ReadyWorks consists of two components: Web Application Server and Database Server. For most environments, both ReadyWorks components are installed on a single server.
The ReadyWorks Server will interface with various on-prem and hosted systems that are utilized in your environment. Example connectors include:

Installing ReadyWorks is typically done over remote screen share with a member of our support team. Before scheduling an installation session, the list of prerequisites should be installed and configured on the ReadyWorks Server.
ReadyWorks source files are not available for public download. To receive a copy of the source files used during the installation, contact your account/sales representative or send an email to email@example.com with your account and company information.
