1. Technical Requirements

(1) staffITpro WEB is a 3-tier application. Access to the database and documents is established via Internet and it follows the principles of traditional Web applications.

The staffITpro WEB browser can easily and quickly be downloaded from the staffITpro website and installed within minutes.

(2) staffITpro is based on Internet standards. This guarantees safety and reliability when working with staffITpro WEB. staffITpro WEB uses the HTTP protocol on port 80 or HTTPS on port 443 for data transmission.

This prevents staffITpro clients – without an existing identification – to connect to an existing connection.
