Milliman Actuarial Retirement Calculator™ (MARC 5™), the current version of MARC, can accommodate several different types of clients and installations. The system can be installed on a standalone client computer, a client server with or without Internet connection, or can be partially or fully hosted by Milliman. All systems are available with or without plan sponsor web access.
MARC's technical requirements for system, software, and reporting are as follows:

MARC requires Microsoft SQL Server software; SQL Server Standard, Enterprise, or Express editions can be used with MARC. For shared installations, we recommend SQL Server Standard or Enterprise edition installed on dedicated server hardware and the Express edition for standalone and test installations of MARC.
A report-writing software package is required if you wish to create customized reports using MARC's database. MARC supports Crystal Reports®.
