Using Ram Centric ERP to Define ERP Software Alternative

Call it ram centric ERP, ram centric computing, seamless workflow, workflow ERP, seamless workflow ERP, seamlessly integrated accounting system, or unERP, all of the descriptions fit.Regardless of what we call it, it represents the most commanding change in information systems in the past 40 years. Businesses can now have the simplest, most powerful seamlessly integrated ERP system ever to be offered in the North American marketplace. Unmatched for its corporate consolidation characteristics, this ram centric ERP seamlessly consolidates all of a company’s data as well as the management team that runs it. Everyone works from the same data so everyone is on the same page. Ironically, the features that so nicely consolidate the entire company also promote geographic expansion and operational diversity like no other ERP system has ever done before.Promoting pristine data capture, the recording of every transaction captures the who, what, when and where of every thing that happens, the complete set of data characteristics required to analyze virtually anything you will ever need or will ever want to know about your business.The following list forms a brief summation of the primary items of interest. As you read through the list, we encourage you to stop and think for a moment about each item. Think about what each item might do for your company. Think about the time saved, the ease of use afforded by each item, and the savings afforded by each. Many of the items listed will be new to you. As a result some of the items will also appear meaningless, but only because it is new descriptive of new concepts in ERP system design and processing methodology. The impact of each and every one of these items is significant and the sum of all is nothing short of colossal.We have grouped them into four categories. Please think attentively about each heading as you read each line on the list of items associated with it1. The factors we eliminated that the ERP and Information systems industry takes for granteda. Integration services
b. Annual and or bi-annual modular updates
c. Long and/or otherwise excessive installation times
d. Source files for internally created data transactions
e. History files for internally created data transactions
f. Successive/multiple screens for data entry of a single record
g. Annual, general systematic data removal2. The factors we have reduced well below the industry’s standard.a. Implementation and Operational Complexity
b. The Numbers of detail files required for semi-static summary files may be as low as just three in total – inventory, general ledger and payroll YTD.
c. Update programs to move corporate transaction data from source to active files as we have come to know them have all but disappeared and then in only rare circumstances
d. The number of update programs to move data details from active to history files has been highly reduced because the entire concept of traditional history files is eliminated
e. The numbers of programs required to update summary database files such as general ledger, inventory and employee payroll is reduced to just one.3. The factors we have raised well above the industry’s standard.a. Data quality

l. User assist help-yourself help textThis may be an uncommon way to define ERP software but obviously, iNfinite Answers is an alternative product and service, an alternative to typical off-the-shelf accounting modules and an alternative to typical ERP systems. iNfinite Answers is designed to drive for efficiency, productivity and innovation in service companies, fabricators, light process or job cost manufacturing and all manner of construction. Due to its highly generic nature and ability to rapidly adapt to new environments and uses, many more niches will be discovered.Several pages have been written about many of these topics and are presented in our public access web site. The benefits of each item are frequently shared by other items. In fact, some items cannot exist without others but the most significant of all is where we started at the first of this presentation.define ERP software

What Are The Greatest Changes In Shopping In Your Lifetime

What are the greatest changes in shopping in your lifetime? So asked my 9 year old grandson.

As I thought of the question the local Green Grocer came to mind. Because that is what the greatest change in shopping in my lifetime is.

That was the first place to start with the question of what are the greatest changes in shopping in your lifetime.

Our local green grocer was the most important change in shopping in my lifetime. Beside him was our butcher, a hairdresser and a chemist.

Looking back, we were well catered for as we had quite a few in our suburb. And yes, the greatest changes in shopping in my lifetime were with the small family owned businesses.

Entertainment While Shopping Has Changed
Buying butter was an entertainment in itself.
My sister and I often had to go to a favourite family grocer close by. We were always polite as we asked for a pound or two of butter and other small items.

Out came a big block of wet butter wrapped in grease-proof paper. Brought from the back of the shop, placed on a huge counter top and included two grooved pates.

That was a big change in our shopping in my lifetime… you don’t come across butter bashing nowadays.

Our old friendly Mr. Mahon with the moustache, would cut a square of butter. Lift it to another piece of greaseproof paper with his pates. On it went to the weighing scales, a bit sliced off or added here and there.

Our old grocer would then bash it with gusto, turning it over and over. Upside down and sideways it went, so that it had grooves from the pates, splashes going everywhere, including our faces.

My sister and I thought this was great fun and it always cracked us up. We loved it, as we loved Mahon’s, on the corner, our very favourite grocery shop.

Grocery Shopping
Further afield, we often had to go to another of my mother’s favourite, not so local, green grocer’s. Mr. McKessie, ( spelt phonetically) would take our list, gather the groceries and put them all in a big cardboard box.

And because we were good customers he always delivered them to our house free of charge. But he wasn’t nearly as much fun as old Mr. Mahon. Even so, he was a nice man.

All Things Fresh
So there were very many common services such as home deliveries like:

• Farm eggs

• Fresh vegetables

• Cow’s milk

• Freshly baked bread

• Coal for our open fires

Delivery Services
A man used to come to our house a couple of times a week with farm fresh eggs.

Another used to come every day with fresh vegetables, although my father loved growing his own.

Our milk, topped with beautiful cream, was delivered to our doorstep every single morning.

Unbelievably, come think of it now, our bread came to us in a huge van driven by our “bread-man” named Jerry who became a family friend.

My parents always invited Jerry and his wife to their parties, and there were many during the summer months. Kids and adults all thoroughly enjoyed these times. Alcohol was never included, my parents were teetotallers. Lemonade was a treat, with home made sandwiches and cakes.

The coal-man was another who delivered bags of coal for our open fires. I can still see his sooty face under his tweed cap but I can’t remember his name. We knew them all by name but most of them escape me now.

Mr. Higgins, a service man from the Hoover Company always came to our house to replace our old vacuum cleaner with an updated model.

Our insurance company even sent a man to collect the weekly premium.

People then only paid for their shopping with cash. This in itself has been a huge change in shopping in my lifetime.

In some department stores there was a system whereby the money from the cash registers was transported in a small cylinder on a moving wire track to the central office.

Some Of The Bigger Changes
Some of the bigger changes in shopping were the opening of supermarkets.

• Supermarkets replaced many individual smaller grocery shops. Cash and bank cheques have given way to credit and key cards.

• Internet shopping… the latest trend, but in many minds, doing more harm, to book shops.

• Not many written shopping lists, because mobile phones have taken over.

On a more optimistic note, I hear that book shops are popular again after a decline.

Personal Service Has Most Definitely Changed
So, no one really has to leave home, to purchase almost anything, technology makes it so easy to do online.
And we have a much bigger range of products now, to choose from, and credit cards have given us the greatest ease of payment.

We have longer shopping hours, and weekend shopping. But we have lost the personal service that we oldies had taken for granted and also appreciated.

Because of their frenetic lifestyles, I have heard people say they find shopping very stressful, that is grocery shopping. I’m sure it is when you have to dash home and cook dinner after a days work. I often think there has to be a better, less stressful way.

My mother had the best of both worlds, in the services she had at her disposal. With a full time job looking after 9 people, 7 children plus her and my dad, she was very lucky. Lucky too that she did not have 2 jobs.
