News-Events

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.

Icon of houseYardi Genesis2™ is now officially availble for purhcase. Yardi's latest incarnation of Genesis is being made exclusively available as Software as a Service to small and mid-sized companies. Genesis2 was built in-house on the Voyager platform but with a scaled down easy to use interface without all the big company comlexities and cost.

Just like the original Genesis, Yardi Genesis2 is equipped with a powerful set of core financials, strong security, dashboards, improved analytics and reporting, maintenance and work orders, automated and resident workflows and more. Genesis2 supports the following portfolio types: multiufamily, condo and commerical. Unlike its predecessor with Genesis2 you have the option to integrate it with a number of the same connected services available to Voyager. These services include Rent Cafe, Yardi Resident Screening, Yardi Payment Prcoessing, and Yardi CHECK scan. For a free preview of Genesis2 visit Yardi's Website for a schedule of times.

sage-summit-logoMembers of our Sage ERP practice recently returned from Sage Summit in Las Vegas. This marked the biggest Sage event in North America on record with over 5,000 in attendance. The news coming from Sage Summit included new features expected in the 2015 version of Sage 100 ERP, the status of Sage 500 ERP, the continuing evolution of Sage ERP X3 and development of Sage Intelligence. (The latter will be the subject of a separate article.)

Can I tell you how we feel about Chris? He is the greatest. He goes way beyond the norm. We can't ask for better service and support. Chris has taken the time to teach me additional things to not only help him but us here which cuts the time we need him here to fix something I can do. Not many…

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 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.

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’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!

We are so pleased with the installation of our Shoretel system. The phones work great and James was able to customize the system to suit our somewhat unusual need of combine live person answering and automation. Both the phones and the software are user friendly and required little training. James…

....and, thank you for all YOU do. We are able to actually breathe easier knowing you're taking care of people. We have trusted you from the get-go because of your high intelligence, your ease at taking in and integrating huge amounts of new knowledge, and your grace and calmness in taking care of…

We are very impressed with josh…he seems very knowledgeable and he communicates well…and he just seems like a nice person also…basically our dream consultant….

Again, we’re really impressed with josh and would not hesitate to recommend Nims to anyone.

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

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

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.…

Our Yardi conversion was challenging. Hiring Nims and in turn working with Marco was the smartest thing we did to assist in this transition. His contribution was priceless. My staff and Board both agree it would have been a nightmare without Nims (Marco).

I was going to say it was the smartest…
