If your needing cross-platform compatibility and the ability to update and maintain information without distributing and installing software, a custom web application may be the solution for you. This approach allows for “thin clients” (machines with limited hardware capabilities) to provide access to complex applications delivered from a centralized infrastructure.

Benefits of Using Web Applications

Web applications utilize the interactive nature of websites to provide customized and interactive technologies to deliver a more sophisticated and interactive user experience than your conventional website.

Below are some of the benefits of developing a web application:

  • Cross-platform compatibility – The application itself needs only be developed for a single operating system. There’s no need to develop and test it on all possible operating system versions and configurations, therefore reducing the cost of development. This also makes development and troubleshooting much easier!
  • Accessibility – Unlike traditional applications, web applications are accessible anywhere. The only requirement is an internet connection.
  • Installation and Maintenance – Once a new version or upgrade is installed on the host server, all users can access it right away. There is no need to upgrade each client PC. Rolling out new software can be accomplished more easily, requiring only that users have up-to-date browsers and plugins.
  • Scalability – If an application requires more power to perform tasks, only the server hardware needs to be upgraded. The capacity of web-based software can be increased by “clustering” or running the software on several servers simultaneously. As workload increases, new servers can be added to the system easily.
