Antiquity has simple requirements, as long as your computer is running one of the supported operating systems. Most computers manufactured in the last few years should be fine. We would generally recommend 8 GB RAM (4 GB RAM minimum).

Screen resolution is important and we recommend a minimum screen height of 900 pixels. Some older monitors (especially older laptops) only have a vertical resolution of 768 pixels and, although Antiquity will run in this, it is not ideal. If you are using an older laptop with such a low screen resolution, please consider upgrading it. It is unlikely that Antiquity will run on a 'netbook'.

Please see below for network requirements when running Antiquity on two or more computers. Antiquity will run in a mixed network of Mac & PC without any problems.

Although Antiquity runs identically on both Mac & Windows computers, if you’re thinking of buying a new computer and don’t have any specific preference, we would strongly recommend that you go for a Mac.

* Please note that support for the specified operating systems has been deprecated and will be removed in a future update. We therefore recommend you are upgrade to one of the newer operating systems.

Antiquity Mobile for iPad provides access to your contacts, stock and invoice data whilst out and about. Data is stored locally on your iPad so you can access it even when you don’t have internet access. if you’re at an exhibition and a customer asks about an item that you don’t have with you, you can instantly find that item on Antiquity Mobile, show her the details and images and even email a personalised PDF stock sheet. Since Antiquity Mobile stores all your current and past stock as well as consignments, you even have access to items sold many years ago - unlike viewing items on a website which is usually limited to current or recent items.

With Antiquity Mobile you can see all the details about a customer's wants and interests, previous purchases and even check how much she paid. You can see your cost prices for stock, enabling you to respond appropriately if the customer tries to negotiate a discount. You can also enter contact details of people you meet at an exhibition and transfer those details directly back to Antiquity in the office.

Network Requirements

When accessed over a network, any data entered into Antiquity on one computer is automatically updated to all the other computers ensuring all users have the latest information to hand.

Antiquity can run on a single computer or on up to three computers without a dedicated server. A dedicated server is required for four or more computers. For all networked installations, we recommend a wired network for security and speed although Antiquity will usually work perfectly well on a wireless network with a strong signal. We do not recommend using Antiquity on a wireless network where the signal is weak or regularly cuts out.

The setup fees include remote installation and configuration of Antiquity on your computers. Please note however that we do not install your computers or computer networks and can only provide limited computer and network support. We recommend that you have an agreement with a local I.T. support company with which we will work on your behalf to address any Antiquity related issues, so you can concentrate on your business and not have to worry about the geeky technical stuff. We will provide Antiquity related assistance to your I.T. support company, if required.
