Customer A has a few retail shop branches for selling automobile parts. Customer A needs real time stock level (in terms of quantity) of his 20,000 parts among his branches. Items lacking in one branch can be fetched from another branch or A can redirect the customer to another branch with stock. Branch staff use the internet based software as a Point-of-Sales/Inventory Management system. On the other hand, A's accounting staff are located away from the retail branches. They use the same internet software to access the daily sales and purchases inputted by the branches colleagues. They will perform the accounting functions (including paying bills, issuing payment reminders to customers etc) from the central office, away from where the sales/purchases data are entered.
