allows for:
  • Remote management and support of ORCA systems.
  • Intranet access (staff) as users via web browser or
    terminal session.
  • Internet access (trading partners, e.g. customers) as users
    with limited security allowing product price and availability
    enquiries, order placement, etc.
  • Internet access (public at large) via dynamic HTML access
    to product catalogue and "shopping cart" functionality.
  • Automated distribution of "commercial documents", i.e.
    purchase orders, payment advices, sales invoices,
    debtor statements, etc, to suppliers and customers by internet email.
