Administration dashboard facilitates take on and configuration of new organizations, most aspects of the application are configurable on a per organization basis using the administration dashboard.
Defined business facts are configured for an organization and loaded into the platform. Role based authorization is applied to individual facts and can be used to limit what facts are viewable by each authenticated user.
A deep organizational structure, such as division, region, branch etc. can also be configured, further role based restrictions can be applied based on the organizational hierarchy. The platform can be configured such that a branch manager can only see facts for his branch, while a regional manager can see all totals and individual branches belonging in his authorised region or division.
A mobile application provides visibility of the defined facts to authorised users and provides various controls for viewing and analyzing the current or historical data, viewing balancing exceptions, KPI charts, geo locations and maps etc.
A common and clearly defined set of REST web services supporting both XML and JSON as the transfer format, provide a means of loading and retrieving the data from the platform backend.
