Resource Manager

SOFTWORX has been incorporating the ROBAC (role base access control) principal of security in all of our products since 1992 and has only recently become recognized as the most secure method of ensuring department / user controls.

How Does It Work? Each module and its associated programs may be assigned up to 99 different user access codes. Each user may have a separate user-defined security level for each of those modules or programs.


Jill works in accounts payable, Bob works in the shipping/receiving department. Jill may view the status of purchase order receipts, print reports, etc. but does not perform any actual receiving of the merchandise. Bob receives the materials based on his packing slip. Each purchase order receiver is assigned a unique receiver number as materials are not always shipped complete. After Bob has completed his receiving, Jill may now perform the invoice entry. The system will build the invoice based on receivers so Jill does not have to enter each line item detail thus increasing her productivity. The system automatically verifies the original purchase order, receiver, and cost of each unit within the system.
