We have a requirement from management to give limited access of our Application to Distributors \ Dealers to look at their account statements in our books of account and enter their purchase requirements (sales order for us).
We have given a few of them RDC which connects to our terminal server and access the reports. This involves licensing of TS Client per each distributor. Is it better, secure and less costly if a web based application is made to only enter the orders and retrieve reports like pending orders, ledgers, receivables etc. Also which is more secure as far as database access is concerned…browser based access or RDC access.
