					Server-Based Computing Model
XSellerator takes advantage of centralized computing for Windows, using Quorum’s DiStributortM
  hardware and network environment. Dealership applications are loaded on the server and existing
           PCs act as Windows terminals. Alternatively, dealers can purchase low cost, reliable
                                   “thin clients” instead of costly and difficult to support PCs.
                                             This model provides significant benefits to dealers:
        Lower Cost –            because the Windows Server does all of the work, this model significantly reduces
                                                                     the cost of purchasing and supporting PCs.
             More Secure –              automatic centralized backup, virus protection, security administration,
                      application access, disaster recovery and internet access and control provide a much more
                                                                           secure and reliable network platform.
                 Remote Access –                        allows remote sales, remote location and home-user connectivity
                                                          and use of the system — just like you were sitting at your desk!
                      Speed and Reliability –                     a local server allows the maximum application
                                    speed and system uptime without dependence on expensive WAN connectivity
                                                                                 (as required for ASP solutions).

                                                     by “shadowing” their software sessions and guiding them through
                                                                              answers to their questions or problems.
