FSC has created and implemented a new internet service together with
Rautakirja Group / Lehtipiste. This service is called Noutopiste.
Through Noutopiste (www.lehtipiste.fi) you can order the latest issue of any magazine
that is sold by Lehtipiste for the nearest R-kioski. You can pick the magazine
up after a couple of days. The service itself is free of charge and you pay for
the magazine when you pick it up.
The database interface implemented by FSC, through which the IDMS database
and the server are able to communicate, makes this service possible.
When a customer chooses a magazine, the program checks its availability and
delivery schedules from the database and notifies her/him. When the order is confirmed,
the delivery information goes out from the internet server through the IDMS database
to the warehouse for delivery.
FSC planned and implemented a browser-based application in
Java for Rautakirja Group / Lehtipiste. It is sales data browsing called MYYTIE.
With this application the publishers can browse the operative IDMS database of Lehtipiste for
the sales information of their magazines.
