This program can be set up in different configurations. Please consult with your salesperson to determine the best set up for your organization.
- Single Workstation - A single computer is used by all preparers for all functions. This computer is used to print all returns, reports, and checks. This computer is also used to transmit information to and from Central Site. This computer can be enabled to use an unlimited number of Electronic Return Originators and Paid Preparers. Please see General Directions for Software Configuration and Installation Basic Installation/Single Workstation in UltimateCL for installation directions.
- Networked, Multiple Workstations - The program is installed on only one computer that functions as a server, which is connected to other computers that function as workstations that can be used as transmitting computers via the server. Transferring of data from one computer to another is not necessary. However, it is important during installations and updates that all workstations close out of the program except one. Please see Networked, Multiple Workstations for UltimateCL for installation directions.
- Non-Networked, Multiple Workstations - The program is installed on one transmitting computer and on an unlimited number of non-transmitting computers. The non-transmitting computers transfer information to and from the transmitting computer, which in turn, transfers information to and from Central Site. The transmitting computer is used for all communications to and from Central Site. While the program can be installed on an unlimited number of non-transmitting computers, the purchase of the program enables only one license for a transmitting computer (or server as above). Please see Non-Networked, Multiple Workstations/Computers in UltimateCL for installation directions.
