What is an application?
A user application is any application or any system (e.g. a complete warehouse management system) that provides functionality via a graphical user interface (GUI).
A service application runs in the background (i.e. without GUI) and provides a service that can be used by other applications or services via a standardized interface – the logistics mall BUS.
A logistics mall app is a “small” user application providing a defined functionality. Apps can be linked to form processes.
A mobile app is a logistics mall app that is operated on mobile end devices using the Android operating system.
Applications are offered on the Business AppStore by independent software vendors (ISV).
