The client program is downloaded, installed and automatically updated in the workstation when one accesses the server. The user doesn't have to worry about the updates.

2 - This allows one to access the Web application of CIFKM with any Web-browser. It has been prepared for smartphones and tablets. This Web application allows one to search for "Smart Boxes" contents, consult their information, create folders, and upload and download files of any kind. Each user can act according to his permissions over each" Smart Box " as with the client program, but the functionalities here are more restricted.

The client program provides mobility to the user

The CIFKM client program connects to servers using Web services. Therefore, the user of client program can access the CIFKM server from both the local network or the Internet.. If there is a good conection, the user will hardly notice the difference. For him everything is transparent.

Internal users will commonly use the client program since it allows one to execute any functionality and faculty one has been assigned. The user, identifying himself with name and password, may access his CIFKM environment from any computer with the client program installed. Also, if he uses a local network he may be automatically identified through the domain or the LDAP of his company.
