An App is a small application that can be run on a tablet or a smart phone that can access data within EBMS or write information to EBMS through a wireless network. These flexible EBMS Apps give the user the ability to read or write EBMS data from a convenient portable device without a network connect to the EBMS software. Eagle Business Software is committed to making EBMS data more accessible to mobile users.
The EBMS software has traditionally required hardware that runs the MS Windows operation system or a Microsoft Remote Desktop (RDP) client to access a MS Windows Server from a non-Windows OS. The EBMS Apps allows the user to connect a lean client such as a tablet or smart phone to access EBMS directly.
