Stable, secure server-based environment - generally speaking, servers are more reliable than PCs in several ways: first, the hardware is designed for continuous operation. Second, the servers are focused on their task only; there are no downloaded internet games, no file-sharing programs, no word processors and print drivers to configure and so forth. All of these added software components could potentially compromise system stability or security.
Lets face it, not everyone is an expert when it comes to computers. Using BPPS means you don't have to be a computer geek or hire a geek to keep the system operational.
We often get questions from pet sitters asking why we don't create a "boxed" version of the software so they can install it and run it on their own computer. The simple answer is that this application could not run properly on most home computers, as they do not have the internet bandwidth, hardware, or software it takes to support the application. Without the internet, this application is just a static record keeper, like Microsoft Excel. What record- keeping software is missing is the ability to share information across the internet, to share secure client information with the people that need access to it, and to produce email confirmation messages to clients all in one easy-to-use consolidated application.
