Case History : BACK OFFICE SYSTEM FOR A POINT OF SALE

Bridge implemented a multi-company and multi-store application on Oracle Forms platform in 2004, aimed at functional coverage of the front-end area and featuring real-time data collection of cash registers and scales.

This system allows a number of large retail companies, operating across the country, to receive items, promotions and prices from centralised systems. The application was designed to feed the sales devices, print price labels and manage billing and returns.

The application can be centralized in multiple instances, each capable of holding more than one store. It is also possible to provide locally-based instances, generally recommended for large stores.

Not only this particular modular and flexible architecture allows pilots and progressive rollouts, but guarantees fast recovery on system crashing in all configurations.

Starting in 2016, the application has been converted into a web application with the support of jBWT Oracle Forms Converter, maintaining the existing functional approach and minimizing the need to train sales staff.

The conversion project involved 120 forms which are now usable in the new infrastructure.
