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 STATION - DATA SYNCHRONIZATION

 

The communication software engines for data synchronization between the central SQL server and each POS is developed by Aralco.

As a result, Aralco POS terminals communicate with the Back Office Server directly and the two-way data traffic takes place every few seconds giving up-to-date information all the time on every aspect of your business.
 

The central server and POS terminals including BOS workstations are configured by IRMCS team to communicate within a secured computer virtual private network via the Internet.  Here is how it works -

 

  • Outgoing data - Each completed sales transaction at each POS is auto-synced instantly to the central server for updating sales, inventory sold or returned, customers' purchases, and etc.
     
  • Incoming data - Any latest or changed data on products, prices, promotions, customers and etc. are auto-synced from and by the central server continuously to each POS station.

 

 

BOS WORKSTATION - CLIENT/SERVER 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.

 

  • Incoming data - Sales from each transaction synced from each POS are updated in chronological order in the central SQL database including adjustment of stock on hand, customer's purchase, and etc.
     
  • Outgoing data -  Upon saving of any new or changed data at any BOS station, the information is auto-synced instantly to each POS station from and by the central server.

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.

 

* BOS workstations refer to computers used by employees to process back-office functions such as add new or change informations on products or customers, purchase orders or stock receiving, running (BOS) reports and etc.

DATA COMMUNICATION MANAGEMENT

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.

 

DATA SECURITY

Secure Data Communication 

Aralco Retail Systems offer two-way data synchronization between the server and each Aralco Retail POS Terminals within a virtual private network (VPN). 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".

 

In our last 8 years of operating our data centre resource, IRMCS is pleased to note that there has never been a successful hack, nor any successful attempt to access confidential data.
