Desktop applications

The use of software in business is a necessity. Digitalization allows the introduction of new tools, expands business opportunities, improves interaction between the company and the client. But the question arises, what type of applications to use: browser or desktop application? What is the difference? What are the advantages of developing a desktop application, what opportunities does it provide? Let’s figure it out.

What is a desktop application?

Desktop applications are programs that require the desktop OS to run. They are installed into the system through a special installer, they use computer resources for work. 

The main feature of such programs is the ability to work offline, without an Internet connection. Modern applications still offer to work with the connection, but this is necessary in order to use various devices, include other users in the project, or update the program without manually reinstalling.

Many companies are concerned about security, so they don’t want apps to connect to the internet. In this case, the development of desktop applications can be done on a turnkey basis, and the connection is possible in a closed local network.

It is believed that this type of program is faster, and the functionality is much wider. This is true, but it is worth noting that these parameters depend mainly on the characteristics of the computer. Try to put your software on weak hardware and quickly see for yourself. But developing desktop applications does have its benefits.


By ordering personal development, you get unique business features that will help your company. The main feature is ample opportunities for functionality. You can implement almost any idea. At the same time, the interface will be convenient, familiar and intuitive for users. 

Safety and reliability

Browser applications are vulnerable. The fact is that developers cannot influence the security of the browser, and the web application directly depends on its operation. Desktop application is a guarantee of data security and safety. Therefore, many companies choose such a digital solution for their enterprise.


Desktop applications can be developed for various operating systems and even used from a mobile device by making a native version. But you need to be connected to the internet to sync your data. However, mobility implies the use of the application in any conditions and makes it possible to manage the company’s business processes at any time.


The principle of operation of the Desktop application is simple: the program uses the resources of the computer, its memory and capabilities. On the one hand, this can become a disadvantage if the equipment is not good enough. But on the other hand, when ordering an individual development, the features of the system are taken into account. With proper optimization, such an application will “fly” and perform tasks efficiently.

Development of desktop applications for business opens up new horizons. The introduction of digital products in the company allows you to increase efficiency, automate many of the company’s processes and optimize work. All this happens thanks to the opportunities that the digital product provides. Desktop apps have a range of options:

  • Work without the Internet. The application can work offline, saves all data in the computer’s memory. This guarantees data security and high performance.
  • Internet work. Connecting such a program to the Internet opens up new possibilities. Using the cloud to save data, accessing multiple users to the same project, offline software updates without reinstallation or lengthy settings. If necessary, you can work in the local network.
  • Quick start. The desktop application launches system files from the computer’s memory and does not need to constantly update data and download settings from the network. Therefore, when using normal hardware, even powerful applications run quickly.
  • Quality user interface. Not everyone needs the ability to customize the interface for themselves, but PC programs usually allow you to do this. 
  • Use of additional peripherals. Desktop applications have access to all devices that connect to the computer. Therefore, they can be easily integrated with printers, scanners, fiscal devices and other peripheral devices.

This is not all the features of the programs that are installed on the computer. Individual development allows you to get an effective business application that meets specific needs. How it works?
