Can Catalyst be installed for use at multiple physical locations?

Since Catalyst uses Microsoft Access as it's host application, the standard configuration consists of the front-end database residing on a client machine and the back-end database residing on a server machine within a local area network. However, with proper consideration given to bandwidth and security, it is possible to place the back-end database on a remote server to be shared by multiple physical locations. In this configuration, it is highly recommended that you use a SQL Server back-end database instead of an Access back-end database to avoid the risk of database corruption.

Catalyst was designed for use by a single company so if sister companies need to share the same back-end database, there would also need to be consideration given to the setup and use of data.
