Realtrac Version 9 - Ending Support

September 1, 2015
Dear Valued REALTRAC Customer:
We have made the difficult decision to discontinue support of the Realtrac 9 Operating System on March 1, 2016.  We understand that this version has been a valuable tool for our clients, and we did not make this decision without serious consideration of our customers.  
Since launching Realtrac 9 in 2008, technology and computers have continuously improved, and as Microsoft has released newer operating systems, we have developed “workarounds” to allow the Realtrac 9 system to function in modern computing environments. With Windows Vista, Windows 7 and Windows 8, we have had to force users to disable many built-in security systems that allow the Realtrac 9 system to operate.
In addition, Realtrac 9 software uses several third-party components; however, many of our software partners are no longer in business. Therefore, we are no longer able to provide support for these components, nor can we continue to develop fixes as the technology around us evolves.
Realtrac 10 has been on the marketplace for over a year, with enthusiastic customer response.   This completely integrated, state-of-the-art ERP system allows for a quick and easy transition for our Version 9 customers while utilizing 21st century technologies. A sampling of some of the new features and functions include:
  • Quality Module
  • State-of-the-art Shop Floor Data Collection with Touchscreen Technology
  • Streamlined and Dynamic Data Entry/Searching Technologies
  • Expanded Job and Estimating Screens
  • Improved Routing and Scheduling
  • Multi-item Quoting and Invoicing
