And it’s available, whenever you need it.

APN Online has been available more than 99.7% of the time for the past ten years. * That’s because we rely on redundant AWS (Amazon Web Services) servers and a self-correcting error detection program. So even if one server becomes impacted or unavailable, your service will probably not be affected. This means that you can access your data online no matter where you are or what you are doing.

You get to make the rules.

You control who accesses your data, and what they can see and do with it. Each person you invite to use APN Online must create a unique password, and we offer multiple permission levels that let you limit the access privileges of each user. This means that your part-time contractor can enter his hours, but not access information you might not want him to see, like your latest Profit & Sales reports. And if that’s not enough, you can also download a local copy of your data to your hard drive for an extra layer of comfort and control.

Everyone is held accountable.

APN Online offers unique Always-On Activity Log and Real Time Access features, which cannot be turned off by a user. They record every login to the service and any changes made to every user activity. The Always-On Activity Log is a complete record of activities, while the record is an easy-to-read history of all changes to a specific transaction and activity. So, nothing can happen to your records without you or your employees knowing about it. And you’ll always have a paper trail to trace all transactions back to their source.

* Service availability subject to occasional downtimes for systems or service maintenance. Terms, conditions, pricing, features, and service options subject to change without notice.
