System Facts and Features

Vintners Advantage allows you to implement the base Winery Management software, and then add other modules as needed.

  • The software operates using the IBM UniVerse database environment on Microsoft Win2K/XP Pro/NT Operating Systems.
  • Microsoft security and printer features are utilized by the IBM UniVerse database. The database is SQL/ODBC/OLEDB/XML compliant.
  • Vintners Advantage has application level user security. This allows each user to have a menu with only the programs that they are authorized to use.
  • The software allows the user to have multiple windows active, and supports full record locking to assure data integrity.
  • The software database license is concurrent. The client may be installed on many workstations. Only the active client sessions use a license.
  • The software has a ‘level pushing’ capability, so that a user may open and run multiple inquiries, reports and screens, without returning to the menu, as allowed by security.
  • The software has an Ad-Hoc Query language that users may be permitted to use, as allowed by security. The results may be exported to any ODBC compliant Windows software product, or written out to flat or comma delimited files for integration into other applications.
  • Reports may print to printer, screen, or files. Many reports have intelligent filters that allow the user to customize the report by answering the prompts/questions on the filter screen.
  • Listers are active at prompts that reference tables, so that the user does not have to memorize codes.
  • User defined tables are utilized so that the user may customize master file tables to their business in almost all cases.
  • A set of basic tables is delivered with the software, so that the user doesn’t have to start from scratch in defining varieties, operation codes, appellations, transaction codes, wine types, etc.
