Actually, no. There is a common misconception that only applications that run within a web-browser are cloud-based but that’s not the case: the key question always when deciding whether an application is cloud based or not is to ask where the data gets stored. Is it stored locally or at a remote location or in the “cloud” as it’s popularly known and the answer in PropCo’s case , is the latter, i.e. the cloud.
Web-apps are notoriously slow, limited, and simply do not deliver the kind of high-quality Enterprise-level user experience that we deliver to our clients. Ever been in the middle of browsing a website and your web browser crashes? Is that really the way you would like to run your business software?
Also: consider the risks associated with software which is publicly available over the web and is only protected by a wafer-thin layer of traditional username & password style security. With PropCo, your data is securely stored, and managed from a robust local platform.
The PropCo EnterpriseTM desktop system actually runs using a local ‘app’, much like the ones you download from Google Play or the App Store for mobile devices: just like ‘Google Earth’, all your data is in the cloud, but the user experience is controlled by a small application running on your computer.
PropCo uses its own ‘app’ as an interface to access your data. The result is a better, more secure platform that you can rely on to support your business: PropCo Software is able to employ more powerful security mechanisms than the in-browser applications that are commonly marketed as ‘cloud-based’ software.
