•Windows Designed. ProTrac is a true Windows
 application, not redesigned or modified software.
 This means you can fax from any terminal, receive and
 send E-mail, gain access to the Internet, provide EDI
 capabilities, and are able to provide electronic catalogs.

•NEW!! Windows NT Terminal Server. This
 represents the newest, cutting edge technology from
 Microsoft. Known as “Thin-Client”, it provides
 economic data transmission using a simple 56K line.
 Most other applications require more expensive dedicated “T1” phone lines.

•Thin Client Terminal server is less expensive to own and support.                There is no disk drive and no game
 for your staff to play like a normal PC.

•Equipment Peripherals. Our integrated system is compatible with the most advanced hardware
 available, including bar code scanners, signature Pads, document imaging scanning, and the new
 ThinStar® terminal, (as seen above).
