Curl Application Scenarios

Occasionally Connected Computing

Customer Relationship Management (CRM) has become a key measure in heightening competitive corporate sales efficiency and productivity. Most CRM systems, however, require a user to be connected to the corporate intranet while entering, searching, or analyzing sales data. The value of CRM software is diminished when sales personnel cannot access it while traveling or during business talks in client offices.

The Occasionally Connected Computing (OCC) capability of the Curl platform enables you, even when offline, to increase your business productivity by accessing services and information equivalent to those available online.

Occasionally Connected Computing (OCC)

Occasionally Connected Computing allows access to locally stored files as if connected to the network, and normal use of Web business applications, even if the client PC is disconnected from the network in a remote environment.

OCC is also effective in reducing network traffic volume. Once a file is copied onto a client PC, it remains available for subsequent access.

OCC makes possible a scheme in which Web applications can be launched and past data can be retrieved from a local PC while the latest updated data is acquired via the server. It is a quick solution, especially for users who wish to strengthen or reorganize their networks.
