About our software
Yes this will be released within the next 3 months for all our suite of products.
The programs are developed for Windows based environment. Unfortunately they will not work on a Mac.
Any bugs encountered will be corrected by releasing new versions of the software, in parallel to the Microsoft Excel versions. So long as you have purchased a legal copy of the software and this has been activated for use on a specific machine the new updates will be free and you will be able to download these to your specific machine. New versions for each Microsoft Excel release will have to be purchased again. For example, to move from Excel 2003 to Excel 2007 you will need to purchase a new copy of the software.
You will need a connection to the internet to download the program and to activate it. Thereafter there is no need for an internet connection. Of course if you have software on board the ships, such as the Masters General Account/Portage Bill it is advantageous to have an internet connection so that you can send data files, libraries and wage scales between the ship and the office. Data files are very small and the transfer rate is fast and cheap to operate.
