Minimum Hardware Requirements

Latest Version 6.2

The Eclipse Insurance Agency Management System is constantly being upgraded to bring you more integrations, better functionality and smoother interfaces. This means you can spend more time working on your business than in your business, and your associates can build better relationships with clients.

It also means your computer system and internet connection need to be ready to handle the information you’ll be creating, uploading and downloading. We’ve created a guide to the recommended minimum software and hardware requirements for running the latest version of Eclipse. Please review the information and contact us with any questions or concerns.

Note: If your system only meet the minimum requirements listed below, Eclipse may not run at peak performance. We also advise against running Eclipse on Home versions of Windows OS.

Note: Running Eclipse On The Minimum Requirements May Be Slow.
