We do a fair amount of custom work at Sephone. Customers come to us with a very detailed problem and we provide a web app to solve the issue. Sometimes our web app will replace a paper trail, another application, or lots of labor of a person in front of a spreadsheet.

Advantages of a Custom Web App

There are tons of advantages of custom web apps. Here are just a few.

Data Portability

The information that resides in the web app can be accessed from anywhere. Unlike desktop applications, spreadsheets and paperwork, the information can be accessed anywhere in the world. Forgot to check something before you left for the day? No problem, just login from home and take a peak. Need to double check something from a customer location? That’s pretty easy too. In addition to being accessed from many locations, this information can also be accessed by many people, if need be.

Not only is the information portable, it’s hard to lose too. It will also be safe and sound in your web app.

No Software Compatibility Issues

Web apps run through your browser (Firefox, Internet Explorer, Safari, or Google Chrome); there is no additional software to install. Also, there are no versioning problems; everybody will have the current version. Have you ever been emailed an MS Word file, only to be informed that you need a new version to open the file? That does not happen with web apps.

Custom means Custom

When you have us build a custom web app, that is what you get, a custom piece of software that is built to your exacting specifications. If it’s not right, it’s pretty easy to change as well. You really can have it your way.

Hidden Advantages

Most of our we apps are built to a standard that will allow most of the functionality to work on a mobile device. Many times, your iPhone, Android phone, or tablet will simply work much like your normal browser. If you request, we can build a whole mobile interface that is sure to work with your device.

By letting your web app do some of the grunt work with your data, you can free up some time from your employees to allow them to do other things. It’s surprising how quick your return on investment can be.
