It is a relational database system that manages related data in Company, Contacts, Inventory, Staffs, etc. modules. The system reserves access rights for different levels of user roles, such as: Developer, Administrator, Manager, Client. It has the admin ability to manage system configuration and set ups. It provides built in ability to create/edit the e-mail templates to be send as reminder e-mails to contacts and for different type of information in both product and contact sections.
