About the Data Center

In the Data Center, you can enter and update the data used throughout the Veson IMOS Platform (IMOS). Quick links include the records for your master data, along with Distances, items related to messages and configuration, custom data points (elements), and Security. Term lists, many already populated, appear in the Data Center. Most of the data only need to be entered once for use by all users and then needs only occasional updating.

One individual, perhaps an Operations Supervisor or an IT person, should be responsible for updating the Data Center, acting as a gatekeeper and managing the data. Alternatively, each side of the Data Center (Operations and IT) could have its own Administrator. It is important not to have too many people with access, or duplicate records can be entered, resulting in not only confusion but also errors in transactions and accounting.

To access a Data Center workspace, on the main 

 or secondary 
 menu, click its link. The General Data Center Module Right must be selected in Security. Access to other forms and actions also require specific Module Rights.
