ESL.Net is a new plug-in device developed for by A&M srl (Microarea Platinum Partner) to enable you to update the prices and information about products in real time, without having to manually access these on the shelf to change the traditional paper labels.

This new application, designed an developed by Applications & Management srl, Microarea Partner Platinum, receives and instantly updates the information for definition of the goods: selling price, promotions, discount, etc.
It has been designed for the retail market and besides being used with you can also use it with the solution. It does not require any specific management for the sales point.
ESL.Net has many strong points, namely:

  1. Reduction of management costs, since it eliminates the need to daily update the paper labels;
  2. Greater efficiency, since the system provides indication of eventual errors in the transmission of information;
  3. Improved management of promotions, since it can count on a quick implementation of the change in price;
  4. “Intelligent” labels, to supply the sales staff with additional information about the products;
  5. Greater customer loyalty, by an increase in the perception of the quality of the service provided;
  6. System modularity, it can be adapted to all types of requirements;
  7. Customization of labels, in accordance with the requirements concerning information and appearance of the sales point.

ESL.Net is based on wireless technology for the transmission of information from the transmitter to the sales information system and electronic labels.
The main advantage of this system consists in the fact that no cables or expensive infrastructures are required, since the wireless technology does not require any physical connection between the transmitter and the electronic labels.

Perhaps not everyone knows that...

Since this issue of the Microarea Newsletter a new survey starts: the "perhaps not everyone knows that ....". In a few lines we will give you the "pills information" relating to features extremely useful and perhaps not so much known.

Here is the first “pill”:  to see the ledger card in the original currency allows you to record transactions in foreign currency but not everyone knows that to see the ledger card in the original currency is necessary to have the synthesis balances in original currency (for example a cash account in dollars). It’s possible to enable the management of currency accounts even after operations have already registered to the account.
Also on the account in foreign currency (but also in receivables and payables in foreign currency) may be necessary to record a difference for the exchange rates at the end of the year to exhibit a more realistic amount in the balance. Please use the Microarea Community Forum to retrieve more info: exchange your experiences and obtain advice from other users!

See you on the next newsletter!

Microarea Community is here, the forum to share and improve knowledge, opinions, experiences around the Microarea products and services

9 January 2009 by szarino

The sound of toasting and best wishes is still echoing in our ears and Microarea already has important news for its users and partners:   the Microarea Community, an online forum that, as from 12 January will enable anyone who actively participates to improve and share their knowledge of the Microarea products and services.

We talked about this with the project manager, Andrea Rinaldi, who stressed the most significant features of this new tool: “The forum has three basic objectives:

  1. To be a place to swap information where people can network and share experiences on the Microarea products and services, give and get help or just swap ideas and points of view;
  2. Become a store of experiences and knowledge of the Microarea products and services accessible to the Community and easy to use with appropriate keywords;
  3. Create added value for all the Community users with the accumulation of contributions by various participants that translates, for example into saving a good deal of time (and therefore of money!) spent searching for information or developing software.

So, the conjecture is common interest and desire to share.”

Mr. Rinaldi uses a suggestive image to simply explain the mechanism of the forum: “Imagine the forum as a large container to which each regular visitor adds even just one coin: the great thing is that because we are dealing with knowledge, the content can only grow, and the container will never be empty, however much people draw from it the knowledge collected there. Overall, the more active the community of people networking in the forum, the higher added value obtained. Furthermore, individual users get back a lot more than they give and everyone can draw great advantage from joining the forum.”

You can only access the Microarea Community after registering on the Microarea site, using the same selected credentials. Depending on your profile (partner, user, prospect), you can access diverse areas where you can initiate discussions on issues you are interested in.
“Microarea hosts the forum”, explains Mr. Rinaldi, “but it doesn’t guide the discussions: we thinks its right for the users of the service – Microarea users and partners to communicate directly with each other.
Microarea mainly acts as moderator and ensures compliance with the principles of “Netiquette”: politeness, reciprocal respect, relevance of the topics, ban on advertising etc…”

How can you enter the Microarea Community?

Here are the simple steps to take in order to join the Community:

  • If you haven’t already done so, register on the Microarea portal;
  • Access the Forum and use the same credentials to enter;
  • At this point we recommend carefully reading the Netiquette that includes the code of conduct so you always act correctly and can avoid possible “gaffes”;
  • After reading and accepting the Netiquette regulations you can start visiting the forums and access the various theme areas to suit your profile.

It’s a good rule to read what has already been written on a given topic so you don’t repeat issues that have already been covered. If there is no answer to your question, you can ask the Community for help by writing a new post. One function that could be of interest to the user is notification by email of the response published on the forum.
