If you see the screen below when accessing Operate, then your browser is not supported and we would recommend to upgrade to one of the browsers below.

Please note that you can use Operate with Internet Explorer; however, essensys no longer provides support for issues that are specific to this browser.

For best results we recommend that you use chrome as your internet browser when using Operate, its easy to set this as your default browser, just follow the steps here -
