Web applications are popular due to the ubiquity of web browsers, and the convenience of using a web browser as a client, sometimes called a thin client. The ability to update and maintain web applications without distributing and installing software on potentially thousands of client computers is a key reason for their popularity, as is the inherent support for cross-platform compatibility. Common web applications include webmail, online retail sales, online auctions, wikis and many other functions.
We build web accessible database driven applications for our clients. These applications run the gamut from real estate listings to sales ordering and inventory. If you need to roll out a service to your customers, and do not want to have to deal with upgrades or installations, drop us a line.
