Ease of Use
OBL users do not need to know the computing so much or be a programmer in order to use OBL. Also, the OBL software is nothing to install. There are no complex commands to learn and no technical information to know.
As soon as OBL is ready, both administrators and clients are ready to manage the system. OBL provides great flexibility to the user, enabling him/her to remotely access and administer servers at anytime. The default settings provided for opening accounts and domains can be changed with the click of a button.
OBL uses extensive security measures to assure your organization of the highest possible integrity and protection. It should be noted however that this is limited to OBL System and the software it installs. The security of the operating system is considered the responsibility of the system administrator and is not part of the OBL System. Further, it deals nothing with the computer which you use.
OBL uses the secure HTTP (or HTTPS) protocol. All data and communications between users and the system are fully encrypted and secure.
OBL can provides a self-signed secure socket layer (SSL) certificate that enables secure transactions between a remote user and OBL. However, this certificate is not from an "official" authority and will not be recognized by the web browser as being valid for the login URL, which results in warning messages. If you wish to use an authentic SSL certificate you can. Certificates can be purchased directly through the OBL administration or by contacting a certificate-signing authority directly.
When registering a client, you are upload a picture for his/her profile. It is possible to view or update that picture above from members panel.
There is a possibility of entering different details for A client (which is added into system ) to ensure that member came from an agent or existing customer.
OBL provides additional security measures, allowing the administrator to restrict system access to specific user at any time.
