Both our desktop scheduling software and online scheduling service have many common features but there are some differences. Our desktop product and online service can work together to give local access and your remote users browser access.

The online service is run on our servers on the Internet and accessed via a browser on any device, or our mobile apps from the various app stores. We backup, manage and look after your database.

The desktop software is installed on your Windows PC, or in a Windows VM on a Mac or Linux computer. You manage your local database.
