  1. When required, all scheduled upgrades and system maintenance procedures are conducted on Friday and or Saturday evenings at 8:00 p.m. EST (Toronto) in order to minimize inconvenience to our subscribers around the world.
  2. Iseehear will provide advance notice of Scheduled Upgrades and System Maintenance Procedures to ensure subscribers have sufficient time to plan and prepare for the temporary service interruption.
  3. Application access will be temporarily unavailable in order to execute the upgrade or system maintenance procedures.
  4. Dates and times for all scheduled upgrades and system maintenance procedures will be posted in advance in the Notice Board section on the login access page, on the Support Desk Blogs and via Support Desk Twitter posts.
  5. Upgrades to the application will not affect the data that you have entered into the system.

Emergency Upgrades And System Maintenance Procedures

The only hardware requirements necessary to access SoftMouse.NET is a desktop or laptop computer running Microsoft Windows or an Apple MAC.
That is it.

Recommended mobile devices for SoftMouse.NET

Preferred Recommendations

Our first 3 choices are:
  1. Apple iPad Learn more: www.apple.com/ipad   
  2. Google Pixel Book Learn more: www.store.google.com/product/google_pixelbook   
  3. Microsoft Surface Pro Learn more: www.microsoft.com/en-us/surface/devices/surface-pro-4/overview   
These devices are certainly more on the pricier end. That said, if you are looking for timely feature updates, Operating System (OS) updates and security updates, we strongly recommend going with a brand (Apple, Google or Microsoft) that has full control on timely OS updates.

Please review SoftMouse browser requirements.

Secondary Android Tablet Alternatives

There is of course an array of other Android tablets, e.g. tablets using customized versions of the Android operating system (Lenovo, LG, Samsung, Dell, Huawei, Asus, …).

Please be aware that for Android tablets not provided by Google directly, features are not updated regularly, the operating system is not updated regularly and security patches are not updated regularly. For this reason, we don't recommend non-Apple, Google or Microsoft devices.

If you would like to discuss these options further, please do not hesitate to contact us by email or on our office line 416 492 4358 and we'd be happy to go over the options in more detail.
