Enterprise also provides a series of modules designed for specific industries, all with the same potential for interaction with other parts of the system. It uses an unrivaled range of technologies to extend the software availability throughout your organization and beyond, at the same time reducing reliance on costly interfaces between applications thereby offering the lowest total cost of ownership available in the mid-range.

Mobile Inventory

Mobile Inventory is an application that provides you with a real-time client for Enterprise by HansaWorld specifically for inventory taking. You can enter inventory items manually, or using a barcode scanner suitable for use with iPod touch, such as Linea-Pro from IPC Peripherals.

When using a Linea-Pro with your iPod touch, scanning a barcode enters the appropriate item details automatically. All you need to do is specify the quantity manually, or simply scan multiple items of the same kind.

You can use Mobile Inventory to count either your entire inventory or any part of it. Record details of quantity of Items, the Items themselves, and any relevant serial numbers. Restrict your count by location, or by type of stock.

Mobile Inventory collects all details in a central database. If you are using Enterprise by HansaWorld, then all items counted are automatically added to Enterprise’s database. If you are using an alternative accounting and/or Enterprise Resource Planning system, files can be sent automatically by the central Mobile Inventory server for import to the alternative system.

Mobile Inventory is suitable for all environments where inventory taking is done in a location requiring a mobile device. This Includes:

  • Any warehouse equipped with a wireless network
  • Shops
  • Trade shows
  • Vans

Mobile POS

Mobile POS is an application that provides you with a way to process sales using an iPod touch, iPhone or iPad. You can enter details of what has been sold either manually, or using a barcode scanner suitable for use with the iPod touch, such as the Linea-Pro from IPC Peripherals.

When using a Linea-Pro with your iPod touch, scanning a barcode enters the appropriate item details automatically, including item description and selling price. Swiping a credit card creates customer details in the central database, and allows Mobile POS to process the payment automatically.

When using an iPhone or iPad without a barcode scanner, Mobile POS offers you a list of products or services available for sale from which you can make a selection. You can also add customer details from a similar list. Completion of payment automatically prints to a network printer.

Mobile POS collects all details in a central database. If you are using Enterprise by HansaWorld, then all sales are automatically added to Enterprise’s database. If you are using an alternative accounting and/or Enterprise Resource Planning system, files can be sent automatically by the central Mobile POS server for import to the alternative system.

Mobile POS is suitable for all environments where salespeople need the mobility offered by an iPod touch, iPhone or an iPad. This includes:

  • Shops, where the salespeople need to move away from the sales counter
  • Trade shows, where no computers are available for entering orders
  • Traveling salespeople, whether selling from vans or simply those that visit customers

Mobile Reports

Mobile Reports is an application that provides you with a real-time client for Enterprise by HansaWorld specifically for reporting. You can run any of the roughly 400 standard Enterprise reports in real-time using the data held on your main server.

Additionally you can run any reports you have set up using the Nominal Ledger reporting engine or the Report Generator module, and any reports programmed in Enterprise’s programming language.

All the reports can be run, displayed and navigated directly on your iPhone, iPod touch or iPad using Apple’s multi-touch gesture controls in portrait or landscape mode.

Mobile Reports allows you to stay in touch with your business by running any report from your central server in real-time from anywhere in the world. All you need is a mobile network.

HansaWorld has teamed up with the biggest name in Business Intelligence, QlikTech and has connected the database into their business intelligence tools.

Benefits of Business Intelligence and Integration Solutions by Hansaworld

  • Flexible: Many different measures

SmartView Business Intelligence + Advantages

Instant queries

It takes time to set up and run any queries in traditional Business Intelligence tools. They use data cube technologies, requiring technical users to prepare data in appropriate formats usually the day before a query can be accessed. Not HansaWorld SmartView - all queries are run in-memory, meaning that each graphic and table can be refreshed in real-time.

Immediate deployment of BI

Since the templates are already written, all a HansaWorld customer has to do to start SmartView is install the software. You can deploy the full suite in a four hour project, to include the necessary training! Large data volumes HansaWorld SmartView Business Intelligence uses sophisticated loading techniques to allow it to be run on even large data volumes. HansaWorld keeps track of data that was loaded last time, and only loads the latest changes.

Easy to use Business Intelligence solution

HansaWorld SmartView is highly intuitive, working the way your mind does. Just click on any component within SmartView, in order to analyze it further. For example, click on a region in a map, and all other graphics and tables will recast their results just for that region.

Interactive analysis

The approach of clicking into different dimensions means that what used to take several separate reports now takes a few mouse clicks. Use SmartView Business Intelligence solution to understand trends - for example, if you see that sales in the South West are down, you can analyze this by product category. If you track this to a specific product category, you can then recast all graphics for just this product category, perhaps discovering the cause to be one customer having withdrawn purchases of that product category in all regions.

Inline windows

HansaWorld has written a web browser, so screens from the external Business Intelligence applications can be displayed inside Enterprise. Users can configure links from their Personal Desktop and from Key Performance Indicators - these links will open any URL, so they can be set up to open the relevant dashboard from within SmartView Business Intelligence solution.

Hardware requirements

HansaWorld SmartView Business Intelligence solution needs to be installed on a separate Windows server from the main Enterprise implementation, but on the same local area network. Please talk to your local HansaWorld distributor about additional requirements.

iPhone client

It is even possible to deploy HansaWorld SmartView Business Intelligence solution on an iPhone, using Qlikview’s iPhone client. This delivers real-time Business Intelligence straight to your iPhone.

Enterprise offers optimised put-away, whereby it will automatically suggest the optimum location for items received. Similarly picking lists can suggest the optimum pick location. Picking lists are sorted by position, to make picking faster.

Enterprise also offers an interface for forklift drivers, designed to be run on a tablet device mounted on the forklift, running on a wireless network.
