Hito Edge is a multi-tiered client-server business application comprising of:

  • A Java middleware layer (Spring Framework + OpenJPA + MyBATIS)
  • HTML + Javascript web browser-based user interface (Vaadin + Google Web Toolkit (GWT)

For your customers

You can access and manage your account online using the eCustomer portal. The portal is a vanilla Spring MVC cross-browser web application that provides cross-browser compatibility.

Hito Edge can also be accessed through Hito’s mobile app to interact with field agents. Field agents can securely access their automatically-scheduled work and communicate with the office.

The standard database back-end is PostgreSQL. Oracle® is recommended for larger-scale deployments. The system is designed to be compatible with enterprise database products from most database vendors. Typical system deployment is on Linux servers, in a Java environment.
