What is UniApps?

UniApps enables application delivery to any device in any location. It is a platform that Universities use to provide students and staff with on-demand access to a wide range of software applications.

CloudPaged deliveries, provided through Uniapps, streams applications to end-users, optimizing performance and resource utilisation. It enables seamless application delivery by providing only the necessary components to the user's device, reducing the need for local installation and improving efficiency.

In cases where it is not possible to deliver the program via Cloudpaging, UniApps provides alternative launch options or a link to the developers' website for further information.
