Hi everyone! Sorry I dont know where this post belongs, hope somebody can help me. We are looking to start up a business, whereby people send us Point of Sale data via their modem. We want to streamline the process, so by clicking on one button, it will generate the report we need, and then submit this data to a centralised database housed at another location. We are looking to get this information from about 1000 retailers.
Someone was telling me about a system they currently use for ordering stock on their current system, they were talking about a dial-up comm?? Can somebody here shed some light on this, and the best way to go about this. We want to make it a 'no hassle' way for the person to send this data to us. If it means extra work for these people, they will not send in this data.
Any suggestions to this? A friend suggested setting up an fTP server, but i dont know the logistics of this! We were thinking if this automatic way doesn’t work, we would get them to send this data in to us on a floppy disk or even email to us, but that would mean extra work for these people. HELP!! Cheers
I would like a system whereby people use a modem to transfer their data (not over the internet). I personally think it would be much easier over the internet, but have been advised against looking into this option. Thanks for your help. I have been through most this stuff. I decided to post this on a forum after I had no luck getting exactly what i needed from google. Never the less, i shall have a look. Cheers
