Smart Client Applications (Aka Web Client Applications)
With a SQL Server back-end and Microsoft .Net front-end user interface, the Microsoft Smart Client system enjoys the same high level of application security, reliability, data integrity and scale advantages of the Client-Server method, is fully Internet-enabled like a Browser-based application, and supports the full rich user interface of MS Windows applications.
PCApps frequently recommends web clients to our customers, primarily because this approach offers the best advantages available to both I/T and end users, and Smart Client applications are frequently less expensive to develop than MS Access-based applications (and are much less costly than Browser-based applications).

Web Client Applications: A Merger Of The Desktop And Internet
Smart Client applications look and perform just like Microsoft Office / Desktop applications — but they are deployed, automatically maintained, and enable real-time SQL Server Database sharing directly over a secure Internet. A true merger of the desktop and the internet, web client applications are viewed by many to represent the next major wave in computing platforms.
