When visiting the ArchiOffice website we didn’t see the information on platform deployment details regarding its server and desktop versus mobile support. The developer has been kind to post a detailed summary in the comments below about the support of the Mac platform for this product–which originated on the FileMaker database platform.
ArchiOffice runs through a Web browser. As such any computing device supported on Windows, Mac, iOS and Android operating environments can access the ArchiOffice application. It’s mobility connections are quite solid, being both available on iPhone, iPad and on similar Android devices.
ArchiOffice does require a server environment for the database engine aspects of its workings. As such, it happens to require Microsoft Windows Server, which can be loaded into Boot Camp on a Mac or run on a low cost Windows box.
