So far due to security reasons ERP package and licencing methods allowed access to information only to certain users. With the most recent web technologies, approval of documents in workflow, planning of working time, monitoring of work progress or issue of any type of enquiries will be possible online from a web browser without a need to install and update business software on users’ computers which defines a new way of communication and business collaboration.”
