LOCAL AREA NETWORK (LAN)
Custom Payroll can be operated successfully on most industry standard LAN's. Two-station simultaneous reporting from a single payroll data file is permitted. Workstations running different operating systems can share the program via a LAN or multitasking environment to work on several payrolls at once.

It is being used in the field with over 19,000 employees/payroll, and has been laboratory tested with files containing more than 60,000 employees. DOS file size limits may reduce the maximum size in some older machines, or in new machines running older operating system versions.
