New in the TCU-3



1. Completely redesigned user interface.

Using the toolbar, similar to Office 2007 - ribbon. It includes all the available menu items similar to those in TCU-2. Now is also supported contextual menus, specific to each type of form as well as for reports.

In the documents and lists of documents introduced sidebar - a form element, which includes a list of attributes of a document previously known as header ("cap"). Use the sidebar to a more intuitive and compact layout of documents and their lists. In addition, the ability of the sidebar to appear and disappear (widening and narrowing) on ​​the screen when you need saving valuable screen space, by assigning a place to display a larger number of columns in the list.


2. A new model of working with reports.

Now reports can be saved as templates, which allow more flexibility to create a sample of any available reports, to keep the conditions of samples and used to create set of reports individually for each workplace. Supports custom reports - users can change the look report, limited to a predefined set of selected data.


3. Support for SQL-server technology.

TCU-3 has made a serious bid to increase productivity, sustainability and reliability of the network. Now, starting with the version of "Network" has the ability to create a database and work with it on the Microsoft SQL-server. You will be pleased to know that performance and stability with the data and the reliability of their storage technology company backed by Microsoft ©, which has become industry standards. Prefer them to the biggest financial companies in the world, require their systems of high reliability and performance, combined with ease of maintenance.


4. Further development of the role of the trade server.

One of the functional component of the system is the role of the trade server - collection and processing of sales in conjunction with an application running on the cashier's workplace - in stores with self-catering or without him. Moreover, processing of sales may take place in real time (with a stable connection with the cashier), and with a certain frequency (there is no permanent connection with the trading point). Full support for an unlimited number of jobs require installation of Microsoft SQL-server.


5. "Closing" payment-related documents.

Now paying the counter instruments may "close" a specific payment instrument, a reference to which can be specified in the current cash or commodity instrument. The idea is to list the documents to see a bunch of " document that gave birth to outstanding client - paper repay client". Possible relationship one-to-many, many-to-one. The simplest counter-documents include the following pairs: 1) Invoice - credit cash order and vice versa, 2) Invoice - expendable cash order and vice versa. As noted above, each of the pair can consist of several documents. For example, an Invoice can be "closed" several credit cash order - the amount of the payment of all FFP will be equal to the sum of the expenditure bill.


6. Support for data collection terminals.

There are specialized devices - data collection terminals (DCT), greatly facilitates the maintenance of rediscount at the outlet or control of goods on the shelves. The device consists of a functional memory parts, which include data about the product at point of sale (you can choose exactly which products will be made in memory of the DCT) and a barcode scanner, with which the product is identified in the database (in memory of the DCT). During the stocktaking in the DCT operator entered (from TCU, with a special module that plugs into a computer) the actual balances on point of sale. Search for the selected goods by using bar code scanner built into the DCT. Buttons to enter the remains of DCT on selected goods. After the conversion corrected data are unloaded at TCU (read from DCT), and then, based on data obtained formed the act of converting residues.


7. Flexible ligament reference prices.

When selling a product you are using a system of discounts? Reference prices involved in the pricing (5 of them and call them can be on-request, for example, Price1 - Retail, Price2 - Discount Cards, Price3 - Action) for each product may be dependent on the base price of this commodity. Setting the discount on Price2 10% of Price1, Price3 - 20% of Price1 etc. You can be sure that when you change Price1 adjust prices and associates - Price2 and Price3.


8. Backup the database.

Users of the database in the format of MS Access, can now use the built-in redundancy of the database, which also lets you share it with others (eg, mobile) workstations. For example, you can copy a database on a laptop, work at it with a program on the road, then return to base on the main job of keeping all the changes made by you during the trip. If necessary, you can use the backup (saved earlier) to analyze the changes made thereafter. If the database is stored in the format of SQL (TCU Network, TCU Ultra), it is possible to use standard tools SQL-Server to backup database or backup database using external scripts using T-SQL.



New in TCU-2 (different from the TCU-1)


TCU-2 - a brand new, completely revised system, continues the tradition TCU1.


1. Does not require MS Access.

TCU-2 is an independent installable application that does not require for its work in advance of predefined components.


2. Completely redesigned user interface.

System of upper menus and toolbars will make available to any transaction by one click. Menu style can be selected (Office 2000, Office XP, Office 2003, Native XP). Tables and lists supports context coloring. Each type of document in the list are displayed in different colors. Each product can be given its own font, which will be displayed in lists, reports and documents. Context menus will challenge any operation available with one touch. For example, to a bill to open the card movement of the product you are sufficiently from the context menu, select the item of the same name. System Drag-and-Drop will add items in the consignment by dragging and dropping from the main form. It is also possible to transfer goods from one product group to another - simply drag the item to the desired group. List (roster) of goods in the main form has developed a means of searching and filtering to find the desired item (or group of similar goods) now there is no difficulty. This is true for a list of documents, as well as for all directories. Sorting the lists are separated into two sides.


3. An improved model of the warehouse.

Now purchase products from different parties will automatically be shipped in the order they are received. Product of the early purchases will be sold sooner than later. If necessary, you can manually select a product for sale from the necessary parties to bypass the procurement priority.


4. Single list of documents.

In TCU2 introduced a unified concept of "document" that allows you to see documents of various types in a single list. Developed a means of filtering can separately display a certain type of documents (as in TCU1) and a few selected types (eg, at the same time show the overhead expense and acts of revaluation).


5. Weight, volume and related packaging.

Each product can be given the physical characteristics of weight and volume. In forming the expenditure invoice weight and volume are calculated, which allows optimal to allocate transport for loading and transportation. For items that can not be shipped without the associated container (eg beer as the liquid can not be sold without a glass bottle) is a built-in calculation and control-related packaging.


6. Conveying, routes, route sheets, mileage.

For each client in the directory can be specified delivery point (the number is unlimited). According to the point totals are calculated route and mileage. Based on the selected route is automatically generated routing. It includes all the overhead, in which delivery point lie on a given route. At the request of the operator in the routing sheet can also include overheads are not included in the route from the directory. The unique technology allows you to calculate the mileage to calculate the distance as accurately as possible, taking into account the specific features of itinerary.


7. Control of serial numbers - a very important point in trading home appliances, mobile phones, computer and office equipment.


8. Barcode support.

One product can have several barcodes, such as a bar code on the box and the barcode on the packaging unit. For any of these codes will be selected by one and the same item. The program not only supports current models of USB-scanners, and scanners, the previous standard OPOS. For the cashier's workplace, you can use a special application ShopDesc, specially designed for easy and convenient work place cash.


9. Support receipt printer.

Supports all models of printers of checks that are Windows-driver. It's also supported fiscal printers (registrars).


10. Separation of user access rights.

Powerful and flexible system allowing access to directories and documents allows you to configure access to only necessary for specific user information. For example, from 5 retail outlets, the user can be made available, only 3 can be set right on the posting of the document without the right to undo it and the subsequent correction.


11. Logging.

All user actions are tracked in a special journal. At the same time as his rights are fixed at the time of the transaction, the contents of the overhead at the time of posting. For example, if the document was carried out with one set of goods, then rolled back and fix, the journal will keep track of which items have been changed.


12. Checkpoint.

If you had a stock-taking and wish that no one could change the documents for the previous period, simply set a breakpoint on the last document of the period. All documents of the past period will not be accessible for editing. To stop the change, simply specify a checkpoint earlier in the document.


13. Support exchange with a PDA.

SoftKB implemented a system of mobile commerce applications and collect TCUMobile. Now sales agents and mobile vendors be able to send orders, billing and sales at head office in real time. This greatly shortens the time between ordering and delivery to the buyer. For example, the goods ordered by the buyer on Tuesday morning at 15:00, may be submitted in a consolidated application for the central supplier, obtained during the night and Wednesday morning, delivered to the buyer.


14. The reporting module provides a wide range of reports.
