I have purchased a dell T320 (see attachment). I need to get the software and the server online, and connected in a way I can have other user CAL connect to the server from the field. I need information exchanged from the device to the server. I really don't know how to achieve my goals. I am trying to plan ahead and get someone to help me if any issues should arise. Now I don't know if its coming assembled complete with software installed or not. Delivery date is April 23rd the latest.
Task break Down
Set up the box. (i can do this)
install software and updates(i can do this)
sql, server 2008, planswift, sage contractor 100, quickbooks premiere, ect.
Now get you Online with me remote. Tell me how to connect the server so I can connect over WAN with tablets and phones. What do I need?
Connect all te software, import pricing from rsmean cost data. and set something up where I can drop a revised database every three months.
Set planswift up to connect with rsmeans data and build templates of assemblies. Connect planswift with sage 100 contractor which is project management/ document management/pricing estimator. Take sage data and export and imports data to/from quickbooks premiere.
Get online with vpn or static ip??? will 30mb down and 6up be enough for five users at a time?
I need to connect one program to another is a series like this and im told with a little effort all of these programs will work seamlessly together.
I have information that comes to my email I need stored
Basically anything that comes up.
I have purchased support with all of these software packages for installation so if we get stuck.
This is an on call basis, which more than likely going to be more than less.
Please be willing to work with me anywhere from 8am-6pm Central Time M-F. and maybe other times if i have an emergency and need remote support.
I am also looking in to a cloud based solution and a colocation service.'
