Our customers enjoy many advantages because HealthOffice® Anywhere is web-based and hosted.
First, what is web-based software? Web-based software is software you use over the Internet with a web browser. You don't have to install any CDs, download any software, or worry about upgrades. If you use an online bank or web-based email program like Gmail, Hotmail, or Yahoo Mail then you've already used web-based software before.
Second, why is it better for my district? When you use web-based software you don't have to worry about anything technical – you can just do your work. We handle all the security, uptime, backups, upgrades, and “IT guy” stuff. You can stay focused on what you're good at and we'll handle the rest.
Third, what about safety? Web-based software is safer. With traditional software, employees save data on their laptops, USB drives, or portable hard drives. It's not as safe as it sounds. Laptops are stolen, computers are rarely backed up properly, and it's unlikely everyone's machines are up to date with the latest security patches and updates. When you use our web-based software, your data is stored on secure, always-updated, backed-up daily, enterprise-class servers in a state-of-the-art, highly-secure data center.
We use our products every day. We store all our sensitive, confidential data on the same servers that our customers use. We trust our entire business to our products and security policies. You can feel comfortable that we're protecting our data the same way we are recommending you protect your data.
With traditional software programs, users must download and install the programs onto their computers or have it installed on servers in their district. IT staff has to spend substantial money on equipment as well as substantial time maintaining and updating the software.
When software and services are web-based, there is nothing to download, install, maintain, or update. Web-based services and software work anywhere you have an Internet connection, on any computer, at any time. Web-based programs are as easy to access as opening your web browser and going to a website.
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.
All your data is together in one place. A key advantage to web-based software is that all your data is centralized and accessible over the web from any computer at any time. You can't leave something on the wrong computer since everything is stored in one place on the web. You can get to it from anywhere. Access is safe, secure, and password protected, of course.
Your data is automatically backed up daily. Our backups are stored in multiple locations for additional redundancy. You could say our backups have backups. We've never lost anyone's data and we won't lose yours.
Your data is safe and secure with us. Our state-of-the-art servers are protected by biometric locks and 24-hour surveillance. Our software and infrastructure is updated regularly with the latest security patches. The traffic on our network flows behind an enterprise-class firewall to keep your data safe.
You're always using the latest and greatest. Unlike traditional software that requires you to download and install updates yourself, our products are updated automatically. Whenever you use our products you're always using the latest and greatest version.
There's nothing to install, ever. With our software there's nothing to download or install. Just log in with the web-browser you already have (Microsoft Edge, Internet Explorer, Google Chrome, Safari, or Firefox). It's just like your online bank or web-based email program.
You'll never have to ask “Is it compatible?” software used to be available for certain platforms. There was Windows software, Mac software, etc. Our software works on any platform with a web browser and Internet connection. Mac, Windows, and Linux are all supported.
Everyone you trust has access to the data. Since everyone you work with logs into the same centralized account, you have a single database with everything in one place. No more worrying about who has the latest information: Everyone has it.
You can work from home, work, or on the road. When you use web-based software your office is everywhere; at work, home, a hotel, a client's office, even on your mobile phone. You data is accessible anywhere with Internet access.
Our software is web-based, making it safe and easy. In addition our web-based software eliminates the need for you to install, update, or download anything.
