Overview

Orion Outcomes prefers using the Internet to send benchmarking data to Orion Software Development. For various reasons, some user’s computers do not have Internet access.  While Orion Outcomes does allow users to export benchmarking data onto floppy disks, a method that enabled Internet transfer for computers not directly connected to the Internet was developed.  Orion Outcomes Slingshot allows users to transfer benchmarking data via the Internet from any Internet-connected computer.
