Eagle Business Management Software

System Requirements

Client/Workstation

Operating System Requirements
  • MS Windows 10
  • MS Windows 8.1
  • MS Windows 7
Minimum Hardware Requirements

Be aware that the minimum requirements are the minimum necessary to run the Eagle Business Management Software (EBMS) program. Your system may have sufficient resources to run EBMS, but not in an efficient manner. See your computer consultant or an Eagle Software support consultant for more details or recommendations.

  • An Intel i3 CPU or greater. 
  • 3 GB of RAM or higher
  • Minimum of 5 gigabyte of free disk space initially - space needs requirements may increase with use.
  • Most recent printer driver (download updated drivers from manufacturer's website).
  • Monitor with a resolution of 1366x768 (Greater resolution is advantageous for lengthy documents and lists).
Recommended Hardware Requirements
  • An Intel i5 CPU or greater. 
  • 6 GB of RAM or higher
  • Minimum of 5 gigabyte of free disk space initially - space needs requirements may increase with use.
  • Most recent printer driver (download updated drivers from manufacturer's website).
  • Monitor with a resolution of 1600x1040 (Greater resolution is advantageous for lengthy documents and lists).

Data Server      

Operating Systems 
  • Windows Server 2016 with Desktop Experience 
  • Windows 2012 and 2012 R2 Server 
  • Windows 2008 R2 Server (32-Bit or 64-Bit)
  • Windows 7 Peer Server (32-Bit or 64-Bit)(3 or fewer users)
Minimum Hardware Requirements (3 users max)
  • An Intel i5 CPU or greater. Clock speeds of 3.0Ghz or more are strongly encouraged.  EBMS only uses a second thread occasionally.
  • 6 GB of RAM or higher
  • Minimum of 10 gigabyte of free disk space initially - space needs requirements may
    increase with use and EBMS upgrades may require up to 3x the normal space.
  • Most recent printer driver (download updated drivers from manufacturer's website).
  • Monitor with a resolution of 1366x768 (Greater resolution is advantageous for lengthy documents and lists).
Recommended Hardware Requirements

Each business needs to determine their individual server requirements based on the number of users, functions the server will be expected to perform, and more.       

  • An Intel Xeon CPU or similar.  Clock speeds of 3.0Ghz or more are strongly encouraged.  EBMS only uses a second thread occasionally.
  • 16 GB of RAM or higher
  • Solid State hard drive for EBMS data
  • Minimum of 10 gigabyte of free disk space initially - space needs requirements may increase with use and EBMS upgrades may require up to 3x the initial space.
  • Most recent printer driver (download updated drivers from manufacturer's website).
  • Monitor with a resolution of 1366x768 (Greater resolution is advantageous for lengthy documents and lists).
  • Windows Server operating system

Network

A wired Gigabit network is required to use the EBMS software on a network.  Ensure that all network cables are securely connected, not pinched, or traveling around corners with a radius tighter than 2".  Using a WiFi network to connect the EBMS Client/Workstation to the EBMS data server is not supported. The only exceptions are the TimeTrack Browser, TimeTrack App, and MyTime products. 

Printer Requirements

A graphics printer is required since reports are printed in graphics mode for clarity and style. It is recommended that an inkjet or laser printer be used for reports rather than a dot matrix printer.

Recommended Printers:
  • A laser printer is recommended for lengthy reports because of greater speed.
  • An inkjet printer is recommended if color is required or if speed is not a critical issue.
  • A Datamax label printer for printing inventory/bin labels
  • An Epson receipt printer for POS receipts.

Apps

EBMS Apps are available for the MS Windows tablets and smart phones. Review the Using Apps with EBMS section of the Main documentation for requirement details and App operating system options.


* EBMS works with most laser and inkjet printers but satisfaction varies from printer to printer.  HP and Xerox seem to deliver the best compatibility.  Operating Systems, drivers etc. vary from computer to computer affecting speed, margin configuration and more.  Supported printers and other peripherals are listed on the online store.
