The General, is an application that runs as an 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 help you achieve a high degree of embedded trust and automation using “the Internet Of Things”
The General utilises Permissioned Blockchains to enable advanced, auditable 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 Consumers. Items can contain up to six layers of complexity, in a scope which may easily be increased to suit your needs. Governance of a Network is of utmost importance, in many ways, and needs to be embedded in the development process as much as in production.
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 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

Do you have an idea for a commercial Business Network for which you could envisage a Front End App .. if only someone had the “Backend” Accounting Database expertise you need .. ?
We are offering Licenses for our System, ‘The General’, an adaptable Enterprise Accounting Application Backend.
We develop on the back of a skeleton Angular App (which we collaborate on), generated (from our definitions and “chaincode”) as a generalised, powerful and comprehensive starting point for your Application.
The Front End that we adapt from base code generated by The General Blockchain (having adapted it to your needs) accesses the Blockchain Ledgers via Backend API’s, connected to the Middleware
The Middleware – residing on your micro-app servers in the cloud – is developed by us (in node.js) to match the Front End app, acting as a sort of secure ‘bridge’ between front and back ends).
Your Front End, which we develop in collaboration with you, accesses these backend API’s to create, read, update & delete records (and query or search them) while controlled by the node.js transaction/contract functions’ logic.
ITCSA provides full support as per the Response-Time Priority Agreement, to ensure the success of our Project.
If you have the vision of a Commercial System or Network that is independent, sustainable & marketable, we will support its development according to agreements between you, the other founding Members, and us.
You will need sound commercial ideas and a viable Business Plan.
