Do I have to buy a Server?
 
Absolutely not! We provide a Server running the proper software to host your data so that you can access it through the internet using compatible Client software.
Do I need to use a server, or can I use this on just my desktop computer?
 
The use of a server is not a necessity to run this software. It can run on a single computer. But then only one computer can access the data. If more than one access point to your data is desired, then a server is necessary.
What is 'Server' software and 'Client' software?
 
Server software is the software used to run the database and make it accessible on a network. The Client software is used in the other computers that will access the data through the network being run on the server.
I'm not a computer expert. Do I need to know networking and servers to make this work?
 
It's not necessary for you to know how to network a server. That's where we come in. We provide the information and assistance needed for you to connect to the server. You will need to have high-speed internet service to your farm for office access. For access to the barn, you will need either a network cable run to your barn, which is unlikely, or a wireless router to a laptop which is very common today. For access with an iPad, iPhone, or iPod Touch, cell phone network access (G4) or Wi-Fi is needed. Contact us if you have questions.
I live several states away from Wisconsin. How can I get to my data?
 
The great thing about today's internet is that you can be across the country and still have access to your data. As long as you have high-speed access and the correct access software, your data is there whenever you want it.
How much does your software cost?
 
The cost for this software is composed of the client software for your access computers, and the Herdware Remote software. We have a number of package pricing options to choose from.
What services do you provide for the periodic Herdware Remote payment?
 
The periodic payment for the Herdware Remote software includes the use of a server to host your database along with the server software necessary to present it securely over the internet for only you to access. It also includes the secure business class data access speeds, periodic backups, technical support, Herdware Remote updates when available, and the convenience of accessing your data from several sources at the same time, 24/7.
I have a lot of information saved in other software. Can this information be transferred?
 
Data Migration is an added service that we have available, if you want to have some of your existing data imported. You will need to consult with us on your situation to prepare a plan.
What if I want a copy of my data. If the server is yours, can I get my data?
 
While it is true that the server hardware and software remains in the ownership of Herdware Remote, the data file and the data contained belongs to you, and can be used at your discretion. There are export functions available within Herdware Remote that allow you to save your data from the tables into Excel files and more.

Do I need to copy my data to operate it on more than one computer?
 
Copying your data will no longer be needed. It remains on your server and is accessed with client software by your computers with internet access. this will also reduce the instances of data corruption caused by improperly copying data files. It will also eliminate the situation of having your data copied on more than one computer and entering data into the wrong one.

What additional services do you provide?
 
In addition to the services included with the Standard or the Premium plan, we also offer addition services. These include migration of data from other software or spreadsheets, maniplation of data to correct errors, personal training via on-line "screen sharing" software, and client software installation assistance.
Will this software help me manage animals besides alpacas?
While it is true that Alpaca Herdware Remote is designed primarily for alpaca herd management, you can also manage other animals by using our species definition tools. This allows you to enter vital information about whatever species you choose.
