    Minimum System Requirements

    Below are bare minimum system requirements for both AcctVantage Client and Server hardware. Better than minimum hardware will improve performance.

    AcctVantage Technical Support does not support hardware, network, or other IT setup outside of actually installing and configuring the AcctVantage software. However, we will be happy to work with your IT staff or consultants to discuss our experiences with various hardware/network situations.


    Notes on Operating Systems:  

    • AcctVantage releases are certified to work with specific versions of Macintosh and Windows Operating Systems.  
      • For Macintosh, certifications are done at the 10.x level, meaning that an AcctVantage version certified for 10.5 or earlier will not operate on a server or client running Mac OS 10.4.  
      • For Windows, the certification is done by major release version such as Windows XP or Windows 7.
    • We suggest turning OFF all Automatic Update programs that may update an Operating System version. The OS certification applies to both Server and Client machines.
    • Bookmark this article for the latest supported OS versions and the corresponding AcctVantage release.
    • AcctVantage operates on a Local Area Network (LAN) using TCP/IP protocols. If all users are on the same LAN, then dynamic IP address assignment is acceptable. It is recommended that all LAN connections be routed through switches rather than hubs and that “daisy-chaining” of switches and/or hubs be avoided.

    Bill of Materials Setup

    In AcctVantage ERP the Bill of Materials (BOM) for a Product is sometimes referred to as a Recipe.

    • The BOM Recipe can be defined for Assembly, Kit and Template Product types.
      • Once a Product is saved as one of the above types it can not be changed.
    • The BOM Recipe itself, however, is always modifiable. It changed be changed either on a global level through the Product record or on a one-off basis on a Sales Order or Work Order.

    Work Orders

    This function enables you to build an Assembly based on a Recipe.

    You also have the ability to adjust components & quantities on-the-fly if necessary and include soft costs such as labor or other Non-Inventory items.

    Note: This feature is not to be confused with the Auto-build Assembly feature, where the Assembly is built on-the-fly and bypasses the Work Order.
