Expected for some times now, the new version of PlanningPME Web Access will be available on Monday, the 30th of August.
From the new features, this version 2.0 now have a cache server.
What is a cache Server?*
"A cache server is a dedicated network server or service acting as a server that saves Web pages or other Internet content locally. By placing previously requested information in temporary storage, or cache, a cache server both speeds up access to data and reduces demand on an enterprise's bandwidth. Cache servers also allow users to access content offline, including rich media files or other documents. A cache server is sometimes called a "cache engine."
So, the load speed should be much faster and the information on the schedule will be updated automatically on real time without any action requested from your side.
