Question: Do your products work on a Mac?
Answer: We offer one product in a Mac specific version - Playmaker Pro. A native Mac application, this is a Staff Edition and ships on a Flash Drive. Playmaker Pro runs on all modern Macs and is also available in a Windows version. All of our other products run only on Microsoft Windows.
Question: Does your software get installed on my computer, or do I need an internet connection to run it?
Answer: All of our products get installed on a desktop or laptop computer. No internet connection is required.
Question: Are your products a one-time purchase or subscription?
Answer: All of our products are available as one-time purchase. In addition, our Easy-Scout Professional product is available on a "pay-as-you-go", subscription basis. We call this our Season Pass option.
Question: What is the main advantage of buying software, as opposed to renting it?
Answer: When you purchase software, you own a license to use the software. You pay for it one time and control the additional costs by choosing whether to pay for updates, upgrades, additional licenses and software maintenance and support. When you rent software, you pay a subscription fee for the use of the software for a specific time. The subscription fee is lower than the purchase price, and includes updates, upgrades and sometimes support as part of the subscription.
Question: Does "rented" software require an internet connection?
Answer: No. Our Easy-Scout products offer a rental option and do not require an internet connection.
Question: How many computers can I install a program on? When do I need to purchase additional licenses?
Answer: This varies by the product, the number of people who will use the software, and whether the purchaser is an individual or school. Generally speaking, unless a staff license is purchased, a license is required for each computer. Additional licenses are often available at a reduced cost when required.
Question: If I begin with a Trial Version, will the information entered be available if I purchase the software?
Answer: YES. All data entered in a trial version will be available when the software is purchased and activated.
Question: Can the data in your software be moved and shared easily between multiple computers or multiple users?
Answer: YES. This is easier with some products than others, but all of our products use data files that can be moved and copied. Our Athletic Equipment Inventory and Athletic Recruiting software are designed to allow multiple users to access and update shared data simultaneously.
Question: Is there a discount for purchasing multiple copies or licenses ?
Answer: YES. We offer a discount on additional user licenses for our Athletic Equipment Manager and Easy-Recruiter products. The discount varies based on the number of additional licenses that are purchased.
