Technical Specifications and Requirements
TrailBlazer is built on robust Microsoft .NET technology. It uses Microsoft SQL Server, or SQL Server Express as its' data store, which is a rock solid, industry standard database system. The TrailBlazer system has been through a great deal of testing to ensure that it is very reliable, and very stable.
Being web based, TrailBlazer has the advantage of being accessible from anywhere, and if it needs updating - this only has to be done once for all users (windows based software would have to be updated for each users' PC).
As the Express version of Microsoft SQL server is free, it can be very cost effective to host your TrailBlazer system yourself, if you have the expertise. Alternatively, we can host it for you on our account with a large, reliable hosting company in the UK (performance is very good).
If we host the system for you, we will provide you with an FTP account, so that you can edit and upload your own banner images (top and bottom), and edit the print templates for invoices, booking in sheets, stickers, and booking out sheets.
To host TrailBlazer on your own server, the requirements are :
- Windows Vista, 7 or Microsoft Server 2003/ 2008
- IIS version 6 or above
- .NET Framework 4.0
- MSSQL Server 2005, 2008 or MSSQL Server Express
Built from our own experience
We have had plenty of experience of running electronic and computer repair centres in the past, and we think you will see this through the design of TrailBazer. Trailblazer has been created by Redbrook Technology who have a huge amount of experience in developing great quality, intuitive software.
