Browser-Smart Client Hybrids

Smart Clients have clear advantages in terms of advanced capabilities, ease-of-use, and rapid development at a reduced cost.  However, there are valid reasons (and needs) for browser-based business applications.   For example, some businesses simply cannot dictate that all end users install an application.  In addition, sometimes a rich, highly-interactive end user experience is not needed.

Under these scenarios, Practical Computer Applications (PCA) develops “composite applications” that deliver the capabilities and benefits of both Smart Client and browser-based approaches.  The Smart Client application is used by the business internally to create and maintain database records, and manage the application administrative functions, and the resulting database records and reports are made available to customers via the browser interface (ASP.NET).
