Worldox Web mobile is an add-on that functions somewhere between the full Worldox on premise client and the fully mobile Worldox Cloud. Web Mobile can be added to your existing Worldox desktop installation with some additional customization and setup. Additionally, it can be configured for just those people that require or want more mobility, which can help keep costs down.
Since Worldox Web Mobile is not the full Worldox program, but rather a browser variant, some of the features and functions may be different. Most of the differences are just small limitations to advanced features, and a few require a slightly different operation to accomplish the same task. If a user does not know these things in advance then they can be problematic. However, just like anything else, users will quickly realize these differences are non-issues with proper training and knowledge.
Just like checking your email, you would browse and then login to the website. Once logged in you would see many familiar icons and buttons. Once logged in, you can use the core features of the program to find your documents. Below I have included many of the features on a table and their various differences. As you read, remember that this Web Mobile is designed to be used as an extension of the Worldox Desktop client.
