Groovix Demo Disc
The Groovix demo provides an easy way of trying out Groovix for yourself and can be run "live" without making changes to your computer. The demo is just one example of what's possible with Groovix and includes a whitelisted card catalog mode and a web/office mode with simple time management. We can customize every aspect of the software for you including time quotas, reservations, print management, filtering, acceptable use policies, authentication and remote management. We can customize Groovix to support additional hardware and software as well.
