Choosing the software to run your office is a critical decision. The major question is whether or not the chosen software architecture will be able to take you into the foreseeable future without limitations. This is exactly why a Sheriff SQL package is an absolute safe choice.

Sheriff SQL packages run natively under a Windows operating system. This makes them an extremely safe choice because we all know that Windows will not disappear.

Sheriff SQL packages use the immensely powerful MySQL Community Server from Oracle for data storage. This places no financial burden on sheriff's regarding legalities or payment of licensing fee's and royalties.

You'll need the following to run a Sheriff SQL package
  • Operating system
    • Windows 11
    • Windows 10
    • Windows 8.1
    • Windows 7 (service pack 1 required)
  • Computers (as many as required)
    • Desktop or laptop computer
    • A capable CPU such as Intel i3 or AMD Ryzen 3 (or better)
    • No less than 4GB installed memory
    • Sufficient internal storage free space (Hard Drive or SSD)
    • Graphics display capable of at least 1024 × 768 pixels display resolution supporting 16,777,215 colors
  • Other
    • A decent Internet connection
    • An external device for backup storage (Sheriff SQL Desktop only)
    • A TeamViewer installation
A reputation of which we are extremely proud...
Sheriff SQL Desktop
Old school desktop software. The app is installed on local computers. The database resides on one computer configured as a server. As many client machines as required connect to the database using standard networking protocols. Desktop software still has many advantages, especially for sheriffs. Because your office is never off line, even if there is no Internet connection, nothing prevents you from doing anything, so you can create that extremely important emergency return etc. You supply the required hardware and printers. We install and setup Sheriff SQL Desktop on each computer, and away you go.
Sheriff SQL Desktop includes our Website Manager software which will automatically activate if a website configuration is detected. This is an optional add on for those who want it. No additional software needs to be installed because it already exists in the executable program memory image.
Contains the refined and optimized features and functions requested by sheriffs spanning a period of more than three decades. Development is ongoing. We are always looking for ways to use new technology to make it faster and easier to use. We have always promised that our software will take you into the future, and we confirm that again.

Sheriff SQL Cloud
Do you have offices or staff in different towns? Maybe you want your staff to be able to work from home (or anywhere else) without having to purchase expensive 3rd party software licenses? If so then Sheriff SQL Cloud is what you need because this is exactly what it makes possible! It's a carbon copy of Sheriff SQL Desktop with one BIG difference - the data resides in the cloud on your VPS(Virtual Private Server). You may not be familiar with a VPS so let's fill you in. It's a powerful computer running an operating system like Windows Server 2016 Datacenter or Windows Server 2019 Datacenter, and your hire it on a monthly basis from a provider. A VPS is physically secure. It eliminates the risk of power issues, hardware failure and the possibility of theft. It comes with automated cloud backup, cyber security and disaster recovery tools. You can own a VPS for approximately R180 per month, so it's very cheap.
We assist you to get your VPS and we configure and set it up for you. We install the Sheriff SQL Cloud app on your desktop/laptop computers, create the required remote connections, and away you go. Now you can work from anywhere, anytime. You do not need third party software and licenses because you are talking to your very own VPS computer using an Internet connection. Nothing is limiting or monitoring you.
Sheriff SQL Cloud comes with Website Manager because a website is included with this package.
You will need your own Virtual Private Server and a fast, reliable, uncapped and unthrottled Internet connection. This is the primary requirement for acquiring and using Sheriff SQL Cloud.

What does Sheriff SQL cost?

Both packages use the same pay only for what you use technology, which means to pay per return created. This works on a sliding scale depending on the number of returns generated over a period of one month. An average size office doing about 700 returns per month would pay around R2 per return. The more returns you create, the less the rate per return. This fee covers installation, support, online training, software updates and sending unlimited emails from the system. Any office can easily afford to use Sheriff SQL, no matter how big or small.

Newly appointed sheriffs will get their first two months usage free of charge. This only applies to the package itself and not to Virtual Private Server costs (if applicable), which are not payable to us anyway.
