Frequently Asked Questions

Do I have to download anything?

If you have a web browser, such as Firefox, Chrome, Opera, IE or Safari, you have everything you need. Qrimp is a true internet-browser based system, not a Virtual Terminal to a program on a server somewhere. This makes Qrimp-based software much faster than many of our competitors products!

Can I host my application behind my firewall?

Yes! The Qrimp Platform can be installed on your server behind your firewall for local use. This will ensure that your data is accessed only by those who have access to your servers. Contact us for more details.

Do I need any other programs?

No other programs are needed. All you need is your web browser. You can create and manage all of your database tables directly from the web.

Is my data secure?

Qrimp takes all precautions to ensure that your data will be accessed only by you and your authorized users. Qrimp applications can be set up with SSL 128-bit encryption, the same technology used by online retailers to protect credit card transactions and ensure safety during data transfer. Applications are hosted in a physically secure and redundant data center. Passwords are stored encrypted, and are not transmitted in plain text via email (we have a password reset mechanism). We also have a password security meter, that shows how secure a password is when a user is creating an account.

Is my data backed up?

Database backups of all Qrimp applications are made daily and stored in multiple, geographically distributed locations.

Can I export my data?

Yes! There are many ways to get your data out of your Qrimp app. You can export as excel, .csv or XML. You can also generate SQL scripts to rebuild your data in another database.

Can I work offline?

Yes! Qrimp's one-of-a-kind Synchronize feature allows you to work on a local copy of your application when you are not connected to the Internet. When you reconnect and hit synchronize, your application and all of the changes you made to your data are uploaded. Synchronizer requires Microsoft SQL Server 2005 Express and IIS6 (both are free) and a copy of our binaries. View the help topic for more information.

Can I build XYZ application with Qrimp?

You can build any type of software system from a blog to a financial system and anything in between. Qrimp has been used to build intranets, shopping sites, ISP management systems, photo-sharing websites, digital asset management, custom accounting apps, inventory management systems and more.

How much experience do I need?

If you can use advanced features in Excel, create a custom Wordpress site, or navigate Sharepoint, you can probably learn to run a database application on Qrimp. Skills in HTML, CSS, SQL and Javascript will be useful. And if you're building from scratch, we provide services to help you create your custom app.
