Automating data exchange for common business processes creates business efficiency by eliminating time spent on paperwork and fixing errors from manually entered data. This in turn allows more time for store personnel to spend on store operation and management, as well as interaction with customers. Automation can be achieved through electronic document exchange of lottery accounting data. The Conexxus Lottery Interface supports data exchange related to lottery by providing information for inventory, daily activity, and invoicing.
NAXML schemas provide transmission information (e.g., ID, date, time of transmission, and status), as well as information regarding the parties involved in the file exchange (e.g., supplier and buyer). The schemas also provide support for reporting elements specific to each document type. For example, inventory documents include the game type and description, retail value, pack details, and pack ticket count. When and how documents are exchanged and how data is populated in the documents must be agreed upon between the retailer and supplier before document exchange occurs.
