Shape Software Technical Requirements

Updated April 29, 2022

Shape Software is powerful business technology built with cutting-edge programming techniques and languages. Because of this, certain hardware and software minimums are required to use Shape Software successfully. Please go through our minimum technical requirements to ensure that your CRM will operate efficiently. Please note that some features within Shape Software do require more advanced hardware and software requirements and some plugins, extensions, ISPs, and VPNs installed on your individual device or network may impede your Shape usage. These specs outline minimum needs to operate Shape and does not guarantee that all features within Shape will operate at top performance standards, as newer versions and hardware become available and may be needed for new features and product rollouts.

Internet Connectivity & Bandwidth

  • For Shape Software users, we recommend an Internet connection that supports a minimum of 100kbps per user (both upload and download).

  • For Shape Software users with Dialer enabled, we recommend an Internet connection that supports a minimum 200kbps per user (both upload and download) when utilizing a web phone or a VoIP desk phone. Note that this requirement does not apply when using a traditional landline or a cell phone.

  • If the Shape Software dialer is being used with a traditional landline, 1 available inbound line per active user is required. The dialer will place one inbound call per agent in order to initiate an outbound dial to the lead.

  • Standard USB headsets should work with the dialer webphone. We recommend using an echo-suppression-enabled headset for best results.

  • Our Quality Assurance team constantly tests our products to ensure that all features are supported by the minimum technical requirements detailed above. Other system configurations may work but are not formally supported or tested by Shape Software.
