PC CLIENT / SERVER ENVIRONMENT

The Dash PC Client/Server designed programs automatically interface with each other and are capable of loading financial information into your finance programs. As each transaction is processed, all modules in the system will update and the financial information can be exported into your finance programs. Our standard file format has interfaced with common finance applications such as ACCPAC and QSP.

Interfacing of data eliminates the need for duplication of data entry thus saving time and resources while increasing accuracy in processing and maintaining up to date information. Additionally, the program modules have industry standard interfaces for use with electronic information sources (such as scanners, industry information files aircraft readiness, BSP, TCN, Electronic Tickets, etc), eliminating the need for manual data entry processing. Use of the DASH family of programs significantly reduces manpower requirements and processing expenses.

Inventory Application

Aviation inventories are one of the major expenses that a carrier is faced with and one that can easily and unnecessarily escalate if not properly controlled. The DASH Inventory Control System is designed to closely control the inventory so that it is kept both minimal and adequate. By maintaining a minimal inventory and coordinating restocking with purchasing, the carrier can realize cost benefits by not overstocking items on hand.

The DASH Inventory Control System posts inventory transactions in an on-line environment, keeping the stock levels reported accurate and up-to-date. As daily transactions are processed in the inventory system, the stock status is immediately updated to reflect the correct inventory quantities and values. The DASH on-line environment can be interfaced with an outside financial program thus updating the general ledger as daily transactions are performed. By interfacing the DASH Inventory module to the financial programs, the ledger will reflect the accurate inventory value at any given time.
