System requirements:

AuctionMan/TENDER is a PC-based software system for the management of all types of multiple-item tender sales which is just as happy on a desktop as it is on a notebook or a network!

It runs on 16- and 32-bit PCs under Windows 8, Windows 7, Vista, XP, 2000, Me, 98 and 95 (N.B. 64-bit versions of Windows require XP MODE (or equivalent) support - we do NOT support 64-bit Windows). A printer is required for report (i.e. catalogues, tender results, invoices, etc.) printing; e.g. laser, ink-jet, dot matrix.

AuctionMan/TENDER is suitable for both multi- (network) and single-user (stand-alone) application on Windows-compatible networks.

Each PC will need 8MB of free disk space into which to install AuctionMan/TENDER and 4MB of memory (RAM) to run it.
