Recognizing the power and flexibility of a comprehensive software-as-a-service (SaaS) model, AFS Technologies developed a web-based version of EasyOperator using Microsoft .Net technology for stability, functionality and dependability. The addition of a cloud-based version of the industry’s leading objectives-based planning tool allows customers to access sales information from any device anywhere with Internet access.
