What are the system requirements for installing AvAudit?

AvAudit is based on a FileMaker Pro database file. FileMaker Pro is required to view or edit AvAudit data. FileMaker Pro can be installed on the following platforms:

  • MAC: OS x Maverick v10.9, Mountain Lion v10.8, Lion v10.7
  • Windows: 8.1, 8.1 Pro, 8, 8 Pro, 7 Ultimate, 7 Pro, 7 Home Premium
  • iPad: FileMaker Go (is a free download)

How many users can be on one operator account? Is there a per user fee?

Limited only by WiFi connection load. The application resides on a FileMaker Server.

Pricing is based on a device fee with at least one PC/MAC in the system. One computer is required to migrate previous user documentation into the current protocol cycle.

How does the software allow access to multiple users without data being overwritten?

FileMaker uses standard record locking. The first user that edits a given record, when a requirement is displayed, locks out others from editing the same record. The record can still be viewed by others. When the first person leaves the record, the next person that begins the editing process has control of the record.

Is there a limit to the number of operator records an auditor can create?

An auditor and service provider will have to pay a fee (via credit card) for each set of audit records, an operator can do as many internal audits as desired during the protocol cycle.
