We provide two widely used and time tested options to allow users to access Advisor’s data from wherever they are: Terminal Services and a more flexible technology we call “replication”.
Using Terminal Services (or Citrix), you can leverage your existing technology by using older PCs to run Advisor. You can also allow users in the building next door or across the state to have real-time access to Advisor just like users at your main site.
Example: On the Mark Services, Inc. uses Terminal Services to allow employees to work in Advisor from home using a standard dial-up or high-speed internet connection.
Using our available replication technology, physically distant locations can share a common Advisor database without the need for expensive high-speed data connections. Each location’s database is kept synchronized on a routine basis…from once an hour to once a day.
Example: REM/Ohio Mentor, Inc. uses this technology to keep their Akron and Columbus offices synchronized every night.
Using the same replication technology, users with laptops can run Advisor while they are away from the office. When they return to the office and log into the network, any work they did is automatically applied to the main database. Simultaneously, any work done on the main database is automatically applied to their laptop.
Example: ADD, Inc. uses this technology to allow their employees to access Advisor from anywhere at any time with 13 remote laptops.
