The Resource Manager application is the engine that drives the entire OSAS Accounting System: it holds the data files that store basic information used by functions in every other application, it contains default settings used by individual workstation terminals, and it manages access and tracks usage for each application installed. Resource Manager also contains the powerful Global Inquiry tool that helps you drill through your accounting data to find information throughout your system. Because it provides the operating environment that holds other applications, Resource Manager is required for every OSAS application.
