Web Based? What the heck is that? Isn’t everything “Web Based”?
A Short Software History Lesson
Back in the old days, like in the 1990’s and before, software used to be sent to you on a floppy disk or CD and you would actually load the software on to your local computer. This was problematic, especially if your computer crashed, or someone broke in and stole it – but there were no other options at that time.
Around the year 2000 software companies started to transition to the SaaS model: Software as a Service. They would host their software in the cloud where you could access it over the internet.
Now Software as a Service is the norm. In fact, it’s even had to find software that you can still load on your computers at work and at home.
Web Based CRM
While there are still a few CRM (Customer Relationship Management) Software companies where you can buy physical media and load the software on to your computer yourself, Web based CRM systems are the only way to go. You won’t have to worry about updates, security, and backups.
With web based CRM software, the updates come to you automatically. As the web based CRM application company comes up with new features, upgrades and even bug fixes, they will “push” these updates to you without you having to lift a finger. This ensures that you have the latest and greatest version of their web based CRM software.
Another reason to choose a web based CRM software is security and data preservation. While people often question how safe their data is on the Internet, they rarely think of how safe their data is sitting on their computer in an office or in their den at home, or worse… on a laptop. It is much more likely that data will be stolen, or lost on your personal PC, then it will on the Internet, stored safely behind the same kind of security that banks and government institutions use.
