Every organisation has a unique company structure and related terminology, with control being exercised at different levels in that structure. The Infologic software has been designed to meet all management, accounting and financial control requirements in the following way.

The System enables any organisational structure to be defined, as well as the level in that structure at which critical business functions are controlled.
The Control Module is responsible for administering the relationship between the organisational structure and the business functions.
In addition the Control Module allows the authorization of Business Entities per User at every level of the structure, and thereafter controls that access.
The Control Module offers a simple means for Users to create their own personalized menus and for specifying an initial menu, thereby providing a second level of security and access control
