The Astrow evoluton

Astrow Web

AstrowWEB is the web-based version of Astrow. It gets installed on a local server within the customer’s network. Despite the increased popularity of Cloud solutions, AstrowWEB is still requested by bigger companies who want to tightly integrate with 3rd party solutions.

Astrow Cloud

As its name suggests, AstrowCLOUD is the cloud-based version of Astrow; and is offered as a SaaS-solution. Although the functionalities are exactly the same, AstrowCLOUD offers some important advantages compared to the WEB version:

Premium data Premium data quality and accessibility
To guarantee the quality and accessibility of your data, Amano works together with a professional hosting company. Regular server maintenances and high security measures guarantee continuous data speed, quality and accessibility.
Updates Automatic updates free of charge
Thanks to the SaaS-contract, AstrowCLOUD customers benefit from regular system updates which are automatically installed.
Costs Reduced startup costs
Since you don’t need to own a server, startup costs can be significantly reduced.
Unrivaled support Unrivaled support
Thanks to the Cloud, we have direct access to your Astrow configuration. This allows us to remotely intervene whenever you’re facing problems or having questions.

Astrow Mobile

With the world getting ever more mobile, the need for mobile time and attendance management solutions arises. Amano answers this trend by offering its solutions also on mobile devices. As we always put the employee first, the mobile application focusses on the tasks for the employee, although managers will benefit from it as well. Offering Astrow Mobile as a standard for all employees, we strive for maximal employee engagement.
