Manageability

The three-tier structure, application, user interface and data, separates different logical layers and makes the application more manageable, maintainable and easier to integrate with other software.

Visibility

Modular approach

Easily integrates with existing business platforms. The solution can be a standalone capability or a phased end-to-end deployment, providing the flexibility to meet an organization's specific needs cost effectively.

Scalability

The three-tier design makes the application easily scalable by giving it the flexibility to be run on a number of servers.
