If you're going to run Lynx on a single PC computer only, you need to make sure it's big enough and fast enough to give you the performance you desire. The bottom line is that the more speed and capacity your PC has, the better the Lynx software will perform (this is true of any software). So get the biggest and fastest computer you can afford.
AT A MINIMUM, we recommend that your computer should have:
Note: If you have more than 500 customers, you should probably upgrade to at least a 300 MHz processor.
Note: The amount of RAM you have will directly effect performance, so more than 64 MB is even better.
Note: You may get started with less than this but as your business grows you will begin to keep more records on-line thereby requiring more space.
It's CRITICAL that you run daily backups of the system (left-click here for help on this). If you don't have one already, add a Zip Drive to your system for this purpose.
Note: After you have your system in place, contact Columbus Systems at (360) 943-0592 to make sure everything is okay, especially your back up procedure.
