SoloAssist is designed to run on Microsoft Windows operated devices such as, PC desktop computers, laptops and tablets. If you are purchasing a new device or would like to know the device requirements SoloAssist needs to run, please use this table as a guide.

Please note, SoloAssist will only run on Apple Mac devices using either Apple Boot Camp, Parallels or Fusion with Windows 10. Our feedback from existing clients recommends Parallels as the popular product of choice.

We recommend using the Microsoft Surface Go 128GB for working on the run, and a desktop dual screens 27”+ workstation for estimating and quoting in the office.

Dual Screens

SoloAssist does not require dual screens to use, however with dual screens you can work faster and more efficiently. You can measure quantities in Plan Scan on one screen and view your quote check list on the other screen.

With the low price of LCD monitors, it has become an affordable solution for the modern office. Popular monitor sizes are 24 inch and 27 inch widescreens, giving you plenty of viewing space to read your plans and measure quantities.

Data Backup

Protecting your data is one of the most important aspects of your business. If you do not already have a data backup strategy in-place, then you need to consider some of the following options.

One of the easiest ways to backup data is with an external memory stick or hard drive. These devices are relatively inexpensive and usually plug into your computer via USB. Some even come with software that will automatically backup all your files for you. Backing up your data should be a daily or at least weekly task.

Another great option for backing up your work is through one of the many cloud storage services, most of which are free to use. An added benefit is that you can access your work from any device with an Internet connection. This allows you to seamlessly share your work between multiple computers.
