How is 123insight installed?

123Insight Software Remote Installation Service
We provide a remote installation service whereby, at a mutually convenient time/date, we access your server remotely and install the application for you. It's a safe, hassle-free approach and is charged at a nominal fee of just £395.

The install covers:

  • Installation of Microsoft SQL Express software (please note that if you are opting for the full Microsoft SQL Server database, you will need to install this yourself)
  • We will install the server side of the application for you
  • We set all the permissions on the databases
  • We then install one client licence for you via Teamviewer. We take you through each step of the very straightforward installation process so you can then install all subsequent licences by yourself.
How is data migrated from an old system into 123Insight?

Is 123Insight a monthly subscription?

Yes, a Pay-As-You-Go rolling monthly subscription that includes upgrades and support. There is no minimum term contract. See our Pricing.

Are licences per user?

123Insight core licence are based on client installation not per user. The number of licences required is determined by two things: The number of client PC's you can install the 123Insight application on to and the number of active connections you can have to your 123Insight datasets.

In a Terminal Services or Citrix environment (where 123Insight is run from a central location) you would only install 123Insight once, in which case the second rule would restrict the number of users who could run 123Insight at any one time.

On a single PC, a user may have multiple instances of 123Insight running (i.e. run the application more than once) - in this case, each instance will consume a licence - again because of the second rule.

Are upgrades and support included in the monthly subscription?

Yes, upgrades and support are included in the monthly subscription price, there are no additional contracts. See our Pricing and build your quote online.
