The Internet is at the height of its power when it comes to commerce. Every year, the Internet facilitates trillions of dollars in retail sales. In 2011, it lead to an astounding $1.1 trillion. The Internet’s ability to connect customers from all over the world has lead to a revolution in commerce, trade, communication — really, everything!
For this reason, web applications have grown in popularity and importance. Web applications are online portals that businesses can use to access business-related files and programs on any computer. The beauty of web applications is that they can work on most browsers such as Firefox, Safari, and Chrome. Employees are able to log in, do their work, and access business-related information at home, in a coffee shop, or even on their phones!
There are three kinds of portal development tiers for web applications: User Services, Business Services, and Data Services. They cover all areas of business for both employees and employers. By using these tiers, businesses can increase their productivity and keep constant track over their progress (or lack thereof). Web based applications are also useful in that they can be updated and fixed without having to install software on thousands (if not) millions of separate computers!
As a result, web application development services have skyrocketed in popularity. These services provide businesses of all kinds and sizes the tools they need to set up safe, fast, and cost-effective solutions to their online needs. Web apps can be customized to the specific needs of a business and its customers. With business-to-business (B2B) web portals, companies can also contact other companies (such as partners and clients) directly without the hassles that come with conventional communication such as email and phone.
