Built-In Database


Big Business includes built-in Database software, which means:
• no additional purchase
• no additional installation
• no additional setup or configuration
You simply install Big Business and start it.

For one user only, there is one piece of software. For multiple users, there are two pieces of software:
• Server goes on one computer and manages your Data File
• Client goes on all computers you want to connect
For most Updates you only need to update your Server software.

The following Updates change the Database, so you might update Clients, too:
• Big Business 13.06 includes an update to Security Internals
• Big Business 13.03 includes an update for macOS Big Sur compatibility
Updating Clients is not required but is recommended for the latest security and compatibility.

This Solution provides additional details. (6575)

Big Business includes Quick Support, built-in live help, which you can turn on to have these integrations done for you.
