The PMAS system comes with system programs to insure the integrity of the security, audit and program update functions. The client controls how their work is processed using WorkFlow Processing. Online documentation and Help keys assist in answering client questions while processing. PMAS utilizes true client-server processing and can access through the Internet Systems Management features including:
Security controls access to all libraries, programs and data files. The user is assigned a security level which controls access to properties, menus, data elements and functions. Menus can be customized to display only those items that a user may have access to for processing. A Master Security Officer is designated for all security management functions, and access to specific properties is limited by user identification.
Detailed instructions are available for all data entry and processing functions by pressing the help button. Search functions can be used to seek specific topics for which help is required. Online voice-animated video screens are available to show and tell the user how to perform selected functions. A tutorial database of sample properties is available for practice prior to using real data.
Work Flow / Process Routing
PMAS provides the user total control of processing. By interacting with the user through menus and interactive screen prompts, the system provides the needed information to control the specific data and reports required by the user, as well as when it is needed. Information can be distributed internally or outside the organization via Internet or intranet access.
Internet / Intranet Access
The PMAS system uses the Internet with systems management programs to:
Client / Server
- synchronize updates with the home office and remote sites
- email support information to clients
- provide the latest updates to PMAS on the PMAS web site
- provide a high-speed, low-cost optin for sites to communicate with the home office
PMAS is designed using a client/server concept. The files and batch processing occur on the server, while the graphical user interface (GUI) screen management and data display is handled by the desktop computer, known as the client. All client programs are 32-bit and require Windows 95/98/NT or 2000.
The system will track all changes made to the Property/Lease Abstract data base, indicating which client made the change, the old and new data, and when the change occurred. The appropriate security officer can list these changes at any time.
Automated Update Distribution
The Client system is updated when program changes or revised menus are loaded on the server, subject to user configuration and authorization levels.
