    I'm doing some work for a security company that monitors alarm systems. They are currently using an ancient piece of software that tracks false alarms.

    Basically, ever time there is a false alarm it is entered into the system, each one is entered manually so it doesn't have to interface with another piece of software or anything. When the person gets their 3rd false alarm the software automatically flags the person and spits out a $35 invoice so it can be sent to the person. Every false alarm after that the system generates another $35 invoice and tracks the persons balance as well. Then on January 1 the number of false alarms are reset to 0 and the process starts over, but obviously their balance is kept if they haven't paid it.

    I'm looking to replace this old program with something that will actually run in Windows 7/8, right now they have to use XPMode to run it and it barely runs under that.

    Anyone know of anything free of paid that could do this?

    Yes, fully automated after the person enters each false alarm.

    Every security monitoring company have their own devices and way to programmed that devices.So its hard to help you until you explain all the details for that.Because some software that we prepared are for specific devices.
