BigAnt requires a main server installation to which the other computers will be connected (through LAN of course). The server has all the centralized authorities of the clients and administers all the technical configurations.
The clients on the other hand will install the client application which provides a modern messenger interface. The whole setup allows the users (with the app installed) to interact with all those who are connected to the server.
The administrator on the server has full control over any server activities including reviewing of chat logs, searching for messages or attachments, sending out bulletin message, manage various access permissions of documents (shared) and more.
BigAnt also provides remote sharing (desktop) with remote assistance, message encrypt ability, customizing user profiles and logos, etc.
