CEB consists in an application capable of controling and managing multiple type of transactions based on their pay type, bill type and pay mode.

Moreover, CEB comprises different tables that allow the user to file transaction information such as: bank and branches, areas, account data, etc. Moving through these fields permits to configure different setups to display useful boards or graphics.

The main constructions made with CEB are:

  • Desktops
  • Forms
  • RF-Web
  • Dashboards
  • OLAP's

Every mentioned construction works differently and has advantages and drawbacks depending on the user's goal. For this reason, subsequent sections are focused on how to access and which working explanation and suitable usages the tools have.

1 Desktops

Desktops are visual displays that present different channels which, in turn, show interesting data in the form of tables, charts or a combination of both.

The main advantage of having a desktop (or multiple) resides in an easy follow-up with periodic data. For example: daily-profits, weekly-production, etc. The possibility of customizing the information that is shown in the desktop, gives the client a personal overall picture of anything considered to be interesting.

2 Forms

Before visual information reproduction, it is necessary to fill the tables with the corresponding data. To do so, users have access to forms where they can introduce the inputs they are asked for. Furthermore, forms are used for three main tasks: introduction, modification or data deleting.

Once the inputs have been recorded, the system stores them in tables. That information can be displayed later, in one way or another, as user's choice.

3 RF-Web

RF-Web or Axional Terminal is a tool that permits the developer to create distinct screens that will act as vertical forms. This way, users can introduce data fields one by one till the process is completed. At the same time, some interesting data for the user can be displayed as a list or as an option button.

Technically, Axional Terminal is a familty of Java lightweight applications to execute transactional applications using stateless SOAP connections on Handheld devices.

4 Dashboards

Sometimes, one could want to show some information in a way similar to a report. For those cases, a dashboard is the most useful option; it is formed by different objects that are set to exhibit visual-friendly data.

In some way, dashboards are similar to desktops, but with the addition of variables -instead of inputs- that are supposed to be introduced by the user before the data display. Common variables used are: time period (between two dates) or filter parameter, for example, the bank code.

5 OLAP's

On-line analytical processing (OLAP) is a powerful tool designed to offer the client a more dynamic data sight than desktop or dashboards.

This device is commonly used in Business Intelligence (BI) systems and it is based on multidimensional structures or cubes. Mentioned cubes, contain summarized data from large databases or transaction processing systems (OLTP). They are widely used in sales and marketing reports, executive reports, and related data analysis.

The crux of OLAP is that it offers different parameters that can be combined as user's election. Therefore, clients are able to try different charts or analyse distinct data very quickly without the necessity of programming the structure behind them.
