System Requirements for Effective Group Collaboration Software

System Requirements

Easy to Install, Simple to Maintain and Ultra Reliable

“FacilitatePro has minimal system requirements and can be set up to run with little monitoring. All the data is stored in a single file so back-ups are simple. I expect to install upgrades a couple of times a year and that's about it..”

— Les Yaw, Luther College

FacilitatePro™ is easy to install and maintain. Installation typically takes 15-30 minutes. The server is designed such that a non-technical facilitator can install the application on a laptop computer for a portable meeting environment, if required. A system administrator would be responsible for a networked server implementation.

Participant and Facilitator access via any standard web browser 

FacilitatePro supports most web browsers on just about any hardware and software platform, including Windows, Apple, UNIX, and LINUX. And, it works seamlessly with most tablets and even can be used with smartphones. There's no need for users to download special applications or plug-ins.

FacilitatePro is a pleasure to work with. I have another event tomorrow. Being able to work up ideas in parallel is going to shorten the event by 2 or 3 hours. Also, virtually everyone in the event is a strong introvert. Letting them write anonymously in their own little world should be a great help. And, being able to make real-time changes in a conference as the session evolves helps keep the team on track
