HAL Systems Traxx Inventory and HAL Traxx Assets are modern-browser-based solutions that operate over the internet. The core software is run on a server and is accessed using the internet browser on the device, eliminating the need to install software on the device. HAL Systems solutions can use any device with an internet browser, including tablets and smartphones. Critical data is only on the server – which can be backed-up – not the device.
Client – Server
With a legacy client/server architecture, a network connection is required between the server and the devices (clients). Software must be installed on both the server and the device, limiting device options to those that the software provider has written software specifically for. As device operating systems are updated and older versions are no longer available on new devices, availability of replacement devices can be limited unless the user executes a system upgrade, which can be costly and involve business disruption.
