Before you can use the SimpleEPT, you must login in to the system first. The functions you have depend on the roles you have in the system. So you may see different navigation menu in the left side when you login with different id.

Login the system

Open your favorite browser (IE, or Firefox or Chrome etc), type the following url in the address bar:

You will see the login dialog, as follows:
