Anahaw POS Version 3 – Enhanced for a Future-Ready Retail Management

Anahaw POS Version 3 – Enhanced for a Future-Ready Retail Management 768 487 Exist Software Labs

Six years have passed since we developed Exist Anahaw Retail Platform and pushed it into the market. The goal was to build a system that will enable the retail businesses in understanding their customers, have an efficient operation, and be steadfast in a fast-changing retail environment. Today, we are proud that Exist Anahaw achieved this and is continuously improving.

This 2021, we released Exist Anahaw Version 3. This newly updated system will continually push the platform’s boundaries by adapting modern technologies to further enhance technical capabilities by making it more customizable, providing more hardware support, and improving overall performance. By using Anahaw Version 3, both clients and those who are looking for a new platform will be able to use and check the right technology to improve their overall business operations.

Designed for medium to large retail enterprises, Anahaw is a fully integrated retail solution that provides today’s retailers with end-to-end functionality. But the journey is not done in innovating and giving a better experience to our clients.

Exist developed Anahaw Version 3 that serves as the upgraded and future-ready POS system.

Introducing Anahaw Version 3:

The old version was a browser-based software which is limiting and dependent. Our team decided to build Anahaw Version 3 using Java and upgraded it as a robust software that performs better memory handling and processing, can easily connect even with new POS peripherals, and can flexibly integrate APIs. 

We have also upgraded its local document database enhancing its performance. Now we also have local reports that you can use to check transactions made daily, from your sales, items sold and tenders accepted. This also includes BIR-required reports. 

POS software is now easier for everyone to audit and inspect. It has been updated with the latest BIR Requirement, and we can easily comply with the latest memorandums. By the way, we’ll have “Athlete’s Discount” available soon.

Anahaw Version 3 is now more intuitive as its interface has a cleaner and lighter feel so the person who operates it can easily navigate the POS application. POS functions are easily accessed with button selections. Users can perform transactions like scanning items, applying discounts, and tendering payments making it faster for the cashier to do the transaction. Buttons can easily be activated with the use of mnemonics or alt-key combinations. No more labeling of keys, no more memorizing of shortcuts. 

We have added a customer service feature to facilitate returns and replacement properly. This feature clearly defines the separation of POS transactions with your Customer Service transactions. As for your IT or DevOps, they can use Anahaw Version 3’s Command Center, to have updates or patches installed right from your headquarters, view the terminal’s current build number, and check the logs on transfers made between stores to headquarters and vice versa.

With the introduction of Exist Anahaw Version 3, our team is delighted to introduce this newly upgraded platform to all of our clients as we start our transition to fully deploy the new version this year. Exist will continue to support Anahaw Version 1 until this year and will then be tagged as a Legacy System by 2022 thus ending its lifecycle.

We are excited to see Exist Anahaw Version 3 rolled out to our clients and experience the difference!

The Power of One for Decision Support

The Power of One for Decision Support 768 487 Exist Software Labs

A FREE Learning Session on why Every Decision Matters

 

This event will be held on June 24, 2021. Click here to register!

More than ever, outcomes are determined by the quality of care team decisions and alignment of decision-making across teams! Care suffers when members of care teams — physicians, nurses, and pharmacists — look up clinical information on disparate and unconnected resources. 

To truly improve the quality of care, reduce unwanted variability and reduce costs, you need to empower all healthcare providers and patients with trusted and consistent information. This means having actionable evidence-based content from one trusted source that works across the continuum of care and aligns with best practices.

Join us as Wolters Kluwer and Exist host a learning session on “The Power of One for Decision Support” and take a deeper look into the industry’s most comprehensive medication and disease solution to support hospital clinicians’ decision making and help enhance patient safety.  See how Exist’s Merx hospital information system provides quick access to UpToDate and Lexicomp to align care teams with the same evidence-based guidance — that translates into a better, more “harmonized” care for patients!

 

Here are the speakers that will help us make each decision count!

Michelle Topacio, Partner Business Lead, ASEAN Region, Wolters Kluwer Clinical Effectiveness


Michelle has more than 15 years experience in the healthcare industry covering pharmaceutical, medical devices and healthcare IT. She joined Wolters Kluwer Clinical Effectiveness Division in February 2021 and is responsible in offering Clinical Decision Support resources for the Philippine market.

PBCOM-Exist enriches years-long partnership; Bringing more banking tech upgrades

PBCOM-Exist enriches years-long partnership; Bringing more banking tech upgrades 768 487 Exist Software Labs

PBCOM’s Chief Operating Officer, John Howard Medina, had this to say:

“The team at EXIST has brought us several technology innovations over the last few years and we look forward to continuing to push the digital envelope with them.”

Philippine Bank of Communications has strengthened its partnership with Exist Software Labs, Inc. who has been a key technology consultant and implementation ally.  By this, alliance allows both parties to continue to co-develop the innovations needed for the bank’s digital channels.

This partnership began in 2016 with the creation of the omni-channel PBCOM Online Platform (POP) and in 2019 the PBCOMobile self-service banking app.

Exist’s VP for Engineering shared his excitement on flourishing the said partnership.

“The partnership between PBCOM and Exist is doing great. It is built on mutual trust and a common commitment to ensuring success to PBCOM’s digital roadmap. As a technology partner, we continuously aim to work closely with PBCOM to ensure that the most appropriate and practical technology options will always be available for PBCOM’s digital strategy.”

Here is the timeline that marks the milestones that Exist and PBCOM achieved throughout the years:

PBCOM tapped Exist to develop POP

In 2016, PBCOM decided to relaunch its electronic channels after years of remaining dormant despite introducing online banking as early as 2003. PBCom Online platform (POP) is a retail omnichannel digital banking service.

POP was launched to the public

POP is an omnichannel banking application that allows its users to perform secure banking transactions like the following:

• Viewing account balances
• Monitoring transaction history
• Downloading bank statements
• Transferring money
• Paying bills
• Sending money to third-party bank accounts

Internet and mobile versions of the app have the same look and feel, making it easier to understand and use.

It is within this year also that PBCOM subscribed to Exist Maintenance Service for POP. This agreement between the two is annually renewed.

Exist developed the OTP platform for POP

This was added to let POP have multi-factor authentication to improve its security and avoid unauthorized access. Exist also had several Change Orders with PBCOM in 2018 for the constant improvement of POP.

PBCOM and Exist are under a contract valid until 2025

Again, PBCOM subscribed to the Maintenance Service for PBCOMobile. Exist ceaselessly ensures that PBCOM’s applications are performing efficiently and error-free. Currently, the two’s contract has a 5-year lock-up, which actively demonstrates that they will work hand-in-hand for PBCOM’s applications and online technologies until 2025.
