PM Hub is a suite of applications developed by PM IT Systems to act as a bridge between multiple systems and enable the automatic transference of data between them.
This brings several advantages where a company has disparate systems not able to communicate directly.
One example of this is that it allows one system to be designated the “Master” for creation of certain sets of data, i.e. accounts or products, and data to be delivered from there to other systems saving duplication, typos, miscoding and other such errors if both were maintained manually in parallel.
Another benefit is that transactions can be generated in one system and seamlessly imported into another. Originally this was just useful for reasons of speed and accuracy, but now with HMRC’s rules on Making Tax Digital, financial data generated in one system should be imported without changes into the software that reports to HMRC and must not be manually re-entered.
While originally designed to work seamlessly with Pegasus Opera, other modules also communicate with and between our own and other 3rd party systems running on a range of database back ends (i.e. SQL, Progress, VFP etc.) via a mixture of appropriate technologies such as SQL Server Agent tasks, Web Services, xml and csv file transfer etc.
The system is designed to be modular and flexible and if a new requirement is identified a fresh module can be rapidly developed and added into the system.
The modules can be run manually or as regularly scheduled tasks.
An end user can navigate the application interactively and run options on demand.
