ROES tip #5: Scotty, I need more power!

APS-logo ROESA common complaint we get from customers regarding ROES is “it runs slow”; “it freezes up on me”; “it takes 2-3 minutes to change between catalogs”.  So is it the program?  Does it have a personal grudge against you?

Nope – sorry.  Although it might be convenient to blame the program it’s usually your computer’s fault not having enough RAM or too slow a processor.  ROES like LOT OF RAM – the more the better.  If you are running Windows 7 I recommend at least 8 gigabytes of RAM; Windows 8 I would get even more like 12 or 16 gigabytes of RAM.  Or get a new computer if yours can’t be upgraded.dram_module_micron

You might say “But Stan, that costs money!”  Sure it does.  But isn’t your time worth more than what it might cost to upgrade or get a new computer?  What is your time and effort worth to sit and wait for the computer to respond or worse yet freeze up and you lose a job?  That’s wasted time and money then – something we all can’t afford to lose!

So do yourself a favor – upgrade that computer or get a new one.  You’ll be amazing how much faster ROES and all of your other programs run and how much it can reduce your stress.  I’ve always been able to find good buys on computers at TigerDirect.com, Amazon.com or even Staples.com

Wishing everyone a Super Fantastic Day,

Stan
