School Management Software System Requirements

Last Updated: 2/14/2012

These minimum specifications are meant to be a guideline. Each school’s needs are different. For more specific recommendations tailored to your installation needs, please contact your salesperson or the Product Support department.
Due to licensing concerns, servers are to be dedicated machines (no Active Directory, Exchange, SQL Server or other applications installed). It is recommended that all servers have a DVD drive installed.
Please note that these requirements apply only to schools who intend to purchase and host the software on campus. The Senior Hosted Solution™, our SaaS (Software as a Service) offering eliminates the need to invest in hardware and software infrastructure, providing access anywhere, anytime, from a standard web browser.
