Inexpensive Dedicated Peer Server for Small Firms
Time Matters v10 requires a dedicated server for SQL data storage. Small law firms (5 users and less) may not have the budget to purchase a real server running a real server operating system. Our Dedicated Peer Servers are configured offsite and shipped to you ready to plug in and run Time Matters v10. These Dell systems are custom configured for us and are covered by a Dell next business day onsite hardware warranty with options from 3-5 years.  Our turnkey systems with configuration included start at $899 for a Basic system or $1245 for the Advanced. We offer other options like a multi-layer onsite and offsite backup. If you wish we can even install your Time Matters software so it is ready to run when you open the box.

Download and install Microsoft .NET v3.5 SP1 before you start your v10 installation
Microsoft's .NET v3.5 SP1 must be installed on your servers and workstations as a prerequisite to the Time Matters v10 installation. The v10 installer will download it as you go but that means you must wait for this 230MB file to download for each PC. A time saving alternative is to download the .NET v3.5 SP1 "Full Package" once (to your server) then manually install it to each system before you start the v10 installation.
Download the .NET v3.5 SP1 Full Package here.
