PERFORCE is the Fast Software Configuration Management (SCM) System, providing all the features of leading-edge SCM, geared for high performance. PERFORCE is built upon a true client/server architecture that doesn't rely on network file access, and works quickly from initial deployment through to active use and administration. Moreover, PERFORCE stores and presents information about the user's workspace in ways that streamline the user interface, making it extremely easy to use. The usability of PERFORCE is not at the expense of function: with atomic change transactions, flexible client views, and a powerful branching model, the PERFORCE system provides a comprehensive SCM environment.

  • Distributed -- fully effective over LAN or WAN
  • Heterogeneous -- seamlessly inter-operable across all environments
  • Usable -- functional out-of-the-box; minimal administration
