A web application is accessible anywhere a browser has access to the internet. Web applications hit a URL, and the software is loaded into the browser. Regular software requires installation on each device that it is needed to be used on, which if you have a few hundred devices, it can become quite an effort to install and update, thus increasing costs. A web application can be built so that all that has to be done is hit the web app URL, and it will load all assets, and timed reloads can happen that install updates.
Creating and rolling out extensions to the web app is also much more straightforward than installable software. Updates are automatically applied for the user when they either next load the application or reload. This is much faster to roll out to the entire network and less time consuming and frustrating for the end-users.
Reduced admin time
If your team members are located worldwide, a web application can reduce the admin time required to get up and running. Training time is also reduced as we can design interfaces to look and operate like a website providing familiarity.
Our web apps are easily portable as they are not tied to a particular vendor (us or otherwise) or host. As they are cloud-based, they can be picked up and moved without hassle.
