A web portal provides
the user with fast, secure access to business critical information.
Access limited to a business' direct workforce is termed an
"Intranet Solution". If a business intranet is expanded
to include third-party organisations (partners, agents) it
is referred to as an "Extranet Solution".
For a business, a web portal provides greater control over
deployment of information to a workforce. With centralised
information, maintenance is reduced and updates can be readily
deployed through your business enterprise.
Instant availability to critical information
Collaboration of business critical information
Links to external information repositories
Consistently up-to-date business information
Visibility and control over all users
Web Portal - Application Repository:
User applications can
also be run through a web portal. Those traditionally run
in a windows environment on a PC can be moved centrally. Thus
creating an application repository.
To the user, applications that once worked in isolation,
now interact seamlessly with other applications, sharing information.
To the administrator, any software updates can be done once
and the common problem of corrupted PC environments is diminished.
Improved integration between applications
Standardise application usage across the enterprise
High reduction in IT support and maintenance
Reduced spend on PC hardware
Web Portal - Optimisation:
Using YourAmigo™, all information
held in the enterprise, can be interrogated and indexed. This
unique, automatic cataloguing of information provides a sophisticated
search utility, where users can retrieve every piece of information
from a search request.
This is particularly useful for organisations with a high
volume of information that is changing rapidly. Because YourAmigo™
works in the background, all additions and changes to the
information repository are automatically logged, providing
users with a consistently updated index for their searches.
Automatic information cataloguing
Automatic tracking of changes
Comprehensive search routines to retrieve all relevant
