How does AgentSafe integrate with software?
AgentSafe is a cloudbase application that easily integrates with other applications or software with web access. All compliance reports can be saved into the hard disk drive on your computer, or uploaded to a cloud storage folder. It is worth noting that AgentSafe is a complementary product and not a replacement for other software, it's regarded as the missing piece.
What is the cloud?
In the simplest terms, cloud computing means storing and accessing data and programs over the internet instead of your computer's hard drive. The cloud is just a metaphor for the Internet.
How secure is the data?
Given the sensitive nature of the data, AgentSafe employs the following levels of security:
The application's web and database server is hosted on industry recognised Microsoft Azure's cloud technology.
Includes sql authentication and encryption. All read/write operations are performed via a middle application tier. Daily backups are stored in Microsoft Azure.
Role based authentication provides finely controlled access to areas within AgentSafe. Anti-forgery tokens are implemented to prevent malicious attempts to access data such as cross-site-scripting.
Full audit trail of database changes.
How many users can login to AgentSafe?
As many as you like.

There are some really good apps to fill pdf forms on Android and iPhone such as; PDF expert, PDF Max 5 Pro, Smart Forms, Adobe Fill & Sign and GoodNotes 4.
