Franchise Operations Management system provides a channel for data and
information exchange between the central office, the stores and the
vendors/suppliers. The system also serves as a very effective management
tool in supporting day-to-day activities and reporting policies and procedures.
The data collected from stores can include daily sales information
(financial/plu/departments), labor hours, inventory and more. Cash registers of
all serviced stores are polled on a periodic basis and the data accumulated
in the registers is communicated to the central office. Any additional store
information could be entered in the system in the central office or remotely
using a hand-held Pocket PC, laptop or desktop Workstation, or any computer
connected to the Internet via a dialup or any other connection.
The data collected from vendors can include detailed electronic invoices and
other relevant information. The invoices received from vendors are verified
and loaded to the central database.
Upon receiving the data from stores and vendors in the central office, the
management reports are generated capturing activities by date range, by
department, by store location, territory, and vendor. After the management
approval these reports can be automatically distributed (via fax/e-mail) or
made available for viewing to authorized stores' personnel.

the software, the hardware. The customer has all necessary rights to the
