How it works?
Octa GST is installed on the computer of Octa GST user(s). User(s) can create the business files which are saved on their respective computers. Users can work offline without needing any access to internet or office network. Since the data is saved on the users’ own computer, different users cannot access the same data at the same time. This installation is depicted in the diagram below:
