For many enterprises, terminal emulation is the window to mission critical applications. However, the cost of managing the individually installed desktop-based software is often prohibitive and prevents companies from introducing updates and features to users. OnWeb Web-to-Host offers the same features and user experiences of desktop-based terminal emulation without the necessity of individual installations. OnWeb Web-to-Host enables business users to work more efficiently with host-based information from a familiar Web browser. It provides all the core functionality of a Windows-based emulator - from multi-session support and host printer emulation to a variety of file transfer and host-based graphics options - without a large desktop footprint.
Through a single browser-based interface, OnWeb Web-to-Host delivers a persistent secured connection to mission critical applications and data residing on virtually any host. OnWeb Web-to-Host is easy to deploy and administer in heterogeneous enterprise environments. Additionally, the component-based architecture enables optimal performance and fast, flexible custom application development.
Retail Point of Sale (POS) operations
In the days of big bulky POS terminals, standard desktop emulators were acceptable. Now, retail Point of Sale terminals are becoming more like network devices. Organizations leverage the thin and lightweight design of OnWeb Web-to-Host to continue to access their retail applications while slimming down the POS terminal.
Offshore and remote employee access to core applications
Hundreds of companies have taken advantage of remote employees for either at-home telecommuting or for offshore cost savings. OnWeb enables these employees to have the same user experience they would have at the office while using only the desktop's browser.
Desktop emulation replacement
While the benefits of a desktop based emulator are evident, for some users and environments, deployment and usage is best within the browser. OnWeb is the only platform of its kind that combines the features and security of a desktop based emulator with the ease of deployment of Web based technologies.
Single view portals are becoming more popular. What happens when a single view infrastructure meets an end user that only knows emulation applications? The answer? OnWeb Web-to-Host. Organizations are able to deploy single view portal infrastructures with embedded emulation with OnWeb Web-to-Host.
