People-Trak is a LAN based HRIS that automates a wide variety of human resources functions. Remote Access is a powerful
feature that adds a browser-based front-end to People-Trak for remote users who are not directly connected to the LAN or

provide HRIS features over dial-up connections.
Remote Access technology can be utilized over your corporate Internet. You simply use the appropriate IP address to connect

download or any software to install. Any user with appropriate security can start Remote Access using the IP address you
