While the company maintains its focus on Windows, it wanted to extend their reach to other operating systems and provide customers with flexible deployment options.
"The webserver version complements the PC version but employs a server-based architecture," said Bill Seddon, Managing Director of Lyquidity. "Most Excel users are Windows based so the ComplyXL webserver version supports Microsoft servers by design. We chose the .NET framework and the C# language as our tools to implement ComplyXL because we are able to develop both the client and server solutions using one environment. However, in addition we have generated a version of ComplyXL that supports any server able to run Java and Tomcat, which is just about any server."
Any user in a department hosting ComplyXL web server version can record a version within a workbook so that future changes can be identified at any time and by any other user, just by accessing a local web page.
The new webserver version and the existing stand alone version of ComplyXL is available for a test drive on Lyquidity's website.
