System Requirements

eVisitor runs on most Windows computers in use today and any MS supported version of Windows.  It is a cloud-based solution so most of the work is done on our servers.  It does require good access to the internet.  Here are some details for your IT staff:

Internet                                               1-2 Mbps up/down      3-5 Mbps up/down or more

Installation and updates:
For installation and some updates, you need admin rights on the computer.
Most updates do not need admin rights.
We  release updates periodocally, currently around once a month.  eVisitor checks for updates when it is started.  If it sees an update, it will prompt you to install it.  The updates are less than 20MB, so they tend to load in much less than 1 minute.

User Rights:
eVisitor installs in the user space, so it gets installed for each user. 
The user needs to have "rights" to the printer settings and the printer spooler and queue.  It is recommended to allow the user to remove jobs from the printer queue.

Portable setup:
eVisitor runs fine on a laptop with a hot-spot internet link.  This is very useful for evacuations.

Tablet computers:
eVisitorPass runs on a Windows tablet such as a Microsoft Surface.  It is best to use a keyboard.  While the screens can work with a touch screen, the on-screen keyboard interferes with the fields on the screen.

Macintosh computers:
eVisitorPass can run on a MAC by installing MS Windows inside the MAC.  (details)


Internet / Firewall / Proxy server:
eVisitorPass uses standard web protocols.  Typical machines and networks have full access by default.

If your computer or network has restricted access to the internet or if your firewall or proxy server blocks web sites, you may not be able to install or logon to eVisitorPass.  Have your IT staff add these ports in your firewall's white list:
