A modern computer with at least 2GB of memory (4GB recommended) and a dual-core processor or better is necessary for each EMDECS work station. Windows Vista or later is required as an operating system, or a Mac running OS 10.7.3 or later. An Apple iPad is an excellent mobile device that will run EMDECS well.
As EMDECS is hosted over the ‘cloud’, a business quality broadband internet connection that can download data at a rate of 1.0Mbps or better and upload data at a rate of 512Kbps or better is also required.

In order to make use of hand-held scanners and label printers, the latest Java software will have to be installed on at least one work station (better suited to a desktop or notebook computer as not all mobile devices can run Java). Java software can be obtained for free, here at java.com.
Web browsers should always be as close to the latest update version as possible. Any aging operating systems or browser version will eventually become unsupported by online systems, so it’s a good idea to stay up to date.
