Everyone hates to deal with piles of paper unless they don't have any other alternatives. The benefit of web based solution is that they not only modernizes established business practices, but also makes services and information available from any web-facilitated PC.

Highly deployable

They are also perfect where bandwidth is restricted and the system and data is remote to the user. As they are most deployable you simply need to send the user a website address to log into and provide them with internet access facility.

Security of live data
Normally in more complex systems data is moved about separate systems and data sources. In web based systems these systems and processes can often be merged by reducing the need to move the data around. Web based applications also provide an additional security by removing the need for the user to have access to the data and back end servers.
