Street-Savvy User Interface
||Immediate validation of user
dramatically reducing data entry errors.
||All data is stored in an open database for easy access. Most SQL databases,
such as Sybase and
MS-SQL, are supported. The open database lets your own staff use third-party tools, like

|Being object oriented, the afs:TRADE application may be
customized by you or AFS.
