Frequently asked questions (FAQs)

Here are answers to the most commonly asked questions.

Does installing Altair require individual installation on each desktop?
No. Altair is installed on a single central server. Once this is done, every user will be able to access it using their regular web-browser, from any desktop.
Is access to information secure?
Yes. Each user group has its own access rights. You can also ensure that some data access is restricted to particular users: for example, if you want to open your CMMS to service engineers, you can restrict access so that each provider can only open their own work orders.
Can you use Altair through a secure connection?
Yes. Altair is a web application, so you can secure its access by using HTTPS, a VPN, etc.  We can help you set up the right configuration at the network infrastructure level.
Our users are always on the move and use laptops. Can they connect with Altair?
Yes. Following the configuration of your network’s infrastructure, Altair will be available through the 3G network from any operator. Furthermore, our synchronization tool  allows your technicians to continue to use Altair offline.
We already have an ERP; can we make it communicate with Altair?
