ERS started in 1989 and began to develop and implement Windows based solutions during 1995. At the same time ERS became Microsoft Solution Providers further committing to the technology we had adopted. Using Microsoft SQL Server as our database server has proven beyond doubt that data integrity and optimal performance is not a nice to have feature but a standard feature of SQL Server. One of features we liked most about using SQL Server was its ability to scale to meet the most demanding of requirements when required. The user interface was developed in record time using an in-house rapid application development tool, Business Retail Management suite - (BRM), which allowed the rapid generation of code and also provided the user with a clean uniform look and feel within the application.
If you control a chain of Supermarkets or run your own store and need a simple to use reliable Windows based Back office system, ERS's RetailManager is bound to improve your bottom line.
