Technical Specification

Software 4 Dentists have developed Bridge-IT using the latest development tools. It employs the new Microsoft .NET technology which is the latest platform for running Windows based applications. By using this framework, not only does Bridge-IT have a modern, usable and elegant interface, but it is also ‘future proofed’. That is, whereas other dental applications based on older technology are becoming more and more incompatible with newer Windows versions, Bridge-IT has been designed to take advantage of the latest operating systems such as Windows 11.

Windows 10/11 Compatible

Network Specification

If you intend to use the Local version of the software (where the database is installed on your own server), we recommend a wired network for running Bridge-IT as there is information constantly travelling back and forth between the client PC’s and the database server. Although Bridge-IT will work over a wireless network (and we have numerous practices that do), we strongly advise against it.  Wireless signals can be unreliable and may drop their connection to the server at inappropriate times (such as when saving clinical notes).  In addition, wireless networks are much slower than cabled ones (around one tenth of the speed at best), therefore we suggest wired connectivity whenever possible.

For the Cloud version, the network specification is irrelevent as everything related to Bridge-IT is stored on our secure servers and only requires an internet connection.
