DataMax’s Back Office software solutions are Envoy 8 for convenience store chains, and Storeworks for single site users. Both solutions manage all aspects of fuel and merchandise retailing for convenience retailers, and produce continuing success to the largest oil companies in the world, as well as single site users
Envoy 8 is the latest version of DataMax’s Envoy Global Retail Manager (GRM) convenience store back office software. It is designed specifically with convenience retailers in mind. Envoy 8 centrally controls every aspect of retail operations from a home office while automating the daily books and store paperwork/store management operations. Envoy also supports advanced features like automated suggested reordering, EDI ordering, rules based user defined exception notifications and reporting, user defined store daily task list, drill down reporting, pivot reporting, custom report designer, automatic POS polling to support real time data, and business intelligence. Envoy 8 does it all while providing anywhere access via the web.
The Storeworks Convenience Store Back Office System has for years been an industry leader for single store and small chains. Storeworks provides a feature set similar to Envoy, but tailored to the requirements of smaller operators. Small chains which do not require complete central office control, but still require centralized price book and centralized reporting may also add Storeworks HOS to accomplish both goals.
Both Envoy 8 and Storeworks are highly configurable in order to address the unique needs and business models of each customer, and interface with virtually any POS.
