Program Features
The Compass change feature reviews all system changes initiated by the download operator within the current session. A complete record of system modifications and the history of an account is also available.

DOS Conversion
With Compass, DOS conversion is seamless. Compass makes a copy of the existing DOS database and converts it to the Windows format.

Error Check
Distinct technology incorporated into Compass guides you through system programming. To ensure proper panel set-up, an error checking feature monitors programming and provides on-screen error alerts.

An on-screen help bar is displayed along the bottom of each screen for prompt assistance. Programming field numbers within each screen provide easy reference to the program sheet for installation and service.

Completely network compatible, Compass is engineered to accommodate up to 255 users. Multiple users may access the program and download simultaneously. Compass runs on Peer-to-Peer and LAN based networks. Each workstation can support its own modem.
