  • ebizframe e-business framework for the global enterprise Eastern Software Systems, India’s premier business applications provider introduces a new creation - ebizframe. W h at iis ebiizf ram e? W h at s eb zf ram e? ebizframe is an e-commerce enabling tool which allows an organization to conduct its entire business from its own Internet portal. All entities that need to transact business with an organization through its portal, the gateway to the company, and visit the areas relevant for them. For example, using ebizframe………. …….a customer can visit the company to check all his transactions, check delivery status for his orders, check his accounts, place additional orders, or even modify existing orders. ………a supplier can check whether his shipments have been received, or check status of payments due to him or even make new product offers and special pricing. © Eastern Software Systems Ltd Page 2
  • ebizframe ……..an employee, who could be sitting in any part of the world can file claims, check his accounts, or even get an online appraisal done by his boss, without the necessity of a physical meeting. If an employee is in sales, he can immediately check inventories etc of the company products, which will enable him to make, informed commitments to his clients. In addition, ebizframe users can give out or receive e-purchase orders, esales orders and so on. With this functionality, a business can start effective interaction and business with people all over the world, without having to worry about physical boundaries of business. ebizframe, is therefore a true e-business enabler. For larger businesses who have a large number of suppliers and buyers, ebizframe can create an online community which shall be able to do transactions quickly, efficiently and economically. The components of ebizframe include web site building templates, knowledge management tools, chat, email, diary builder, as well as an entire ERP engine covering manufacturing and non-manufacturing operations. Delivery options ESS offers ebizframe with four different options – On Rent, With VPN & (or) lease line connections and co-hosted server option. These various connectivity options give the users a wide choice if terms of speed, security considerations and upfront investments, and yet preserve the benefits of ecommerce enablement so essential for growth of business in the internet powered future. In brief… 1. 2. 3. ebizframe enables SCM and CRM, as well as e-transactions such as ePOs and eSOs (electronic Purchase Orders and electronic Sales Orders). ebizframe builds upon existing ERP strengths to include Knowledge Management. ebizframe also enables an organization to make itself completely Internet driven by enabling creation of web front-end as well offer integrated functionality for facilities such as web mail, web chat and other productivity tools. © Eastern Software Systems Ltd Page 3
  • ebizframe Ebizframe can be utilized by • • Organisations seeking to run their business processes on the net. B2B portals as their transactions processing engine. © Eastern Software Systems Ltd Page 4
  • ebizframe • Legacy Applications Organizations that have existing legacy applications including ERP applications face a serious challenge in trying to enable e-commerce. Large investments of money and efforts in legacy applications need not be discarded and all benefits of e-commerce can be achieved by using ebizframe. Ebizframe transactions engine can be interfaced with the existing applications to ensure that the net-based business integrates seamlessly with existing internal processes. ebizframe suite can be broadly categorized into two primary components : • Web front end: ebizframe frontend applications are focussed on enabling Internet based content creation and management including web site creation. Tools for creating “e-commerce” components such as e – transactions with buyers and suppliers and remote employees, web-based chat, email, knowledge management and other productivity tools such as diary, calendar, sticky notes/reminders which translate into immediate cost savings and productivity enhancement form an integral part of the offering. • Commercial transactions back end: “ebizframe” backend functions can eenable all aspects of business (including Sales, Sales Force Automation, Purchase, Inventory, Finance, Costing, Human Resources, Payroll, Fixed Assets, Production Planning, Production, Equipment Maintenance, Customer Care i.e. all components of a conventional ERP). The components integrate seemlessly to ensure that the data captured at the frontend can be immediately utilized by the backend. For example, a sales order created by a customer, can immediately kick off despatch of finished goods, or even a production cycle, which in turn catalyses purchase of materials, and impacts accounts and inventory. © Eastern Software Systems Ltd Page 5
  • ebizframe W eb Front End W eb Front End The web front end is similar to the “entrance” of an organisation where an entrant gets directed to the relevant part of the organisation depending on the nature of his relationship with the organisation. This frontend is completely flexible and can be built up to suit the organisation's specific needs. Ebizframe Technology Ebizframe uses Java and related technologies for the front end and Oracle toolkit and database for the backend. In addition to existing features, ebizframe roadmap includes WAP based access, video conferencing, ability to absorb data feeds from relevant sites among others. Ebizframe allows you to convert your business into an Internet powerhouse. Ebizframe offers a single platform for all parts of your organization as well as customers and suppliers, irrespective of geographic locations and time. Ebizframe allows members of your ecology to access your company’s data, online, through the Internet. For example Customers can place and amend orders, check shipments or production status, check accounts and get quotations and chat with companies sales staff Visitors may check products, specifications, delivery periods, get quotations and place orders and get answers to their queries online or through email Suppliers can send online quotations, check billing and payment status, change pricing and delivery schedules as well as make special offers Remote employees check company policies, record expense claims and leave requests, have online appraisals and manage better by using tools such as online diary, calendar as well as maintain better co-ordination using the company’s own email and chat facilities Potential suppliers can enlist themselves and offer their products and services to the company through the net © Eastern Software Systems Ltd Page 6
  • ebizframe As an example, the frontend could have the following: 1. Visitors Link: This link connects the visitors of the portal web-site to the Corporate home page. The ebizframe product gives the user the facility to create home pages, which can be designed and tailor made to their requirements. A lot of website templates are available to the user to choose from. 2. Customers Link: This link gives customers the facility to transact business with the organisation such as place enquiries and orders on the company. There is no limit on the type and number of transactional ability the organisation wants to give to its customers. These transactions feed directly to the commercial transactions engine seemlessly. 3. Suppliers Link: This could enable the supplier to transact business such as view the purchase orders placed on him by the company, or view the companies inventory or even submit new quotations. Again, there are no technological limitations except the companies view on which parts of the organisational data the user company wants to open up for view/data transaction with the suppliers. 4. Employees Link: This link takes the employees of the company to avail themselves of following services : a). Email: This service enables employees to communicate and exchange information with co-workers and company'’ business associates. The Interface provided is intuitive enough and provides all the facilities typically provided by any email service on the Net. b). Chat: This component enables the user to communicate and chat with co-workers and business partners at different regional locations. The chat software gives the option of selecting private chatroom for maintaining confidentiality of messages. c). PIM: Diary, Appointment book, Reminders and Calendar enable the employees to maintain their schedules, appointments etc and to plan their work for coming days. d). Notice Board/Suggestions/Company Info: This service gives users a common platform to share their views, suggestions etc with fellow workers and colleagues. It is important to understand that any of these tools could also be provided to other users such as prospects or customers. Therefore, potential customers could hit the chat button, and have an online chat with the sales department of the company to satisfy their questions before they actually transact business. Th e Back End Th e Back End ebizframe integrates the back-end ERP business engine to the front end component by enabling not only e-commerce but also a host of other functionality, all of which is related to increasing the velocity of doing business. The business engine provides the user the facility to transact, generate critical reports in browser based formats with online and offline options. © Eastern Software Systems Ltd Page 7

  • ebizframe ebiizframe E-Maiill software eb zframe E-Ma software Ov erviiew of ebiiz emaiill Fe atur es Ov erv ew of eb z ema Fe atur es ebiz email supplies a rich feature set. In addition to the primary functions of a mail server, there are many other functions a server can perform. These features are discussed in MORE COMPLETE detail in the following chapters. Mailing Lists Prominent among ebiz email features is the function of a listserver. The mailing list functions provided by a listserver allow a user to send a single piece of email to multiple recipients. This is a widely used feature not only for mass mailings, but also for moderated discussion groups. ebiz email's listserver is extremely powerful and allows many configuration options, which make the listserver valuable in a number of contexts. It also provides extremely high performance (speed measured by how many mail messages may be sent out in a specified period of time). While some competitors charge extra for their listservers, ebiz email's listserver is built-in. Auto-responders You can set ebiz email to automatically reply to mail received at certain addresses. For example, you can set ebiz email to automatically deliver a file containing information on your company's products when a customer sends a request to products@yourcompany.com. You can configure autoresponders to deliver immediate information to customers in a timely manner. For example, products@yourcompany.com, questions@yourcompany.com. Forwarding Users can set options to have their mail forwarded to other accounts, locally or on other systems. Aliases Mail can be redirected from a generic department name to a real person. For example, you can redirect sales@yourcompany.com to your sales manager's mailbox, or marketing@yourcompany.com to your marketing manager. Dial-up Connections Unlike many email servers, ebiz email does not require a dedicated connection to the Internet. It has a great facility that uses Windows Dial-Up Networking to make the Internet connection automatically for sending and receiving email. This means ebiz email can save you money, and it can be used on sites where no other email server will succeed. Multiple Domains ebiz email can handle mail for more than one domain. If you need to present more than one presence to the world (more than one company name or organization name), you do not need to have more than one email server. ebiz email will let you be Floras_Restaurant.com and Floras_Catering.com, both on the same email server. © Eastern Software Systems Ltd Page 14
  • ebizframe Mail Filtering ebiz email now provides protection against the reception of unsolicited email through the use of IP address and Domain/Name filtering. With ebiz email's Mail Filtering option, you can easily protect your users from receiving junk email. SMTP Relay Filtering ebiz email allows you to secure your mail server from unauthorized use by unknown outside sources through the use of SMTP Relay Filtering. You can ENTER IN both allowed and restricted IP addresses or IP address ranges for those who may or may not use your mail server to send mail. Remote Administration With ebiz email's new remote administration capabilities, you can now administer your local ebiz email server from any browser connected to the Internet. This is included in the Web Administration of ebiz email Wizard. Many Other Features ebiz email's feature list continues to grow. ebiz email offers the widest variety of features that are important to administrators who need to keep users happy. The list currently includes: • • • • • • • • • • Easy-to-use control panel for mail administration Ability to work with gateways behind firewalls Easy-to-read status screen and log file Ability to control user access to system Finger and Reverse Finger to allow for mail notification responses Full MX record resolution, including resolution to subnets Standalone utility to generate outgoing mail Access to incoming mail in mailboxes through the UNIX mailbox-type format and POP3 server support Configurable connection methods and the ability to specify groups of connections based on the node or class of nodes Ability to restrict the sending of auto-responses to avoid many bounce situations ahead of time © Eastern Software Systems Ltd Page 15

Purchase department interacts with different departments of the organization, suppliers, sub-contractors and service providers. Ebizframe Purchase is linked with : • Ebizframe Finance for making payments to the suppliers/subcontractors against the bills received by the purchase department for the material supplied. • Ebizframe Inventory for processing purchase requisitions that are generated automatically when stocks fall below a certain level and for receiving goods against purchase orders • Ebizframe Production for processing the purchase requisition of raw material sent by the production floor. The Purchase routine starts with the generation of Purchase Requisition for various items followed by sending Request For Quotation to various suppliers. On receiving Quotations from suppliers, evaluation is done on the basis of various criteria. Purchase Order is generated for selected suppliers and Amendments can be made if required. In case of an immediate requirement, an Adhoc Purchase Order is generated. In this case, Purchase Order is directly placed with suppliers, without inviting quotations. Purchase Orders can be made in any currency. Amendments can be implemented here also. Purchase can also be made from suppliers who are based overseas. In this case the procedure remains the same, except that some additional features; such as, Custom Details and Bill Of Entry/Lading are defined in Ebizframe Purchase whenever material is imported. The Process cycle is followed whenever any item has to be sent out to sub-contractors for processing. In this case, Process Requisition is generated and Request For Quotation is sent to various sub-contractors. Receiving Quotations from the sub-contractors follows this. A Process Order is generated for those sub-contractors who meet specified criteria. Amendments to Process Order can be made if required. Purchase department generates a Store Despatch Request for the despatch of raw material to the subcontractor. Adhoc Process Orders and Amendments can be generated in this case also. In both Purchase and Process cycles, Order can be Direct, Scheduled or Open. In case of Open and Scheduled Order, Order Scheduling is done whereby the quantities to be purchased or processed are distributed over a time period. Incase of the Direct Order, scheduling is not required. Also amendment of schedules is allowed. Details of the services provided by the service providers can also be recorded. The authorized Service Bill details are posted to ebizframe Finance. Cancellation of an authorized Service Bill is also possible. Page 22

On the basis of the Purchase Order, material from suppliers can be received in stores through Material Receipt at Stores. Received material is then sent for quality check to detect any material that is to be rejected or reworked. Accepted material is transferred to the main stores whereas a Rejected Material Despatch Advice (RMDA) is generated for rejected material. RMDA can be issued from the Inventory in the following cases: • Against the material received from the suppliers/ subcontractors. • Against material received from the Requirement Areas through Material Return Note and from the Shop Floor through Line Rejection Note. Stock Ledger For Process Order, raw material is despatched to sub-contractors using the gatepass and semi-finished or finished goods are received from them in stores. Various departments that request for material from Inventory are termed as Requirement Areas. These requirement areas fill the Material Requisition Slip (MRS) and send it to Inventory according to their requirement. Based on the requisition received from Requirement Areas, Inventory issues material to them. Material Pending At Quality Control Item wise for suppliers Item wise for subcontractor Item wise for Company Unit A Material Return Note (MRN) is sent by the requirement areas in two cases: 1. If the goods are being rejected. 2. If the goods have been received in excess. Stock Status Periodwise, Itemwise Lotwise Status Stock Value © Eastern Software Systems Ltd Page 24

Ebizframe Production Planning is linked with : • Ebizframe Sales: The sales department gives the production advice every month to the production-planning department and scheduling of orders takes place. • Ebizframe Inventory: For getting details about inputs like their availability time for processing. • Ebizframe Purchase: For generation of process requisitions for sub contracting and purchase requisitions. • Ebizframe Production: It picks up machine related information from here for its processes. The details of shifts and production calendar for the machines is also available in ebizframe production. Ebizframe Production Planning process is a conversion function where inputs are transformed to outputs and byproducts. Inputs include raw material and semi-finished goods whereas outputs may be either semi-finished or finished products; their combination leads to a finished product. Process can be of two types: • In-house process where production can take place at the production floor of the organization. • Outside process where the material is sent out of the factory to the sub-contractors. Bill of Material (BOM) is defined for each product. It contains processes involved in Production cycle of the products along with inputs, outputs, by-products and overheads. Production cost of an item can be calculated by direct and indirect costs. Direct cost defines the quantity and value of raw material required for the production of each item. For indirect cost overhead charges like electricity, labor etc., can be defined. On the basis of the Production Advice that is prepared by the sales department and which is based on the sale orders, Material Requirement Plan (MRP) is generated. In MRP, feasible quantity is calculated against the advised quantity for production, taking into account various factors like machine capacity, efficiency, production calendar, shift details, BOM, Raw material availability, lead time, etc. Production priority can also be defined if production advice contains more than one product. On the basis of the MRP a Monthly Production Schedule (MPS) is generated. MPS displays a machine allocation chart for the month indicating the allocated and unallocated days for the working of the machine and also the non-working days. MPS also gives the shift-wise Job Card for any day of the month on any machine. After the finalization of MPS, raw material is automatically reserved in the stores for the process.

In response, service providers send their quotations, and based on these quotations, a service provider is selected. Job Orders are generated for selected service providers. In case of an immediate requirement, an Adhoc Job Order is generated. In this case the service providers are directly given the Job Order, with the elimination of procedure for inviting quotations (RFQ). After the generation of Job Order, Job Order Execution takes place, keeping the maintenance priorities in mind. Maintenance Schedule keeps a track of asset’s maintenance details, maintenance type, last date of maintenance and scheduled date of maintenance. Maintenance Bills are generated for the job orders.
