TradeSwitch® uses a hierarchical structure to map your distribution chain, with your organization or business unit at the top. The distribution chain is then built with your dynamic node types to replicate your actual business structure perfectly. Whether you use wholesalers, merchants, dealers or traders, agents or foot soldiers, it doesn’t make a difference to TradeSwitch®. MobileData will guide you through the configuration and setup process.
The above figure provides a simple example of a possible distribution chain. At the top of the chain is the channel and underneath wholesalers and merchants. This chain is configured in such a way that only the merchant nodes may trade, using an EFT / POS device. In the bottom right-hand corner the sale of a voucher is depicted.
