That’s an ordinary thing in programming. Introduction of new tech, new tools allows us to implement better new features and makes old concepts obsolete.
Same with WAYL — currently it’s fully functional with regular updates. But to use it you have to install it on your PC. In the beginning this looked like a decent option for most users working on Windows PC’s.
Now — not so much. What if the user’s PC is running on obsolete Windows XP — you can still find them in many offices? Maybe it’s running on Linux or macOS? What if user prefers to use a smartphone or tablet running on Android or iOS? Or he or she needs to use multiple devices during the day: Windows PC — in the office, tablet — when visiting other branches, smartphone — in the middle of a trip, MacBook — at home?
Our goal is making WAYL convenient for all users. That’s why we’re moving on to Web-version. This means you can
1.access WAYL through a browser from any device with Internet access
2.use WAYL on any OS
3.avoid the hassle of installation
Currently we’re testing the new Crew Web-module and are planning to add the rest until the end of 2020. The bright future of not being tied to your Windows PC is closer than you think.
