Introduction

Desktop Application runs natively on any computer system. These applications are efficient because of the fact that they do not require any browser to run upon, which further eliminates browser dependencies. Also, there are organizations that are very specific about the browser choice, and using a browser that is not fully compatible with the application can limit the application's usage. To help you avoid browser dependencies and make your employees comply with organizational policies, VIDIZMO offers a Desktop Client to its valuable customers.
