There are two ways to get hold of ClinicOffice :-
- You can subscribe to the cloud-based ClinicOffice Hosted Edition (monthly payments) or…
- You can purchase the Startup, Pro or Server Edition (one-off purchase) which is installed on your own computer(s).
Startup, Pro or Server Edition
|No large up-front payment – instead you pay a monthly subscription for as long as you wish to use the software.|
|After purchasing, you own the software license for life. There are no additional compulsory charges.|
|Our Support Plan is included in the monthly subscription and all the benefits (backups, discounts etc.) are included as standard.|
|Our Support Plan is an optional extra. If you don’t join the Support Plan, you can still get free support via the ClinicOffice Support Forum.|
|The Hosted Edition requires no installation, but it does require a good internet connection. As with any on-line service, if your internet goes down you lose access.|
We host your database for you on our secure servers and perform regular backups and maintenance on your behalf.
|The program is installed locally on your own computer(s) and you will need to periodically update the software yourself (updates are free).|
Your database is stored on your own server (or networked computer) and you are responsible for backing up your data.
|ClinicOffice is accessible from anywhere as long as you have an internet connection.|
We recommend using a Windows PC, but you can use any device which can access a Windows Server via Remote Desktop (e.g. Apple MAC, Chromebook, iPad, Android etc).
|You can only access ClinicOffice from a Windows computer which has ClinicOffice installed on it and which is physically connected to your network.|
Remote Access is still possible using 3rd party services, but this is something that you will need to manage yourself.
|Accessing the Hosted Edition is likely to be a bit slower than accessing it on your own computer, but as long as you have a decent internet connection, the performance will certainly be acceptable.|
|As long as your PCs are a reasonable specification, then running over a wired Local Area Network (LAN) is the best option – especially if you choose the Server Edition.|
|A ‘hosted’ program runs on a remote computer, so some features aren’t available in the Hosted Edition.|
For example, you can’t scan documents directly into ClinicOffice from a local scanner (although documents can be scanned locally and then uploaded).
|When run locally on a computer, there are no limitations as to functionality. Please bear in mind that ClinicOffice is ‘modular’ so you may need to purchase additional modules to use specific features.|
