  • On our web-site
    you can create your own virtual servers with just one click,
    and they are instantly on-line.
    This is how a virtual server is represented in your browser.
    You can quickly create accounts for your employees, customers or partners
    and you also have built-in tools for auditing and backup.
  • By clicking on the engine icon
    you can open the modeling environment
    and define the information to be managed on the server
    by drawing just business concepts like “equipment”, or “sparePart”
    on a single, very intuitive diagram.
  • When you start the server the first time
    both the database and the application are generated on the fly
    using open-source technologies
    and they are transparently installed on our servers
    so that they are immediately available on the web.
