Ever wish there were more hours in a day? A well designed application using the latest technology could do just that – give you extra time, up to 30 minutes per day!
Rich Internet Applications (RIAs) are web-based programs that combine the best characteristics of web-based applications such as accessibility on-the-go and easy-to-use, built-in controls, but work more independently of the server than traditional web applications, ensuring a faster, more responsive experience for the user.
“RIA technologies allow software developers to take it to the next level for the web,” said Krister Ungerboeck, president of Ungerboeck Systems International. “It’s like the difference between high-speed and dial-up connections. Rich Internet Applications (RIAs) are faster and create a richer, more productive user experience. For someone who works in an application all day, an RIA can save 30 minutes a day over a traditional web application. That’s a huge time savings.”
According to Web Development Tools and Articles, “Applications that try and interact with users using static html pages, need to constantly talk to a web server to manipulate data and create new web pages for the user. Performance of these applications is always dependent on the number of round trips needed to the server and how fast the new pages can be created and displayed to the user.”
Because RIAs’ interactive features are application-based, they require fewer trips to retrieve data from the server, which allows them to be faster, more engaging and much more usable than previous generations of web applications. Instead of constantly downloading information, RIAs only consult the server when necessary.
“Traditionally, web applications have delivered less productivity than desktop applications. However, that’s changing with the rise of RIA technologies like Flash, Microsoft Silverlight and HTML5,” said Ungerboeck. “Over the past 3 years, Ungerboeck has been investing 75% of our R&D efforts on web-based solutions that use RIA technology.”
RIA technology is front and center in Ungerboeck version 20. A hallmark of RIAs, v20’s web-based technology ensures faster load times and quicker response rates, which means greatly increased productivity. Users will receive significant time savings from its intuitive controls and thoughtfully designed dashboards. Increased productivity means better customer service and higher sales for your organization.
If your software provider is using web-based technology that was created before 2010, then they are not using RIA technology. Contact us today and we’ll show you how v20 will increase your productivity by using the latest technology.
