The "Data Collector" (DC, Data Collector) developed by GICA Company is designed to provide the company group layer and region after integrating into the central server in many branches and many C/S systems. The management level and other management levels provide various integrated data processing functions, including various data query, analysis, tracking, financial expense management and other functions. In this way, the benefits of an online centralized integrated system can be obtained without the need to throw away the existing C/S system. This kind of data integration is carried out through XML files, so it can be integrated with the group's existing EDI system without major adjustments to the existing system, so it has no major impact on the existing operating system.
The DC system can collect data from any different C/S program, not limited to the same software. The advantage of this is: for example, a company has many branches, and different branches have different systems, including the financial system of company A, the ERP system of company B, and the freight forwarding system of company C. These can be transferred through the GICA DC system. The data collection of different systems is integrated into a central database system, the data is classified according to different angles such as branch company, system type, data type, etc., and online tracking function is provided for customers (such as overseas agents, shippers, etc.). The group management provides integrated data statistics for each branch, such as group-level accounts receivable and payable, and provides cross-company data queries for employees in the group, and even performs secondary operations and processing on these data, including data hedging within the group (Auto billing), Credit Limit Control at the group level, etc.
Therefore, GICA DC is very useful for a large number of companies that have different systems and need centralized data control and management. The following is an actual Case Study, you can see the functions and uses of the DC system, as well as the future development prospects of this system.
