I have described the difference between online and offline mode in Resco Mobile CRM client for Microsoft Dynamics CRM in my previous blog post.
As written in there, online mode resembles the work of a web browser, it’s getting data directly from server. Which makes data operations slow, costly and potentially risky.
Offline mode, on the other side, works with data stored in the local database. Hence the data loading/storing is fast and presents no problem at all.
So far, so good.
Online mode looks like a looser.
