Web Apps / Web Applications / Browser Based Applications - whatever you like to call them, these are some of the best solutions for users. Web Apps are applications programmed so that users can access and use the web application with a basic computer and an up-to-date web browser like Internet Explorer, Firefox, Chrome, Edge, etc.
Why Web Applications
Browser based applications provide the ability to interact with data in near real time without the hassle of installing software on the local computer. This means very little down time (if any) for users' computers and access to the web application. Users will also always be using the most current and same versions of the software automatically - no worries about installing or someone accidently using an older version that hasn't been updated to correct a bug.
Web App Security
Web applications are secured using the same encryption and practices that banks are required to use and can be updated without impacting each users' access to their computer. Communication is encrypted using the same standard web security technology that banks and military use to ensure the data being communicated between the server and the user's machine is private. We can also further enhance security by encrypting files saved to the application and implementing "best practice" security standards on the host machine and host environment.
Web App Stragety
There are two major categories that web apps fall into "Internet" (available anywhere) and "Intranet" (available only on the local network.) Intranet based web applications are easier to control who can access the application when and Internet applications provide for access to the application from anywhere in the world. Whichever category you opt for, you'll need to have a host computer to serve your application. Aaroco's team has extensive experience setting up and maintaining host computers and we are able to setup hosting for your web app utilizing resources ranging from your old windows professional desktop PC to professional servers housed in military grade data centers. We'll use our experience to help you with this decision and to setup a plan to match your company's growth.
