Synergy SPC Software Setup and Implementation

Software Install (Estimated time: 15-20 min.)
With Synergy SPC software you have the option to install on a server or locally on workstations. If the software is installed on the server, just simply create a shortcut to the applicable exe file(s). No client
install is required. Since the software is a flat file system, minimal if any IT support will be needed. To install the software simply place the CD into the workstation and follow the setup screens.
