Inventory Pro Online (IPOL) is a web browser-based version of our Inventory Pro for Windows System. IPOL has the same functionality as Inventory Pro for Windows plus much more. Inventory, Purchasing, Shipping, kitting with bill of materials, assets, leasing. IPOL can be run on a local Intranet (internal use only) or globally on the Internet/World Wide Web (www). IPOL can be run by itself (stand-alone) or can be integrated with the standard SQL Server Edition of Inventory Pro for Windows. IPOL provides your business with an affordable business to business (B2B), e-commerce, and business to commerce (B2C) inventory program. This allows your staff, suppliers, customers, and potential customers to see the data they need in real time-no matter where they are in the world, All they need is an authenticated connection to your network. IPOL will assist you in the management of your business logistics including movement and exchange of products, services, and money. IPOL streamlines and improves internal company communications by allowing everyone to see the data in real time. IPOL also brings your suppliers and customer into the communications "loop" through controlled access (username and password) to only the parts of the system you want them to see. This facilitates vendor managed inventory (VMI) of vital supplies to your existing processes without having "annoying" vendor phone calls and on-site visits to count and inspect current inventory levels. IPOL does not need to be installed on client PCs. The master system resides permanently on your server (or CISS's server if we host the application for you), and the installation procedure consists only of receiving an access username/password. The user simply types the URL (web address) of the system into Netscape or Internet Explorer to gain access to the login screen. This provides you with minimal overhead in deploying the application to your user community. Updates to the system are only applied to the server, and visits to client PCs are never required. This is a support person's dream. IPOL is a full featured warehouse management system (WMS) and also has a full featured Transportation Management System (TMS) called Rater. The TMS features a database of freight rates that can be optimized for load tendering to the low cost carrier. The Rater also has load tendering and updates through EDI, yard system, track and trace, delivery metrics, returns and claims, fuel surcharge.
