Aralco developed and uses its own communication engine server where all Aralco POS and Back Office workstation synchronizes data automatically in real-time to and fro the remote central SQL Server over the Internet within a secure Virtual Private Network (VPN).
Data Communication Network
The Aralco Retail Systems is designed to work in a large multi-store network or in a simple single store operation. Aralco is capable of multiple registers within one location using local area networking (ideal for department stores or multi-lane grocery operations), or single POS register in each location.
POS DATA SYNCHRONIZATION
Aralco POS terminals communicate with the Back Office Server within a secured computer private network via the Internet - the two-way data communication takes place every few seconds giving up-to-date information all the time on every aspect of your business.
Data exchanges or synchronization between the central server and each POS station are encrypted in the Virtual Private Network (VPN), thus securing your real-time data always.
BOS WORKSTATION DATA COMMUNICATION
In the back office, Aralco Back Office System (BOS) workstations connect concurrently to the central server within the same private network enabling real-time and secured data processing that writes directly to the central SQL database.
CENTRAL SQL DATABASE SERVER
The central server can be hosted on-premises or at a data center of your choice to maximize security and to ensure minimal 95% uptime.
Aralco Back Office Server System automatically synchronizes the latest data every second between the SQL database and each POS station. Simultaneously, it updates your sales, inventory on hand and customers' data from every transaction synced from the POS.

Fail-safe & Real-time Data Communication Network
Each Aralco POS stores its own data on its hard drive to maximize its reliability and independence on the server or other devices.
If the Back Office Server is inaccessible or the Internet connection is not functional, the POS terminals will continue to operate independently (off-line) without interruption until the communication is fully re-established where the program ensures that any missing data is synchronized immediately.
Aralco architecture for data communication is superior in its concept and design offering you high efficiency and reliability. Being fail-safe, Aralco gives you perpetual retail operations without interruption so that you can focus on maximizing sales and customer satisfaction.

At IRMCS, we offer Managed IT services such as virtual private servers, virtual PCs, data hosting services with maximized IT security protection for your organization:
1. Your data is secured and protected from any attempts at hacking or private data breach – as all internet-facing servers are deployed in locked down mode, with only required services and features installed and enabled, and firewalled to permit only authorized services.
2. Your data which need not be publicly-accessible directly is further protected from public scrutiny – via a separate and private local area network (non-Internet accessible) is employed to permit communications to back-end database, application and storage servers, and runs at 1GBps.
3. Your data transmiited over the Internet via VPN are encrypted to protect your sensitive data against "data sniffer".
