FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS:
A: Each station must have Windows® 7 or higher, video accelerator card, at least one sharable CD-ROM on the network and one laser- or ink-jet type printer, and depending upon operating system 256 MB (Win/XP) to 512 MB (Vista) to 1 GB (Win7/8/10) memory (minimum). For networking, a 100 Mbps (high speed) router or switch is recommended instead of using a hub. 1 Gbps (ultra speed) network cards, cables, and router would further improve performance, especially important with larger databases and networks. Server requirements are similar. Windows Vista/7/8/10 have their own requirements, which can be found on the Microsoft® web site or through your computer retailer. Mac® users must currently install Parallels® or run BootCamp® to run Summit within Windows. (Stay tuned for an improved approach for Mac® users!) Summit ships with a run-time version of Microsoft® Access, which means that once you have the computer and Windows, you're ready to install and run Summit!

Q: Can I run the Summit software on the "Cloud"?
Some services offer remote backup of your data and program automatically. This is a critical feature, but keep in mind that you usually pay for each element of their service. Depending upon your choice of vendor, it can start at around $30 per user. Ask us for specifics as you begin your price shopping to ensure you get what you really need and not over-pay.

Q: How do I upsize my program edition?
A: If you licensed the software through Standard Licensing, you will receive credit for your original licensing purchase when you upsize to the next edition (i.e. Lite to Plus, Plus to Pro, Pro to Deluxe, or Deluxe to Premium), and you will only need to pay the difference. If you licensed the software through Monthly Licensing, you simply start paying the monthly cost of the next edition. We will provide the latest version with your upsized system.
The Continuity Plan can be paid for on a monthly or annual basis.
For those with Standard Licensing, the Continuity Plan is the method of obtaining the benefits desired while keeping the monthly costs to a minimum.
