Alice Versions

Alice is available in two separate versions for agencies with and without a shelter:

Hardware Requirements & Security - Alice software is compatible with any version of Windows® from Windows 95® on. It requires less than 30 MB of disk space and 50 MB of memory. The program runs entirely on your hardware under your control, while allowing for Internet access from remote sites. Security is ensured through encryption of the Alice software, database, and all communication with the database.

Affordability - The single agency version of Alice is available for a one-time price of $1,150. An annual $350 upgrade and support fee provides technical support by phone or email and regular software upgrades during the course of the year. There are no per-user charges for Alice software. Training is provided by telephone at the rate of $80 per hour to get staff up and running or to assist with specialized data entry or reporting needs. Basic user training takes two hours, and customization training for administrators takes about three-quarters of an hour.

Customers - Alice software is being used by domestic violence and sexual assault agencies in 35 states. It has been adopted by 11 statewide coalitions on behalf of their member agencies. Alice is equally at home in small agencies and those with in-house technical staff and multiple locations. The common denominator is the remarkably positive feedback that staff offer on the program's ease of use and range of features.
