Features Benefits
Store Emulator Replicate a store’s database to review, test, and make changes to data files without sending data directly to the physical store.
New Store Data Export Create menus and registers for new stores at your headquarters. When you define the characteristics of a new store, Digital Dining includes all of the set-up database files in an update package and sends the package to the new store.
Encrypted and Compressed Data Digital Dining encrypts your sales and financial information before transmitting it through the Internet, preventing unauthorized personnel from viewing your valuable data.
Dial-up and Dedicated Connection Avoid paying for expensive T1, DSL, and ISDN connections. Digital Dining compresses data packages before sending them, allowing you to use slower dial-up lines with optimum performance.
Store Import Utility Convert store data from a pilot store into the data files of your central multistore database. At the headquarters, you only need to make a few small changes in order to create the next store’s database.
