News-Events

Voyager logoSince Yardi launched its latest version of Voyager™ over a year ago, it has either upgraded existing users or deployed new installations at a number approaching 2,000. Although Voyager™ has always been web native, 7S represents a transition for Yardi. Yardi has gone from being primarily an application service provider and shifting its focus to Software as a Service model—i.e., SaaS, hence, Voyager 7S™.

handshakeSage has entered into a partnership with Salesforce in an effort to maintain its competitive place in the mid-market ERP environment. In recent years Sage’s numbers have slipped in the advent of cloud based financial solutions in the likes of Netsuite, FinancialForce, Intacct, and Xero. In a press release to partners, Sage states their plans to adopt Salesforce CRM and collaboration tools for internal use as well as leverage the Salesforce 1 platform to broaden their capability in delivering cloud solutions to the small and mid-market.

internet-open-The FCC voted by a margin of 3-2 to adopt net neutrality. The vote will require broadband internet to be reclassified as a public utility in the similar manner telecommunications is regulated. In essence, the principle of net neutrality is internet service providers (ISPs) such as Comcast, Charter, Verizon, Century Link, ATT, etc., cannot dictate the flow of internet traffic.

Sage Intelligence logoComing this week on February 3rd, Sage Is set to release the latest version of Sage Enterprise Intelligence—version 7.0. Sage Enterprise Intelligence integrates with Sage 300 ERP, Sage 500 ERP and Sage ERP X3.

sage logoIt was just a year ago that Sage casually introduced mobile service to its suite of mobile apps. Sage Mobile Service joined Sage Mobile Sales and Sage Billing & Payment in a push to bring customers to the cloud through connected services. Last week Sage unceremoniously announced the retirement of Sage Mobile Service effective immediately.  Sage stated they will provide support to current subscribers until May 31st. 

fog computingMost business large or small running a legitimate network infrastructure is all too familiar with Cisco routers and switches. In January of last year, Cisco introduced a new platform (IOXE) and approach to computing they have coined “fog computing”, the idea of bringing cloud computing capabilities—from applications and data analytics to processing, networking and storage—to the edge of the network, closer to the rapidly growing number of user devices that are consuming cloud services and generating the increasingly massive amount of data.

Affordable ImageThis year Yardi applied new HUD regulations to the affordable module. These new features were first presented at Yardi's Spring conference in DC. New affordable provisions were annoucned in 2012, however, the incorporation of the new guidelines had been delayed due to the final review process being condutced by the Office of Management and Budget.

For each Sage 100 ERP company, it is important that the “Retain Perpetual History” option is activated in order to meet 2015 Affordable Care Act (ACA) reporting requirements. This feature ensures that you will be collecting the proper data as they process their first payroll in 2015.

The Retain Perpetual History option is found in Payroll Setup Options, screen shot below. Additional details will be provided in early December.

30 Years of Rave Reviews

I cannot thank you enough for your help this evening. You have proven that your services are much more valuable than we ever expected - when you guys told me your hourly rate, I thought "no way can we afford that"! lol .... We are small and we do all we can to keep costs down, as I'm sure you…

We are very happy to have your company in place. Joel and Tony have been excellent. The Senior Management Team feels as though a great weight has been lifted from their shoulders and we are appreciative that our systems and software are in the hands of experts.

Since our bank told us we need to become PCI compliant, we found lots of holes and “open doors” on our servers, hosting, website etc. Chris closed up them and Tim has helped with the all the other annoying daily problems we have had, and they both do it with a smile and a reassuring, calming tone…

We are impressed with response times and the general aptitude of your support group. This stands in stark contrast to some of the experiences with other IT resources we’ve patronized in the past.

At a time when it may seem like good customer service is at all time low and we hear so many negatives about many companies and their employees, it’s a pleasure to be able to send along our positive comments regarding Nims & Associates … and more specifically about Chris. Chris has worked our…

Bill has far exceeded my expectations. I am happy to have another Super Technician to rely on for MAS200.

We’re getting rave reviews on the new e-newsletter. I just want to let you know how grateful we all are for your help on this project—your great direction, patience and support are invaluable.

We would NEVER have gone this far without you!

As someone who works remotely from a home office, connectivity and a reliable, functioning computer are absolutely critical to my ability to be able to perform. Recently my computer "crashed" and as you can imagine created great inconvenience. Your team of Joel, Tessa and Tim responded immediately.…

We are very satisfied with the professional demeanor of both Tessa and Michael and their willingness to go above and beyond the scope of their expectations to solve our computer-related issues. The immediate and personal attention we receive from Nims when our Firm has an IT issue is impressive, to…

I worked with Nims when at another company ... you don't have to tell me what a fantastic company Nims is.

We have been a client of Nims & Associates for over ten years. Chris has implemented and maintained our network for all of those years. As our network and our needs have changed and grown, Chris has provided excellent support to move us forward. Over the years I have come to know several of the…

Nims and Associates are the best support company I have ever worked with. They get back to my every problem or question in record time. They have been able to help or fix every problem I have come up with. Bill and or Bob are very knowledgeable with all my MASS 200 problems. I would and have…

I’ve sent more than one shining Michael endorsement. The whole company kicks ass.

Since we switched hosts to Network Solutions, we've had nothing but continuous problems with email and sessions timing out preventing us from opening our online store. Joel went out of his way to solve our problem. This means the world to us. Joel listened and accommodated our needs first before…

I have been extremely happy with your service. Michael is truly devoted to his clients and has been great about working with our current vendor to get our issues resolved. The MXLogic transition was seamless. Our users barely noticed the change, which is always a plus.
