Sorry yes I should have mentioned the clients will be on multiple 
platforms. Web based is simply the easiest to implment rather than 
trying to make sure each client has it's own piece of X talking software 
  configured to run properly. Not to mention should they add a new 
client machine it will make it a lot easier as well. Something that's 
simple and runs inside virtually any browser will do the trick quite 
nicely. The systems does not need to be all singing and dancing.
