Pampered Partner using port 80? Wait....Our friends over the pond are already doing that....Is it coming to us this 06' conference?

P.S. Google "port 80" and you might have a hint of what I am talking about! :eek:

Ooohh! That would make things SO much easier! I would definitely bring my laptop to shows then! So, where'd you get this inside scoop?

It's not clear exactly what you guys are talking about, but what I'd really like to see is integration between PP and individual websites. It's such a pain to enter all the contact info twice and keep it updated. Am I missing something or is that what you do, too? Also, we should have to enter show orders that are sent in online again in PP. That's my two cents worth!

It means Pampered Partener would be a web-based program. Port 80 is the common port all computers use to access the web. Making the program web-based would mean we could all access it from ANY computer!

Part of what I like...

Part of what I like about TPC is that our program is NOT web-based. We can't get high speed where we are at, and that would be a major pain! Plus, it seems like more of a security risk...at first glance anyway.

Just my opinion, but I hope if they do go to this, that they give us an option...

I am full of information and scoops.... TPC has never seemed to put all their eggs in one basket, so I wouldn't worry about a whole switch over at once. Nikked even if it took you an extra ten minutes for each show the benefits would out way the wait. Dail-up takes 15-30 minutes to get an update. If a full install is needed to fix a PamperedPartner a download takes 3-4 hours. That would not be an issue anymore. No more product list udpates and if your computer crashes you will not have to worry about losing your data. Most insecureity comes from what is on your PC in the first place. Spyware/Trojans on computers give hackers total access to your PC, SSL(The Security on the web) I would trust rather then the windows OS. I am sure TPC would optimize these sites for 56K not broadband.

Not to be argumentative...

Okay, so I know that changes happen, and I'll have to deal with it when and if it does, but...

Updates to PP are not a problem for me. When I update once a month, I do it right before I go to bed, and when I wake up in the morning, it's done. No muss, no fuss.

I back up regularly to a flash drive, so a crash isn't a problem. I utilize PP for my entire customer data base, and if I had to do that online, I wouldn't. In fact, I probably wouldn't have signed on as a consultant if that was the program...as stated before I LIKE PAMPERED PARTNER, precisely because it is not web-based.

I am pretty computer literate, so I understand most of the ins and outs...just don't think this other way is a better option.

Consultant's corner is a nightmare for me because of how long the pages take to load. The fastest speed I can get on my line is 28.8, and when I have to download flyers, it takes way to long, and I can only do one at a time...don't ask me to have to wait for pages to load so I can send in an order...YUCK!

There is no way you are going to convince me that this is "better" for everybody...it's different, and if you have high-speed access, great. But for me and my house, we like PP as is!

NikkeD..

For your sake, and other in your positions, I do hope they don't do away with the current program. Web based really would be painful with such a slow connection. I'll cross my fingers for you. ;)
