10/24/2016 TMS Web-Based App Announcement
TMS App is based on Google Angular 2 and Microsoft .net platform running on cloud based servers using SQL database. Angular is the next version of Google's massively popular MV* framework for building complex applications in the browser (and beyond).
In computing, a web application or web app is a client server application in which the client (or user interface) runs in a web browser. Users access the application from any device connected to the internet or an intranet using a standard browser, instead of using an application that has been installed on the user’s computer. On a basic website, pages are static. Web-based applications interact with users, by responding to users.
Accessible Anywhere, Any Device
Unlike traditional TMS application, web version is accessible anytime, anywhere, via a PC, Tablet, or Smart Phone with an Internet connection, putting the user in charge of where, how and when they access the application.
Easily Customizable – Ability to Incorporate Modern Design Schemes
The user interface of TMS web-based applications is easier to customize. This makes it simpler to update the look and feel of the application, along with providing a unique and exciting way to present data to the user with sophisticated reporting system.
Easier Sharing of Data Between Different Computer Systems
Using common internet technologies based on industry-wide standards, it is possible to achieve a far greater level of data sharing between applications versus traditional isolated desktop TMS. It is far easier to get an online 3rd party application to integrate with a TMS web-based application.
Quick and Easy Installation and Maintenance
With TMS web-based application, installation and maintenance becomes less complicated. Once a new version or upgrade is installed on the host server, all users can access it immediately. There is no need to upgrade each client PC. Rolling out new software can be accomplished more seamlessly, requiring only that users have up-to-date browsers. As the upgrades are only performed by an experienced professional to a single server, the results are more predictable and reliable.
TMS web-based application is installed on dedicated cloud based servers. As a result, there is no need to maintain multiple client computers. Secured connections can also be implemented, thus ensuring the protection of your sensitive company data. Since the data is centralized, it is extremely secure.
Users have direct access to the latest information wherever they are located. This data is always up to date.
Software as a Service - SaaS
TMS app will be offered as SaaS. With SaaS, customers pay to use software via the web as a service on demand, by paying a subscription rather than outright purchase. Software is licensed by number of users and/or levels of features. The SaaS model allows developers and vendors to keep control the hosting and operation of the software. Customers do not have to worry about hardware/software compatibility and support to run an application. Eliminating a major overhead. There is nothing to own, and you simply use the program as you see fit.

2/4/2013 CSI released version 2.2.6S Penny Rounding Feature
The cent will remain Canada’s smallest unit for pricing goods and services. This will have no impact on payments made by check or electronic transactions—only cash transactions will be affected. Moreover, pennies can still be used in cash transactions indefinitely with businesses that choose to accept them. A transition date of February 4, 2013 has been set after which the Royal Canadian Mint will no longer distribute pennies. On this date, businesses will be encouraged to begin rounding cash transactions. As pennies exit circulation, cash payments or transactions only will need to be rounded, either up or down, to the nearest five-cent increment. Under this guideline, when pennies are not available, cash transactions will be rounded in a fair and transparent manner, as per examples below: Cash sales of $1.02, or $1.03 is rounded down to $1.00 and $1.03, or $1.04 is rounded up to $1.05.
Only cash transactions require rounding. Checks and transactions using electronic payments—debit, credit and payments cards—do not need to be rounded, because they can be settled electronically to the exact amount. For any cash payment, only the final amount (or equivalently, the change owed) should be subject to rounding. Individual items, as well as any duties, fees or taxes, should be tabulated in their exact amount prior to rounding. For more information, please visit The Department of Finance Canada Penny Web .

- Each data item
is stored in a central location where all users
can work with it.
Separate copies of the item are not stored on each client, which eliminates problems with users having to ensure they are all working with the same information. Their system does not need to ensure that all copies of the data are updated with the current values, because there is only one copy in the central location.
- Business and security rules can be defined one time on the server and enforced equally among all users.
- A relational database server optimizes network traffic by returning only the data an application needs.
- Hardware costs
can be minimized.
Because the data is not stored on each client, clients do not have to dedicate disk space to storing data. The clients also do not need the processing capacity to manage data locally, and the server does not need to dedicate processing power to displaying data.
- Maintenance tasks such as backing up and restoring data are simplified because they can focus on the central server.
- secure hosting facility and Network Operations Center using the latest, most advanced construction techniques.
- No more replications for new items or corporate customers.
- Central Payment and Statement processing.
