Security

Security is one of our top priorities. We encrypt sensitive data using strong encryption methods. We use PostgreSQL and MongoDB database which provide native database access control to the data store.
    At the application layer, we designed and implemented comprehensive data access control capabilities to enable LogixPath user site administrators to control WHO can perform WHAT operation on WHICH type of element.
    We also provide site traffic monitoring capabilities. Site administrators can monitor their site visits including access date time, IP addresses, usernames, client device/browser types, the features visited and the operations performed.

Company Site Administration

A company site can have one or more site administrators. Site Administrators can manage login users and user data access controls. The data access control specifies which users have what data access permissions on which types of elements. The data access permission types include read, modify, add, delete, export, and import.

Globalization

Customization

Site administrators can customize their sites' List of Values, such as inventory categories, currency conversion rates. Many business elements support User Defined Attributes to enable users to customize attributes of an individual object.
    If a company would like to have a fully customized site acting as its company web portal, such as having its own URL domain name, home page, contact us page, the company can choose the Dedicated Deployment license model. LogixPath will collaborate with the company to create a dedicated and fully customized company website or portal.
