Web applications for your business!

What is a web application?

Web applications run through web browsers (Chrome, Internet Explorer, Safari, Firefox etc) unlike traditional applications which run on a single PC or server. They require no complex installation process as the browser provides all the functionality required. Web applications can be accessed from any device with a web browser – desktop, laptop, tablet or phone!

How can web applications help improve my business?

Web applications provide a central source for customers/employees to interact with your business. This makes the applications much easier to update, maintain and backup.

A customer or employee can access your web app (much like they do a website) via a secure login and password.

Web applications can be built to serve many different purposes, but here are some ideas to get you thinking:

  • Process payments online for your products or services
  • Track business operations to help identify issues and help improve processes
  • Automate manual tasks to reduce cost and human error
  • Organise and manage customer/employee data and handle communications
  • Capture and report on business KPI and performance targets
  • Share and collaborate on projects which have outgrown spreadsheets and/or legacy database systems
  • Make your business functions available online 24/7

Are web applications secure?

All incoming and outgoing requests should be secured by using a secure connection known as HTTPS, which digitally encrypts all data flowing back and forth. In addition all saved sensitive data should be encrypted meaning the data is scrambled using a complex algorithm.
