Natural Suite System Requirements

Natural Suite is a Windows-based client/server system using Microsoft's SQL Server, with your server(s) in the cloud or at your facility. Below are minimum configurations for workstations and servers. Because technology changes quickly and usage patterns vary, not all items may be shown - please consult with your hardware source for recommendations.

NATURAL SUITE WORKSTATION
If the server is at your facility, then a workstation that comfortably runs Microsoft Office should be able to run Natural Order. If the server is in the cloud, you can choose to use Remote Desktop on your workstations as this dramatically reduces the workstation requirements but note that you then need Remote Desktop Services installed on your cloud server.
