Off-line means no Internet connection. So, that would be times like when you are on a plane or in an area without Internet. If you need this, Act! is a great solution as you can have an off-line syncing remote database. Ok, that was a lot of words – break it down for me. Off-line: so you can get into the database without Internet because there is a copy of the database on your computer. Syncing: that means this copy of the database would sync with the main database to give/receive any changes made. Remote: ok, so that’s kinda obvious right?
