The following diagram shows how ReportPlus connects to data sources, and how it supports multiple repositories to store the dashboards.
The iOS, Android and Desktop platforms access the data directly from the data sources. This is because your connection is either one of these:
An internal local area network.
A VPN connection.
Cloud-service services accessible through the internet.
