Awhile ago I participated in an Internet-based presentation of the Browser
product and had a more recent experience with an on-site demo.  The
application allows inquiry to all installed MAPICS modules with a much more
up-to-date look than the previous Visual WorkPlace screen-overlays.  Note
the term 'inquiry'... transaction-entry and/or file maintenance are not
allowed via the Browser interface unless the additional client-server 'Plus'
modules are purchased.  From my experience with the demo, a good deal of
user-customization can be accomplished via the card-group management
features.  Also, direct export of MAPICS data to the clipboard for use in
spreadsheets and/or documents can be very useful to end-users (and take alot
of time-consuming requests for programming staff).

Final comments... could be very good if users are pc-literate and regularly
make the best use of the drill-down capabilities of MAPICS displays -or-
regularly navigate through several modules;  downside... additional
investment for transaction/file maintenance capabilities.
