Depending on your priorities and how fast you want to work, you can have full functionality in one to three weeks. Our techs and trainer are highly accessible. In most cases the software ships out as soon as we receive your order.
As soon as we receive your order your account executive will put you in touch with a technical support representative, called an implementation specialist. The specialist will help you determine hardware details and installing the software. The specialist can also help set some of the defaults, datacodes, and activities that your new system will need in order to suit your way of doing business, any existing data we have for your industry will be provided for you to start with as a base. You will be given some literature about Datacode Design, along with the software's user manuals; you should look over the documentation. Within a few days of your purchase the trainer will contact you. The trainer will out line a couple of steps you should complete before the initial training, and the first training session will be scheduled (normally within seven days). By the time you complete your first training session you will be well on your way to successfully operating PcHunter.

Although PcHunter is not web-based, it is web enabled with links to your web browser and email programs. If you’re looking for a solution that allows remote access to your database, contact our support department for their recommendations.
