With this approach, logically connected streams of standardized code are incorporated into the system design, eliminating the need for a lot of customized programming for application function.

CreditSphere also requires no expensive upgrades to network design or expensive addition of banks of servers to expand or modify the system; nor does it require the piecing together of different vendor's plug-and-play systems to initiate an upgrade, X/Net points out.

Software upgrades can be delivered via "cartridges" over the Internet and quickly implemented.

As a result, CreditSphere is easier to implement, modify, manage, and expand; systems that used to take months to deploy can be operational in weeks.
