Branch and Warehouse Information
All dashboard views can be run to display information for a branch or warehouse and in some cases for multiple branches or warehouses at the same time. The standard STRATIX ERP user security is applied to ensure that the users can only view information for a branch or warehouse for which they are enabled.
STRATIX/ONE can be used as-is for quick and easy deployment, or for companies that wish to modify or create supplemental dashboards, STRATIX/ONE can be licensed in conjunction with STRATIX/BI.
When using STRATIX/BI, companies will have view access to all the data from the STRATIX/ONE data-warehouses. See STRATIX/BI for more information.
The STRATIX/ONE data-warehouse includes a reporting database that is built in real-time by the STRATIX ERP. This allows for real-time dashboard views and reduces the need for nightly utilities to build the reporting data-warehouse.
