Overview

The evolution of the internet, according to Wikipedia, has occurred in distinct phases, each with increased capacity and capability, which now allows fully fledged applications to exploit its power. By being everywhere, the internet allows clients and servers located anywhere to interact, without constraint, offering many business and technical advantages.

FlitePlan is a suite of rich internet applications having the features and functionality of traditional desktop and client-server programs. The software directly reflects business organizations, processes and resources, so is easily understood by business people. Organizations model how groups, companies, branches, divisions and even individuals are organized; purchase, service, manufacturing, finance, sales and other business processes describe how work is done among organizations; resources are the products, assets, money et cetera used and produced by these processes.

Cloud Computing

Advanced business reporting enables management, financial and operational information to be accurately and efficiently summarised in formats familiar to users. For example, income statement, balance sheet, accounts receivable and payable, inventory and work in process and other financial reports are exactly as they would be from traditional accounting system. However, FlitePlan not only stores financial data but also sales quantities, inventory balances, shipping tonnages, employment hours, et cetera. The integrated charting tool presents data in most popular graphical styles.

Hosted on the internet, FlitePlan applications are truly global, and can help integrate the activities of customers, suppliers, employees and other partners wherever they are. No special action is required for a supplier in Singapore to deal with a customer in Seattle and with a banker in London. These advantages are available to most organizations with no additional investment ? almost every company and many individuals have access to the internet ? and most use some form of corporate database. You probably already have the hardware and software required to run your FlitePlan applications. However you may choose to host the applications using a service provider offering 24x7 secure computing over the internet. Such services are offered at little or no cost by internet savvy companies such as Amazon, Google and IBM, enabling your company to entirely eliminate the cost and risk of its database, operating system, network, antivirus and other software, thus rendering your server rooms, power supplies, computers, backup libraries and support staff unnecessary.

Before you spend another cent, penny or yen on your information systems we suggest you evaluate the exciting opportunities offered by FlitePlan.
