Bat file - what does a phrase after START mean

I have the below, but am wondering what purpose does the phrase "LMR" server after the START command?

@ECHO Starting LMR_FE...
@ECHO OFF

SET LOCAL_PATH="C:\Temp"
SET SERVER_PATH="\\sf1\user1\shared\DepositServices\CIA\SOS_APPLICATIONS\Database_FrontEnds"
SET APP_FILE_NAME="LMR_FE.mdb"

:buil_dpath
if not exist %LOCAL_PATH%\ (mkdir %LOCAL_PATH%)
goto copy_app_file

:copy_app_file
xcopy /y/c/q %SERVER_PATH%\%APP_FILE_NAME% %LOCAL_PATH%
goto copy_images

:copy_images
goto launchapp

:launchapp  
  BELOW-WHAT PURPOSED DOES "LMR" serve?
START "LMR" /B /REALTIME %LOCAL_PATH%\%APP_FILE_NAME%


:exit
EXIT

"LMR" is the title of the new window

In your case i do not understand why it is specified, as the "/B" option prevents the creation of a new window (with the new title).

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

So, do I really need to keep it?  someone else built this and I am trying to pare it down to what is really necessary.

Thank you all for the information.  I am getting rid of it as it does seem unnecessary.  Share points as all answers helped me understand what was going on.
