(OBAs) built on the Microsoft Office Business Application framework, are a great way to extend your Line of Business (LOB) applications so you can capture critical information that lives in spreadsheets and work offline without missing a beat.
Would you like to…
Use Excel with Prolog and other AEC Industry applications?
Utilize standard forms everyone already understands?
Update information in minutes vs. hours?
Work online or offline from anywhere anytime?
Stop mapping fields and supporting import/export issues?
A common example of using OBAs in the AEC Industry is with Prolog (a construction project management application). Users can work in Microsoft Excel to manage information related to submittals, punch list, and most other feature. Using an OBA based on Excel, you can use our standard forms or base them on yours. While OBAs work great with Prolog, OBAs can be used with any application that has web services.
