Will I need to upgrade my printers and computers?

This is a difficult question as it depends on the age and architecture of your current hardware.

The OpenVPMS Server will be best installed on new server hardware, however as it exclusively uses open source software, the cost of the server will be purely hardware and setup costs.

It has been designed for network rather than serial operation, so some Netvet users will need to update some of their older workstations and cabling.

Most of the existing printers will operate as is. Due to the server operating using network rather than serial communications some users may need to purchase print servers for some of their printers (specifically label printers).

Overall the compatibility costs will be significantly lower than an equivalent upgrade to other applications.
