Jackrabbit is web-based software. This means that there is nothing to download, no discs or applications to load onto your computer to get started. All you need is a high-speed Internet connection and your User ID & Password to jump right in.
Preferred browsers for optimal performance are Internet Explorer and Firefox on both PC and MAC computers.
How long does it take to implement the system?
We have a Getting Started guide, video and weekly webinar which contain implementation steps that describes how to successfully and quickly implement this system in a matter of a week or two. We also have Jumpstart Coaches that can help you get off to a great start with your implementation.

What if I want to terminate my relationship with Jackrabbit Technologies? How do I get my data?
You can terminate your relationship with Jackrabbit Technologies at anytime. You can also download your information to Excel at any time to have a backup in your possession.
What if I don’t have high-speed Internet available at my facility?
Many cell phone providers (Verizon, AT&T, Sprint, etc) offer portable high-speed wi-fi hotspots that can support connections to multiple computers. www.HughesNet.com offers high-speed Internet service via a satellite dish. Also, www.NetZero.net and www.NetScape.com offer a near high-speed connection (using data compression) over a regular dial-up phone line. While the system can be used via a dial-up Internet connection, it is just much slower using this method.
What if my Internet connection goes down?
If you have a smartphone (Android, iPhone, etc) with at least a 3G connection, you can tether your computer to your phone and access the Internet at near high-speed connection rate. Some of our clients have www.NetZero.net orwww.NetScape.com as an inexpensive near high-speed connection over a regular dial-up line as a backup.
What has been done to ensure a highly available system?
Our systems have no single point of failure. This means that every component of the system has a backup that can be used in case of some type of failure. Most of these components are actually set up in such a way that the system will fail-over without causing any down time.
Our servers are located in a Enterprise Class state-of-the-art computer facility, www.Peak10.com, specifically built for supporting Internet servers. This facility was designed for providing high availability to the Internet. The data center is engineered with multiple levels of security, uninterruptible power supplies (UPS), redundant HVAC systems and fire suppression, as well as 24/7 monitoring and management. It is our belief that our systems will have a higher uptime than your own computer systems.
