Leverage the Web

A web application is an application that works within a web browser such as Chrome, Firefox, Safari or Internet Explorer. Many businesses leverage the power of web applications to power the internal functions of their business or to provide a service to their market.

Web applications can be versatile, functional and most importantly automate your business processes and improve efficiency.

How Web Applications Work


A combination of server-side scripts (PHP and ASP) enables web applications to handle storing and retrieving information. Client-side scripts (JavaScript and HTML) then present users with the information.

Once enabled users can interact with the company through things like online forms, content management systems, and shopping carts. Additionally, these applications allow the business’ employees create documents, share information, and collaborate on projects or documents regardless of their location or the device they’re using.


Browser-supported languages including JavaScript and HTML are used for coding web applications. This is because these languages rely on the browser to execute the program. Some of these are dynamic  applications that require server-side processing while others are static and don’t require any processing from the server.

The web application has a few requirements including:

  • A web server to manage the client’s requests
  • An application server to perform the tasks
  • A database for storing the information

Working with PWS was an amazing experience. The regular communication ensured that the result we got was everything we were after.

A Typical Web Application Workflow:

1. A user goes online using their browser or the application’s user interface and makes a request of the web server

2. The web server forwards this request to the web application server

3. The web server performs the requested task

4. The web server generates the results and provides you with the requested data

5. The web server sends these results to you and it appears on your screen

Types of Web Applications

There are many types of web applications including:

  • Online forms

Benefits of Web Applications

  • Regardless of what OS or device you use, there are many benefits to using web applications, including:
  • Everyone accesses the same version so there aren’t any compatibility issues
  • Since they’re not installed on your hard drive you won’t have any space limitations
  • Software piracy in subscription-based web applications (i.e. SaaS) is reduced
  • Both the business and the end user pay less
