Alternative Solution for Telecentres Using Windows
If your telecentre is using Windows instead of Linux, no worries. TCF, in collaboration with TechSoup Global, will soon make available a software package called OneRoof. Similar to Teseo for Telecentres, OneRoof seeks to address the technology needs of telecentres by providing the means for telecentre operators to access the data they need in order to demonstrate the critical importance and impact of public access computers. This impact data can be used to attract funding and supporters.
OneRoof is currently in beta and is available for download for a limited time. For more information, visit http://oneroof.com.
