It is a web-based application which means, it can be used in any place where the user can access the Internet.

If you have a business management need that isn’t being met, you can set up the program and only install the module for the one feature you want it to perform. Leave all of the other modules untouched until the day finally arrives when you need it. It’s a very creative and intuitive solution for busy people who do not want to be bothered with whistles and bows that they do not need or want.
Best of all- as your business grows- and your business management needs evolve, you can activate additional modules as you need them.
