A web application is a website that acts like a piece of software that users can access and interact with via the internet. Of course we interact with almost all websites but by definition an application has a more specific function, usually providing users with the ability to store and manipulate information. The most common web application on the net today is Facebook as well as Twitter and Linked-in.
Web applications or webapps are extremely popular these days as they are much easier to deploy than traditional software, as your users only need a web address and an internet browser. Maintaining and upgrading your application is also faster and less intrusive on the user (sometimes they are completely unaware of any updates, which is great!). Because web apps are built using modern tools of the internet they can also be developed much faster and more efficiently than traditional software, with user interfaces and workflows designed specifically for the tasks at hand.
So how can a web app help your business? Here are some examples:
These are just some of the possibilities, the great thing being that a web app can be built to do anything you want it to, just the way you need it to!
Aab Web started out just building websites for clients, but we quickly descovered that all that time we put in to understanding how people use the web could be even more usefull designing websites that allowed users to complete specific tasks online. So although we still build great websites, we spent an increasing amout of our time developing applications that help our clients businesses become more efficient and dynamic. We've developed several web applications for organisations such as the NHS, MPC, Permira and Whirlpool and are working on some exciting new ones for clients at the moment.
