XpertMart Hardware Requirements




Computer technology changes at such a rapid pace these days that we recommend re-evaluating your existing hardware configuration at least once a year. Often times the investment in new hardware far exceeds the labor costs of working with sub-optimal hardware. We recommend you contact your XpertMart dealer to make sure you have the most up-to-date hardware specifications.

These are the minimum hardware requirements we are looking for in a PC for optimal performance of XpertMart:

Single Store Main
- 450 MHz processor
- 256 MB RAM
- 6 GB hard disk
- CD-ROM drive
- 56k Modem

Single Store Remote
- 450 MHz processor
- 128 MB RAM
- 2 GB hard disk
- CD-ROM drive
- 56k Modem

Multi-Store Main
- 1 GHz processor
- 512 MB RAM
- 10 GB hard disk
- CD-ROM drive
- 56k Modem

Multi-Store Remote
- 450 MHz processor
- 128 MB RAM*
- 2 GB hard disk
- CD-ROM drive
- 56k Modem
* If the store is part of a chain of 10 or more stores, we strongly recommend 256 MB.
 

Backups
We strongly recommend that you have an external storage system such as a Zip Drive or CD Writer to make daily backups of your database. These backups should be stored away from your computer. Ideally you would have 7 disks on which to make backups, one for each day of the week. In the event of a serious technical problem, we are not responsible for data recovery if you have not been making backups.
