BrokerForce™ Takes to the Road


Road warriors take their data on the road and stay up to date with the home office.

A sales orders program is inherently a multi-user application and sales reps must ensure that contact and order changes made on the road are incorporated into changes made by colleagues at the office. BrokerForce™ Enterprise™ provides the tools to make the backend database replicable so that a replica of the office database can be taken on the road. Changes to both copies can be made independently and merged together at a later time via a network connection, modem, or the Internet.  The key is synchronization!

Many sales representatives still take orders the old fashioned way, writing them down and turning them in over the phone or faxing their hand written notes to the office for someone else to enter into the computer. As a result, there are transposition errors, order delays, and often, variances are not discovered until it is too late. More daring reps take the hot potato master copy of the data on the road. Unfortunately, it seems like this copy always gets damaged or written over by another older copy. The field and the home office are out of synch!

Replication enables users at different locations to share and synchronize the changes they are making to the database.  The Enterprise 'Make Replicable' tool is used first to convert the BrokerForce™ data to a replicable database.  Next, the 'Create Replica' tool enables the user to make a full or partial replica for use at an alternate location.  The 'Partial Replica' option may be used to restrict the records included in the replica to a date range or for a specific sales rep.  A date range is used to limit the size of the replica and avoid archival records.  A rep specific filter may be applied to limit access to sensitive information.  Only customer, contact, and orders information for the rep selected is transferred to the partial replica.  When changes need to be passed, click the 'Synchronize' button to exchange data updates.

BrokerForce™ provides road warriors and home offices with the real time tactical intelligence they need. Brokers or representatives can take a replica of the data to their home or on the road knowing that the orders they take or updates to contact records they make can be synchronized with the main office's master copy at any time. New vendors and products can be added, and order adjustments made at the central office at the same time. The data can be synchronized over a remote access modem connection, the Internet, or via the local area network. Any number of replicas can be made to accommodate the entire sales force.  Each rep only has his/her customers, contacts, and orders.  There's no user level password security to administrate.  All changes are propagated to the replicas from the master copy and vice versa.

DataForce can host your Internet hub replica and take the worry out of the related network and security administration.  Your reps can synchronize to the hub replica from anywhere with a local Internet connection using the highest speed available.  DataForce web hosting services also enable your customers to place orders on your web site for all of your lines.
