During installation, Herkimer connects a highly secured “Data Vault” to your network. The Data Vault’s primary functions are:
- To provide a secure connection between your point-of-purchase system and online store
- To scan the database of your point-of-purchase system
- To shuttle information to and from your on-line store
To prevent attempts to compromise your in-store network: the Data Vault is programmed to respond only to requests from your Web site -- this insulates your point-of-purchase system from the rest of the Internet.
Timber maintains a backup copy of your stock levels at all times. In the event that your in-store network goes down, your Web site will continue to function uninterrupted. When your in-store network is re-booted, Timber will notify you of any Web sales.
