To effectively run PubWorks on your office computers the general rule-of-thumb is if you can run Windows, you can run PubWorks.

More specifically, minimum workstation requirements are as follows:

  • Windows 7 or newer
  • 17″ Monitor with 1028×768 resolution or better
  • 100gb Hard Drive
  • Ethernet Connection


PubWorks provides exceptional performance in the SQL Server environment.  PubWorks is compatible with all versions of Microsoft SQL Server 2008r2 or greater. We recommend SQL 2016 or greater.

Cloud Hosting

Think about getting the cloud if you:

  • Have offices with a robust internet connection
  • Need to access your data from outside of the office (at home or from hotspots around town)

What’s needed: You need to be a PubWorks SQL customer. PubWorks Access customer will first need to upgrade to SQL Server.

Steps: Once you’re ready to move, just send us a backup of your SQL Server database, we’ll migrate it to the cloud and adjust your configuration so PubWorks can find your cloud-based database.

“PubWorks is everything I needed and more. PubWorks worked with me to find out just what I needed. They were able to transfer all my data from our old MSDS program to PubWorks easily. Support is excellent, literally a phone call away. I couldn’t be happier, I am still finding things I can do with the software that will make our cost tracking a piece of cake; so many options and ways to do things.”
