Technical Specifications

The Companion2, Coach and Dispatcher Suites are solutions installed locally on one or several servers, whether physical or virtual, that are normally located inside your premises. This type of installation remains the most widely used data storage method in the market. It ensures tight control and increased security for all the data saved on your site, behind your firewall, while still allowing remote access to it, via a secure connection. Your mobile users can then spontaneously initiate secure bidirectional communications, conveyed through a wired, Wi-Fi or cellular network. The mobile applications developed by CIS Group have been specifically designed for local installation on the devices, so your users will never experience a loss of productivity due to a faulty or absent Internet connection during a visit to a customer. This diagram illustrates, as an example, a standard architecture:

Maybe you prefer not to maintain an IT infrastructure on your premises, favoring a solution with cloud-based access? We will then propose installing our applications on such a platform, like Microsoft Azure or others. This type of service, called cloud computing, provides application and data hosting, and of course data storage and synchronization.

CIS Group is intent on adapting to your technological needs while providing you with solutions that are rich in functionalities, that offer extraordinary flexibility, and are also connectable with a multitude of complementary applications. From this, it is important for us to give you the freedom of choice between cloud computing and the maintenance of a server infrastructure in your own installations.
