System Requirements

Getting Started with CareFor

CareForIT isn't software you need to install - it is cloud based. It runs on the browser you normally use to access web pages on the internet. Use this section to find out what browser and system settings you need to be able to get the best out of CareForIT. Please note that whilst your CareFor desktop site may be accessible within your mobile phone or tablet's browser, we cannot guarantee full functionality of your CareFor system. We always advise you use a PC or laptop to access the desktop version of CareFor.

Browser Requirements

For best results we recommend you use the latest version (but not a beta version) of your browser. We support:

-Mozilla Firefox (PC and Mac)

-Safari (Mac)

-Google Chrome (PC and Mac)

We're not saying CareFor won't work with any other browsers (or any beta version of the supported ones), but we don't have a formal quality assurance process for them at this stage.
