hi Faiz, My GOD you have ask all question I think the right Microsoft Partner
help you in this but whatever I know I am answering:
1) There are many ways to generate the PO from HQ , you can generate by
items, by department, category, supplier, base on the item sold and the PO
can be by store also.
2) The HQ sample database and come with default settings, however you can
play with it and it not require much to do with HQ very simple and detail
step by step guideslines are avaialble with manual.
3) Users and Security at the level of HQ is created in HQ itself, however
store level are create at store and that's the reason it is called store
specific data when setting the HQ and store together. You can create the
logon from cashier and give the appropriate rights for the things to be
accessable to them. also you have 30 security levels to set and for my
expeirence no one can use more than 5-10 maximum.
4) Yes there is report in HQ for the daily sales by store and you have also
abilities to customized any report for your need.
5) Getting Inventory through purchase order invovlve your payable whereas
getting inventory through transfer in involve the stores and related other
stuff. Well you can also do transfer in from supplier but there is the
concept of PO and once you raised PO to vendor then you received it throught
the receiving whereas the transfer in is the direct way of getting items into
6) bases of restock and reorder levels must be depened on bussiness to
busssines, for retail of cloth, shoes etc can be anything so it depends on
you, however you can set your reorder and restock level base on the sales.
7) HQ provide you to have one cost to all store or a different cost to the
item, the store level cost sometimes help you when you are running the apps
to different geographical location or may be same location but many different
factors invovlve for the item to get in to the store i.e. you may pay one
store more money for the friegh and custom then the other store which is
located somewhere else have low cost. somereason might be the distance of the
stores there are couple of more example in reallife. so you can maintain
store specific cost even using the HQ.
8) bar code is the coding system where you using the scanning devices to
read the item, it can be a key value for identifiy one item. You are running
big bussienss where you have thousand or may millions of items now at the
sale point if user type it manually your customer then wait till he finish
where barcoding scanning device read the printed code from a symbolic sign
into the code and retireve the detail info of the items.
I know I not given you more may be but when you go in deep you will get more
better to approach a partner who will sit with you and give you all the

Have you already purchased RMS HQ, or are you considering purchase?
If you have already purchased, you MAY have access to online training
through the Microsoft CustomerSource website. This is only available if
you are on a maintenence plan with Microsoft. I'm not sure of the
availability to customers outside the United States. Anyway, this may
be available to you and would be a good starting point for your questions.
If you are considering purchase, you should be working with a reseller
who should be able to provide answers.
If you are trying to become a partner, training materials are available
through the distributor in your area.

Please DO NOT respond to me directly but post all responses here in the
newsgroup so that all can share the information.
