What do you need to run our apps? As of 2017, we are hosting our own solutions for our clients and all of our clients are accessed our apps in their web browsers. So all you need is
A reasonably up-to-date operating system that supports a modern web browser. That means Windows 10 (maybe Windows 7 or 8), or one of the recent MacOS releases.
Hardware (a desktop computer, laptop, smart phone or tablet) to run the operating system and the application.
As a very rough rule-of-thumb, hardware purchased within the last five years has a good chance of being compatible with current-release software. But check. Contact us if you have questions.
