Do you host your own web server inside your office? Probably not.
Our customers’ web sites are often hosted on servers hundreds or thousands of miles away–not running inside their office.
If the only purpose for your web site is to EXHALE, i.e., advertise products and list your store locations, then there’s no problem.
But what if you want to collect data from your visitors (and that’s always a good idea)? How does that data get from the web server running thousands of miles away, to you in your office?
Many web developers send the data to you in an email. But then you’re forced to copy/paste the data from the email and manually rekey it into your systems inside your office.
We can make this process more fun and easy:
- First, we can write an interface where users just drag the emails from Outlook and drop them onto our software. The software reads the emails, then pushes the meaningful data into your internal database.
- Or, even better– we can install a little engine out on the web server that will let you download the data directly –without using email at all.
If the prospect of having to re-key data from your web site into your internal system makes your skin crawl, give us a call!
