What is involved and how much
does it cost?
Browser – since this is a
web-based product, there are no requirements for local installation
of anything other than a web browser, and that should be Microsoft
IE 5.1 or higher. Other browsers are not supported.
Bluegrass Software – there
will be an additional module to install on your server that controls
the interface between the web-based SQL and your files.
Web Site – if you already
have a web server or service provider that will support multiple
addresses (URLs) you can make use of that resource. We can refer a
hosting site company, payable directly to
the hosting company. In any case, we will setup and test the site
for you. If you use your own resources, the site must offer and
support the following Microsoft products: SQL Server 2000 or higher,
the .Net Framework v1.1 and ASP. Net. In addition, they must allow
direct, open access to their email servers without requiring
Authentication. We strongly recommend you take advantage of our
hosting service – we’ve already worked-out the bugs with them.
Web Access – you will need
to have broadband web access (DSL, cable modem or bi-directional
satellite) to handle the data transfer requirements. A dial-up
connection will not provide the speed required. Your customers will
only need a dial-up connection.
This includes reviewing your current database for potential
problems. Training will focus on Username/Password maintenance and
work order entry activities. It is expected that you will be able to
provide training to your customers very quickly.

paths priced according to on-going usage.
