Yes. There are 2 ways to connect to ArgoApps: web-based (when visiting in your web browser) known as ArgoApps Lite and client-based using the Citrix Workspace App app to access ArgoApps. These 2 methods may not be launched simultaneously. Some users may prefer the convenience of using their web browser while other users appreciate the additional functionality of client-based application.

You may launch the IBM SPSS app and the Word app from ArgoApps at the same time by launching ArgoApps in the web browser or using Citrix Workspace App. While both apps are launched you may copy/paste from one program to the other.
