The database engine sits at the heart of any Point of Sale software. Since 2007, Tower Systems has been using the NexusDB database engine with its Point of Sale software.
We chose NexusDB after a thorough search of database engine products from around the world. It has proven strength in vertical applications like ours. It removes the need for a DBA and is extremely easy to install. For us and our customers, NexusDB makes deployment easy and delivers this at a lower cost.
We are in good company using NexusDB. Other companies using this database engine include: Honda, IBM, Burger King, Ricoh, KPMG, Motorola and Shell – to name a few.
NexusDB has been designed to maximize speed, minimize maintenance and preserve data integrity. This is important to the newsagents, jewellers, bike retailers and gift shops using our Point of Sale software. As a true client/server database, NexusDB is a unique component suite. This design decision has many benefits over typical file-based databases: better data integrity, better performance and better scalability.
In tech speak, NexusDB is an ultra-fast, client/server database engine designed for businesses like those we serve – abe bigger. It implements the international standard ISO/IEC 9075 – SQL:2003, including most of the Core SQL functionality as well as many of the additional features defined in the standard. NexusDB also augments SQL:2003 with extensions to expose vendor-specific functionality.
