Jump to: navigation, search

High 5 Software has two generations of mobile products. The older generation was called Tech Portal and this is also still used for the Customer Portal. The new generation is SME Mobile with products such as Mobile Tech for SME, Mobile Subcontractor for SME, Barcode for SME, Dispatch Plus for SME, and Time Tracker for SME. Both products use Web Services, but have different versions. Below are instructions for updating for both generations.
