  • Remote Sales
    Using the Remote Sales function enables sales personnel located in distant places to interact with the central database. This ensures that the latest data is available to both off-site and on-site personnel to further streamline sales efforts.
    Remote Sales can be installed on the computers of sales personnel working remotely from standalone systems. Through these standalone systems, remote users can synchronize data with the central QAD CRM database, as shown in the figure below.

    Remote Sales
    In the stand-alone system, data is stored in a local single-user database. This database is referred to as the remote node. The host node is the central database. Remote nodes can synchronize data with the host node to make the latest information available to both on-site and off-site users.
    Remote Sales interacts with the modules of both Sales Management and Marketing Management.
    Data Synchronization is the most important function of Remote Sales. This module helps sales personnel working off-line synchronize their data with the central system. It provides features to:
    Set up the remote node to link with the host node.
    Manually load data from, and dump data to, the central server.
    Display data received from the host node.
    Automatically upload or download the latest data.
    You must register remote nodes and set data synchronization as required.
