started building web based software seven years ago and we
have been staying at the forefront of Internet technology
ever since. We keep current, which means you get the most
up-to-date software money can buy.
What is Web Based software?
We refer to web based software as an application designed
to be accessed via a browser. The rules of interaction are
slightly different than the old style client-server software,
but the user experience is the same, if not enhanced. The
web based application is designed, programmed and installed
on the server and is ready to be used. No need to install
anything on the client, all that is required is an installation
on the server. The user opens Internet Explorer, enters the
address (url) of the server and the application responds by
displaying the login page. What the user sees is the latest
release of the software and the most current data, every time.
Since the software is designed to be used over the internet
or your intranet, support and upgrades can both be performed
remotely, and your contact at Breakwater can see your data
in real time when troubleshooting issues.
Advantages of web based software:
- Only a server piece to install (you
always get the current version of the software, every time
- Data can be accessed from any computer
connected to the network (LAN or Internet depending on security)
- The application can be deployed over
- Training is minimized due to widespread
knowledge of the browser piece
- Printing of all screens, tables and
grids is always available
- Support is more efficient and up to
the minute due to remote connection possibility
As we did seven years ago when we switched technology to
offer better and more up to date software services, we are
continually on the look out for new technologies that will
enhance our and our client's business position. We recently
adapted a new concept of Team services, allowing us to maintain
a live web site for all clients to browse, containing relevant
product information and documentation, and access to our
issues reporting and posting software.
We are currently moving towards a new concept in data amalgamation
allowing clients to gather data from a multitude of back
office systems (other large and small software packages
running any kind of database) and display it in a central
navigation system, customizable to each user's data requirements.
Stay tuned for more technology advancement that will allow
you to take advantage of the data already stored on your
site's many computers and servers.
