Web-Based Software is a software you use over the internet with a web browser. You don’t have to install any CDs, download any software, or worry about upgrades. If you use an online bank or web-based email program like Gmail, Hotmail, or Yahoo Mail then you’ve already used web-based software before. Likewise today we find many web-based HR applications. Web-Based software is attracting many organizations around the world. Some reasons for this are the costs incurred in buying expensive software then investing more money on costly hardware and then on top of that buy upgrades recruit IT Staff for maintenance.
Advantages of Web-based Software
Security With traditional software, employees save data on their laptops, USB drives, or portable hard drives. It’s not as safe as it sounds. Laptops are stolen, computers are rarely backed up properly, and it’s unlikely everyone’s machines are up to date with the latest security patches and updates. When you use our web-based software, your data is stored on secure, always-updated, backed-up daily enterprise-class servers in a state-of-the-art, highly-secure data center.
Centralized A key advantage to web-based software is that all your data is centralized and accessible over the web from any computer at any time. You can’t leave something on the wrong computer since everything is stored in one place on the web. You can get to it from anywhere. Safe, secure, and password protected, of course.
Back-Ups Data is backed up every day. Backups are stored in multiple locations for additional redundancy. You could say our backups have backups.
Updates Unlike traditional software that requires you to download and install updates yourself, our products are updated automatically. Whenever you use our products you’re always using the latest and greatest version.
No Installation You do not have to worry about downloading anything or installations. You can simply login through your browser to access your software.
No Compatibility Issues Software used to only be available for certain platforms. There was Windows software, Mac software, etc. Web-based software works on any platform with a web browser and internet connection. Mac, Windows, Linux are all supported.
Access from Anywhere When you use web-based software your office is everywhere. At work, at home, a hotel, at a client’s office, even on your mobile phone. You data is accessible anywhere with internet access.
