Enterprise solutions are available for larger, growing companies, or those with custom needs. These include Networking options, Franchisor Opportunities, and various SDKs for developers.
For larger firms, we recommend the Premier edition of 3D Inspection System software, which also interfaces with mainstream products like QuickBooks Pro to streamline data flow. Other companies, such as Inspection Support Network and Schedule Center, have also created interfaces to work along with 3D Inspection System software.
We recommend the top-of-the-line 3D Inspection System Premier edition for networking multiple computers together, so you will have the added flexibility you need. Here is general information and instructions about networking: http://www.3dinspection.com/news/pdf-whats-new/NETWORKING12.pdf

Office Management Import / Export
API information is available for programmers to import or export job information to or from an outside application into version 12 using database models and universal controllers that can interface with BOTH local and cloud-stored versions of the 3D database, while maintaining complete control over one's own interface coding. Note: The .dlls referenced in the API information are located in the 3D Inspection System .exe folder location. Interfacing and testing may also be done using an evaluation copy of the software (use Try Now link on website to request a free evaluation program).

Distribute custom forms or content to others
Savvy 3D Inspection System software users who wish to develop add-on content (including forms, documents, actions) to sell or provide to other users may use the Focus Deployment Wizard to collect and distribute such data: http://www.3dinspection.com/about/focus-content-development-information.html
For distribution without a focus product one may simply distribute the resulting forms.zip to another end user, who in turn may use File > Install reseller content to select the file to add any data items not already present, and then close and reopen 3D. Forms or documents with the same names are not overwritten in case the user has already customized similar items.
Optionally if one merely wants to distribute custom forms to another user, that information can be found here: http://www.3dinspection.com/Tips-and-Tricks/how-to-easily-transfer-a-specific-form-group-to-a-new-computer.html
