dBuilder - Requirements - dBuilder

The dBuilder is a user-friendly and light-weight tourism system in respect to hardware, software and user prerequisites.  No expensive hardware purchases or improvements are required in order to operate.  If you can run Microsoft Office 2007 or later then you already have what you need.

"Would you prefer to spend time training staff on a system that they are unfamiliar with or rather use tools that they already know and trust?"  The latter is assured with the Builders' ease of use.  By following a logical and intuitive path through each travel itinerary, consultants are never at a loss for direction or uncertain of what to do next.

Hardware:  A personal computer or notebook of any kind is suitable for individual Builder users providing that the speed of opening and closing documents is acceptable in order to minimize waiting times.  We do however recommend the following for both optimum speed and comfort:

  • Core i3 Processor
  • 2GB RAM
  • 19" Monitor
  • Smallest Hard Drive on offer
  • DVD/CD-ROM is not required
  • Additional Graphics Cards are not required

Almost any personal computer is capable of acting as a network server, linking other computers together and sharing information with each other.

In respect to companies with up to 5 users, the Builder is able to operate comfortably using a free-standing computer acting as a network server.  No expensive server hardware or special installations are therefore necessary.

Todays technology requirements suggest that larger tourism organizations are likely to already have an existing system in place through which the Builder can operate.

Should you require further information on hardware and software options please visit the Computer Sales section of our website.

Software:  To enable the dBuilder to run the following minimum software applications must be in place:

  • Microsoft Office 2007 or later which must include:
    • Microsoft Excel
    • Microsoft Word
    • Microsoft Outlook
  • Microsoft Windows 7 or later

In order to enhance our support and service excellence we recommend that the following additional software applications are installed:

  • Teamviewer or similar
  • Skype

User Knowledge:  "Does one adapt the user to suit the tools or the tools to suit the user?"

As Microsoft Office applications are used in so many office environments, the dBuilder naturally integrates with existing working practices.

A basic understanding and working knowledge of Microsoft Excel, Word and Outlook is sufficient to start working with the Builder.  There is no need to be an expert at Excel functions, you do not even have to know how to construct a formula.

Training can consequently be kept to a minimum meaning that staff can become productive with minimum delay.
