SOLOCHAIN™ is built on a scalable and flexible platform that powers its use as a warehouse management system, a manufacturing execution system, a transportation management system, and more. It is highly configurable in terms of information layout, mobile workflow processes, reporting, and optimization rules. SOLOCHAIN’s technological infrastructure is designed for maximum configuration flexibility and performance scalability. 

This robust platform benefits your business with a highly adaptive supply chain solution, taking care of your business today and in the future.

SOA ARCHITECTURE

SOLOCHAIN™ is built on a 3-tier open architecture that separates business, user, and data layers. Written in Java, the application is based on a Service Oriented Architecture (SOA), with functions accessible from an external system via application programming interfaces (APIs). This technology infrastructure enables SOLOCHAIN™ to be scalable, easily configurable, and seamlessly integrated with other systems.

SOLUTION CONFIGURATION

We have created a powerful user interface platform that enables complete configuration from the initial skin to field display layouts. The SOLOCHAIN™ application is web-based, using the latest tools and technology to create dynamic and rich user interfaces. SOLOCHAIN™ relies on Solomodel, the metadata framework that contains all data objects (i.e., tables, pages, attributes, reports, etc.) contained and used by SOLOCHAIN™. This sophisticated framework provides total access to the data model or any other component of the software, providing our customers with the access required to maintain and configure the solution after the initial implementation. It offers complete real-time visibility to the data model, page layouts, and configuration tags.

MOBILE PROCESS CONFIGURATION

SOLOCHAIN™ enables you to configure and create mobile workflows to meet all your operational requirements. The displayed information, workflow steps, business rules, and validation criteria are 100% configurable using the SOLOCHAIN™ workflow mapper.

ERP INTEGRATION

Information between your ERP system and SOLOCHAIN™ is wholly integrated and synchronized in real-time. Leveraging the latest technology using Web Services, XML format, and a Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA), SOLOCHAIN™ offers out-of-the-box integration with third-party systems. 

The system interface hub is directly embedded in SOLOCHAIN™ for real-time monitoring of all inbound and outbound transactions. A transaction error, for example, will trigger an automatic email advising the appropriate staff members. 

SOLOCHAIN™ can integrate with multiple systems using different communication protocols. Leveraging the best solutions, on the right platform and technology, SOLOCHAIN™ gives you a competitive edge.
