Web applications

Nowadays, thanks to the Web 2.0 explosion, there’s a general tendency for business software development in shifting their desktop applications into web applications. Thus, employees using that software communicate more easily, have full access to the latest version of the application and the maintenance costs are seriously diminished.

The development of a web application is a complex process because it involves features for various departments inside a company. Your gains come from the fast information transfer between users, the platform, operating system and geographic location independence and the installation time which is almost negligible.

Web applications are particularly useful where a great deal of operators have to submit information stored in a central location. Companies involved in logistics, sales, couriers, banks and insurance, publications, all have something to gain by employing this kind of business software development.

Practically all you need is a computer connected to the Internet along with the application login information. Another big advantage of next generation web applications is the great integration with mobile devices. By using a mobile phone or a PDA with online access, the user can send or download information from a central database, information which he can then use in a business meeting.
