Important Note
Softhard Solutions ShopMate for Windows® is a large, Business Accounting Software, Sql Server Database backed system with lots of Data Input. For this reason, only Devices (Desktops, Laptops and Tablets) capable of running Windows 7, 8, 10 or later are supported. There is no support for Tablets incapable of running Windows and Phones.

 

There have been many great enhancements and improvements implemented in ShopMate. Some of these include:

  • If your business has multiple branches or your business premises are large and you need to share one database, ShopMate supports connections to Microsoft Windows Azure Cloud Sql Server and Database Services. These services enable you to save on your own infrastructure and run ShopMate anywhere in the world and connect to your database where ever a connection to the Internet Network is available.
     
  • Introduction of the Company Branches. The Company Branches may be used by companies that have one or more branches in their business operations structure. Each branch is a separate business structure and handles its own data only. An exception is the Branch number one, Main Company Branch, which is associated with the Business Details Manager which handles its data.
    Data for all branches is put in the same tables, separated only by a unique BranchID number using the same database. Each record in tables (for example: Customers, Suppliers, Employees, Invoices, Orders...) has a unique identification number called BranchID which is used for filtering the data for the individual branches.
     
  • Using Microsoft® SQL Server 2012® (or higher) as ShopMate primary relational data store. This enables you, among other things, to be sure not to loose any data and to have only one set of data situated in just one database for the lifetime duration of ShopMate operations of your business.
     
  • The ShopMate Database resides on any instance of SQL Server 2012® or higher, installed on your machine or Cloud service. On your premises, this sql server may be supplied by you or, if you do not have your own installed, Softhard Solutions will provide one for you in the ShopMate Install Time.
     
  • Acquisition of data is performed in real time. You never deal with any redundant data in your ShopMate forms. The forms containing data are updated automatically every 100 (if connected to Cloud it is done differently) millisecond (10 times a second), maintaining all the forms on current network constantly with fresh data, making any concurrency of data (making changes to the same data at the same time by two or more users) almost not existent. This is done quietly, behind the scenes.
     
  • Ability to make your own reports in addition to already extensive ShopMate. reporting. If you purchase your own Microsoft® SQL Server 2012®, you can use the user interfaces, supplied by the server, to interrogate the database in any way you wish in addition to data interrogation that ShopMate supplies. Note that this requires a good knowledge of SQL language to form server queries.
     
  • Handling of the government Goods and Services (VAT - value added tax), Excise and Employee taxes. If you are in a business that requires handling of the excise tax, on top of the GST, ShopMate. handles this for you.
     
  • And much more...
