Not at all. In fact, one of the major advantages of online applications is that they work much like a Web site, with user-friendly interfaces and point-and-click maneuverability. Conventional software can be confusing and difficult for all employees to learn, so it generally requires a lengthier deployment time, extensive training, and ongoing troubleshooting. All this, of course, demands a higher cost, both in capital and in man hours. Cloud-based applications are also extremely customizable. Individual end-users can tweak their interfaces to their preferences, while professional developers are able to access a range of coding tools to customize the application itself.
