What is a 'cloud application' and how does it work?

You can access Chekya from any device using any major internet browser (Chrome, Edge, Firefox, Safari).

Global brands that use AWS include Netflix, NASA, Adobe, Airbnb and Samsung, to name a few. AWS operates an expanding network of 69 high-security data centres across the globe, including three located in Sydney, Australia. Sophisticated firewalls and encryption methods ensure your data remains safe and available at all times. Find out more about AWS cloud security via their website.

Can I access chekya offline?

Chekya is a software as a service (SaaS) platform where both the application and the underlying data are stored on remote servers. This means you’ll need an internet connection to access it. You can, however, download selected data into standard formats (for example, CSV spreadsheets) to use in other applications, such as Excel.
