Hello all,

Does anybody use electrical certificate and report software on a Mac OS based system such as iMac's and MacBook's etc? Not tablets or smartphones.

Many thanks in advance,

SS.

No, however, I hear reports that EasyCert worked under parallels and VMWare in a Windows VM.

Thanks for your reply Paul, we are hoping to find a product which supports full use via Mac OS without the need to run any form of Windows on the Mac OS. Thanks again.

Perhaps a web based solution would be best for you then?
That would be platform independent, but it would mean you need internet access all the time you want to use it.
Fine for some, not for most.

IET, take note.

Have a look at Shine Forms. It used to be called PIRform. They are working on a cloud based solution that can also be used off line. It might be worth emailing them to see what they say? I emailed Certsure (NICEIC and Elecsa) this morning to enquire about their cloud service and weather there are plans to be able to use offline. The answer was that there are, but not imminent.

Does amtech work on a apple?

Thank you, I don't think Amtech supports Mac OS.

The NICEIC system is not for us, for many reasons.

i have downloaded their free version and will see how it is to use over the next few months, I have also down loaded their android app, not sure yet if the app talks to the free version or only the £200 version.

I'm testing the product also on MacOS, so far so good.
