Beacon™ Not Affected by End of Support for Silverlight in Chrome and OS X

by Stephanie on April 27, 2015

Some of our clients and end users are asking how the end of support for Silverlight (that was announced two years ago and taking affect this month) will affect their Beacon™ websites.  Beacon™ will not be affected at all. 

In evaluating development technologies, Schneider Geospatial avoided using Silverlight because it required the end user to download a plug in – creating an avoidable friction point.  Although many companies chose to develop using Silverlight since it was an easier path, the foresight of our Software Engineers allowed Schneider Geospatial to develop using modern, cross platform technologies that have provided a consistent and clean platform regardless of operating system. 

Our newest release of the Beacon™ Platform has continued down that path and now extends that clean and consistent user experience across all devices (screen sizes) as well as operating systems. 

We hope you continue to enjoy using Beacon™; and we thank you for your trust.
