Web-based software offers a range of business advantages over traditional desktop applications, allowing businesses to communicate, connect and work faster and more efficiently than ever before, and gives every business the opportunity to succeed and achieve great things.
What is web-based software anyway? Web-based software is software you use over the internet and access with a web browser. This saves the hassle of downloading and installing complex software packages from the internet or from CDs. Best of all, you never have to worry about updates; ensuring you always have the latest version at your fingertips. If you use online banking, or an online email systems such as Gmail then you’re already using web-based software.
What can it do for me? Whether you’re a small startup or a multinational corporation, web-based software can help you get where you need to go. Web-based software is great for all businesses as you don’t have to worry about the technical side of the software. Companies like us handle all of the backups, updates, security and uptime, so you can stay focussed on what you’re good at while we handle the rest.
So who else uses web-based software? It may surprise you that almost everyone uses web-based software in some way, shape or form in their everyday lives. From internet banking and online emails through to Facebook and Google (both of which can be considered web-based software), the web is enabling companies to connect in new and profound ways, which is why so many utilise the capabilities of the cloud and web-based technology in their businesses. While it is hard to put an exact number on it, many would say that every internet user has encountered web-based software or technology at one point or another, including us here at Capital Planning. We walk the walk with you and use the same same software as our customers. We trust our software and systems and store all our sensitive and confidential information on the same servers as our customers use, so you can have complete confidence in the software we provide.
What makes it so good then? First off, web-based software is far safer and much more secure than traditional software installed on a computer. Traditionally, employees of a company would save information to their laptops, USB drive or portable hard drives which all carry a great risk of being lost or stolen, and while many backup their important data, computers are very rarely backed up properly. Traditional software also relies on the user to update to the latest version in order to patch any bugs or security flaws in the software. This is where web-based software comes to the rescue. When you use web-based software, including software developed by Capital Planning, your data and important information is stored securely on servers around the world, with state-of-the-art encryption and industry leading security.
This sounds too good to be true. Surely there must be a downside, right? Well that’s the beauty of web-based technology and cloud computing, there is almost no downside to utilising it in your business. Apart from needing an internet connection there is no reason not to choose a web-based software alternative, and let’s be honest, who doesn’t have access to the internet these days? Many people actually look at this downside as one of the key advantages of web-based software over traditionally installed software, as it means that all your information is centralised and accessible over the web at any time. You can no longer misplace information on the wrong computer or device since everything is stored in one place on the web, so you have access to it for wherever you are.
