One of the DTE advantages -- it is available on several system platforms. It may even be
available for your current system then Down To Earth can upgrade when you're ready.
Down To Earth is flexible and cross platform compatible. That flexibility
allows you to protect your current hardware investment. Or, if you change platforms, you can easily
transfer your current DTE software and data files.
If you've been shopping for technology, you
know the system options are almost limitless. So is Down To Earth because the
DTE programs are linked with the programming

compatibility with other systems may also be available.
| The system requirements and specifications for each platform are dependant upon
the number of users and system clients, data storage expected, and the size of the business. If you
have specific questions to see if Down To Earth is compatible with your current or future platform,

network including ODBC connectivity. The one difference is the visual appearance of DTE input windows
and graphical interface features such as API and image display.
VAX/VMS/ALPHA: For those of our customers that have a history of
developing software within a VMS OS environment, we also offer Down To Earth for this
platform. As with the UNIX/LINUX environment, the VMS Alpha does not support the
graphics and interface features supplied by a Windows
Provider: For those business
that simply do not want to manage their own technology department, a Hosting Service Provider (HSP) may
