Specific customisable features for OEMs include:

* Custom splash screen that loads upon iFIX installation;

* Installation menu can also be customised to user requirements, adding or removing choices and launching additional CD content;

The iFIX CD has been organised to cleanly accept additional content, typically application files or user utilities, enabling simultaneous installation with the program.
