Hardware and Operating System Recommendations

Textbook Tracker has been developed to work under both Windows and Macintosh-based operating systems. With the exception of subtle differences between the controls at the tops of windows and minor differences in operating system functionality, the program operates identically across both platforms.

Here are the minimal recommended hardware and operating system requirements for Textbook Tracker:

Other Recommendations

  • COMPanion recommends modern, fast hard drives for Data Stations. Database applications are disk intensive and with modern hardware, performance is greatly enhanced. Solid State Drive (SSD) technology has shown promising results for early adopters.
  • Also, please note that our standard report format is PDF; all operators will need a PDF reader to view reports and some notices—on both the Data Station and any associated Workstations.

*Controller and Central Union RAM Recommendations

  • Up to 5 collections: 4 GB or more
  • Up to 20 collections: 8 GB or more
  • Up to 30 collections: 12 GB or more
  • Up to 50 collections: 16 GB or more
  • *For Controller or Central Union configurations managing more than 50 collections, contact COMPanion for specific recommendations.
