The General

The General ™

A Standard Enterprise Application Backend

Franchises Offered Now!

The General,
is an application that runs as a less specialised, open and adaptable system. It’s Accounting with Payroll and Inventory Management (plus Purchase & Sales order Tracking).
Included is a Generalised Asset Maintenance Scheduling, Inspection and Response System. Factory production scheduling and quality assurance are also covered. We can even help you achieve a high degree of embedded trust and automation using “the Internet Of Things”

The General utilises Blockchains to enable advanced Trading in Services, Commodities and Items (Goods) including the production, quality control, sale and distribution, or leasing of (possibly complex) items from Farm, Mine, Quarry, Mill, Nursery, Market, & Factory-Networks, through Wholesale-Networks, to Retail-Networks and finally Consumers.
  • Trades Service People and other Service Providers can utilise the system as if it were a simple cloud-based, mobile-enabled system
  • Bolting-on capacities in cooperation with ITCSA is entirely possible, at negotiable rates
  • The advantages of Blockchains include

  • a fundamental immutability of transactions, even for documents referenced on a Block but stored elsewhere (eg S3 Storage)
  • Also, many parties can (in top-shelf systems) be involved in automatically validating (or otherwise) each contract or transaction (“Smart Contracts”)
  • With an inter-business networked system employing Smart Contracts, productivity is increased and lost time minimised, because each transaction’s details (due to smart contract action and reliability) are indisputable and will not need to be checked by other parties to the transaction, on behalf of their trading partners
  • All parties to each transaction possess all appropriate details (and only appropriate details for each party)
  • A Blockchain may be fully networked with other traders & authorities, partially networked, or operated as a “singleton” network
  • Digital currencies (eg Stellar’s “Lumens” or Ripple’s “XRP”) can be integrated with our blockchains to greatly facilitate cross-border financial transactions
  • Real Machines, Devices and Objects can become part of the Internet Of Things, enabling Automatic Quality/Other Control Smart Contracts
  • These contracts can be integrated into a production/distribution or maintenance system
  • Other advantages include the offer of Distributed (Shared) yet Private Ledgers, with the use of “channels”. IBM’s systems guarantee authenticity and security of transactions

    Very Admirable!
