Cloud or Local Install

eTrack can be used in the cloud or installed locally for use with PCs or Machintosh computers.

Cloud Solution

  • Easy one click access from PC/Mac anywhere, anytime (you don’t even need a browser).
  • Simultaneous access by all staff.
  • Local print and export.
  • Secure access for every individual (program terminateds if disconnect)
  • Zero unscheduled downtime since introduced (Dec 2011)
  • Daily backups via Dropbox or alternative if required

PC/Windows Local Install

  • Simple (non technical) install from eTrack web site
  • Simultaneous access by all staff.
  • Easy upgrade of version and Licences with no client rollout required.
  • Includes Maintenance Console for one-click backups, restores, upgrades, licence updates, health checks and maintenance, database setup and file setup.
  • Optionally install a ‘private cloud’ module to also allow access from outside the office from any computer anywhere via a browser.  Any other application may also use this module.
  • Runs on Windows XP, Vista, 7, 8, Windows server 2000 and above.
  • Microsoft SQL Server Express database 2008R2 installed that has no Microsoft licence cost.  For larger companies (eg. if over 100 staff) you can also use a full Microsoft SQL server database 2000 and above (please discuss with eTrack before installing).
  • Other than SQL database, eTrack has no DLLs or Registry settings.  There is no client install except for a shortcut to a single executable.

Macintosh Local Install

If you use Macintosh computers and prefer not to use the Cloud solution, eTrack needs to be installed on a server with an enabler (eg Parallels or VW Ware) and Windows installed.  This can be a Windows computer, a Macintosh computer with Intel chip or a dedicated MiniMac that eTrack can help configure.

eTrack is a Windows product but fully Macintosh based or hybrid PC/Mac companies use eTrack.

  • Simple (non technical) install from eTrack web site, including a remote access module to enable access via a browser.
  • Access may also be from outside the office from any computer, anywhere.
  • Easy upgrade of version and Licences with no client rollout required.
  • Includes Maintenance Console for one-click backups, restores, upgrades, licence updates, health checks and maintenance, database setup and file setup.
  • Uses Microsoft SQL Server Express database 2008R2 that has no Microsoft licence cost.

Capacity Planning

  • The database size for a typical company with 50 staff is about 100Mbytes a year.  If using eTrack documents templates then allow 1Gbyte per year.
