is the key to effective management, and is also one of the most
valuable resources you possess. On the one hand it must be protected
from abuse, while at the same time be freely available to key
Stamina Security System solves this apparent dilemma
in a typically efficient and non-obtrusive manner. It
is like a silent, omnipresent guardian that oversees
the operation of every terminal user. At its simplest
level, the security system allows any menu, process
or form to be protected with a password. In order to
gain access to a protected area a terminal operator
must first supply a valid password, which can be unique
to each company or accounting entity if required.
control can be exercised through the use of "Security
Profiles", which define not only which processes
can be accessed, but also how each process or form can
be used. For example, you could allow access to a maintenance
process and only allow information to be reviewed, with
no possibility for creation or amendment.
security profiles operate as a number of inter-woven
levels. At the highest level you can define which systems
and processes are to be available within each company
or accounting entity.
example, direct access to the General Ledger System
may be restricted to head office in a multi-location
environment. Head office may also have access to all
features of the Accounts Payable System, with other
locations restricted to enquiries only, and all locations
having full access to the Accounts Receivable System.
a similar manner, security profiles can be established
for all or selected users, defining exactly which companies
or entities can be accessed, which processes within
each entity, and also the mode of operation allowable
within a process.
user profiles allow a view of the features available
with Stamina to be established that is appropriate to
an individuals needs. Processes that are not relevant
are simply not displayed on menus, and can not be accessed
under any circumstances.
appropriate, this concept can also be extended to the
level of individual terminals on the system.
may mean that terminals in non-secure areas would only
have restricted access to the system, regardless of
who is using the terminal, or that terminals in a remote
branch can only access information originating from
appropriate, protection can also be extended right down
to individual fields within a process or form. You can
hide the contents of a field from view, display information
but inhibit change, allow full access or even put a
password on a field.
example, this could mean that you could allow a clerk
to have access to employee information in the Payroll
System. However, if their job function was simply to
maintain up to date address and next of kin information,
all other fields could be hidden from prying eyes and
a password could be placed on the price and discount
fields in the invoicing procedure to ensure all discounting
is authorised. The only way a non-standard price or
discount could be entered would be with the entry of
a password, which would only be known by your credit
an added security measure you may also set terminal
inactivity timers. If a terminal is logged on, and has
not been used for, say, 10 minutes, the system assumes
that the original operator may have left the terminal
and will automatically be logged off, which also helps
reduce your concurrent user count.
Stamina Security System can protect your information
in an invisible sheath, ensuring that all system users
only have access to the information YOU decide they
