Lightning Speed a buzz word everyone will hear while talking about the speed of the application / database performance. BPartner solutions were never involved in benchmarking its application till last week, since we felt that the application runs faster in most of the Desktop Computers / Laptops / Cash Registers.
Last week in one of our customer place, we planned for a migration routine from existing software to Relax POS. The customer was keen on knowing the performance comparison chart before and after migration. Now we were forced to benchmark the application, instead of taking only one software, we took 3 different software against Relax POS Solution.
Benchmark against 3 different POS Software (national and international applications). The comparison was done against the Fresh installation with 69,839 items. Relax POS solution being installed and migrated from data from other software and for the rest of the application, we have inserted 69+k items manually.
Moreover, Since the its fresh installation, we are not going to benchmark the Transaction saving part, as we want to do it after 3 months (After we get substantial data in the transaction tables).
