Local/Install-Based vs. Cloud-Based

The AGS application is a Cloud-based application, and not an Install-based solution.

An Install-based solution involves the vendor installing its platform within a customer infrastructure (e.g., an Enterprise customer’s infrastructure) which involves detailed blueprints of the platform being installed (Solution Capabilities Document, Solution Architecture Definition (SAD) Documentation, Minimum Hardware/Software Requirements Documentation, Install Base Implementation Document, etc.).

As a Cloud-based online software application, we do not require any special software, hardware, infrastructure, servers, architectural configuration, or development from our customers.

Customers and users just need an internet connection and a web browser (E.g., Chrome, Edge, mobile, Firefox, etc.) to start using the AGS application.
