Frequently Asked Questions

Frequently asked questions

What can Arahant do for us?


Arahant is a good answer for many small and mid-size companies (e.g. in the $5 million-$50 million revenue range or non-profit organizations) that need to make a change to enhance their business processes with a web-based product that will serve them well for years to come. These businesses typically need specific help with Human Resources, Worker Time Tracking, Project Management, Invoicing, and other functions offered by the Arahant system.




What are the steps for us to get started with Arahant?


After we show you a demo and you take a thorough look at the software (we’ll give you unlimited, free access online), you sign a license agreement that sets out your responsibilities and ours while you use the software. After that, we can host it in the cloud for you or install it in-house.




Can we actually use Arahant software “out-of-the-box?”


Yes. Of course there is an implementation process that includes things like configuring the system and importing your data. Once setup, however, the system is fully functional.




What about integrating with our accounting system?


Arahant integrates with many desktop and cloud-based accounting systems. Additional integrations may be built.




Can you integrate with our existing software?


One of our specialties is integrating with other systems that you may already own. If your other system has a means for us to integrate with it, we can do the job.




Can the system be enhanced or customized to fit our specific requirements?


This is what we specialize in! Although our system comes highly functional as-is, we are always ready to modify it in order to meet your specific needs.




With all of the business systems out there, why choose Arahant?


We've found that most entities use either: 1. Spreadsheets
2. Off-the-shelf software
3. Custom, built in-house software These solutions each have particular problems, including maintenance and reliability issues, significant limitations and lack of flexibility, or extreme cost and risk. While some software companies or third parties will customize their software to a minimal extent, Arahant contains the majority of what a business needs ready to go. And the Arahant company specializes in customizing the Arahant system to meet your exact needs.




Where is Arahant hosted?


The Arahant system can be hosted in the cloud, or you can host it in your own data center. We can do all of the setup and configuration for you.




What technology is Arahant based on?


On the front-end, Arahant consists of industry-standard HTML, CSS, and JavaScript and functions on all modern browsers. On the back-end, Arahant is built on Java and SQL. Communications between the front-end and back-end are via web services. Since the back-end is built on microservices, much functionality can be changed without necessitating a re-deploy and disrupting your operation.
