HIGHLIGHTS

  • Profiled settings: any set of parameter definitions can be profiled for an easy handling of multiple hardware and/or commercial configurations. The complete Kiosk and/or Ordering Client configuration is then made by assigning all profiles that apply. The kiosks, upon receiving any update from the Central system, will process and import only the data pertinent to their own profiles.
  • One Price List maintenance system only: the integrated Novax system platform, with its unique and powerful Price List architecture, is the only place where all prices are maintained. Any price change is made only once and is made available, at Dealer, at Retail, at Kiosks and Ordering Client Price List levels.
  • Available in 3 Editions: Lite, Standard, Enterprise based on Laboratory sizes.

BROADCASTING OF UPDATES TO KIOSKS AND ORDERING CLIENTS

All changes made to Products, Prices, Options, etc, for both the Kiosks as well as Ordering Clients are not instantly available to the Kiosks and Ordering Clients themselves by the time they are made on the NOVAX system. They become available on specific broadcasting actions initiated at NOVAX system level. Updates can be generated and broadcasted in two possible modes:

  • Incremental mode: only the changes since the last broadcast are extracted for the update,
  • Full mode: a full complete new data set is generated to entirely replace the existing configuration.
