Where Do New Features Come From?

  If you're (smartly!) on board with AccountMate's Lifecycle Software Assurance Plan, then you've certainly been getting your money's worth with access to training resources and regular product updates - but where do the ideas for all those new features come from?
Certainly, the AccountMate product development staff is always coming up with ways to improve the product, and as a Business Partner in the channel we contribute dozens of suggestions per year - usually based on client customization requests - but MANY enhancement request come directly from end-users such as yourself.
Direct client requests are reviewed right alongside the other flavors of enhancement requests, and I'm not aware of ANY software publisher that makes it so easy for you to submit them. 
How easy? Inside your AccountMate software, just hit <Help> then look about halfway down the list of options for <Enhancement Request>. Clicking that will take you to the AccountMate website where you can enter the details of your suggestion, including the benefits it will provide.
I encourage you take this opportunity to help direct the future of the product - because who knows what you need better than you? - and there's no limit to the number of enhancement requests you can make!


 1 Year Remaining for Support on AM 8 for SQL/Express
AccountMate's policy of at least providing eight years of support under our Maintenance Plans (4 years of Regular Support + 4 years of Extended Support) gives tremendous value for clients remaining on a consistent maintenance program.
In about a year (7/31/18), support will end for AccountMate 8.x for SQL/Express. Tax Subscription coverage will end 12/31/18.
This 'friendly' reminder is meant to give you time to talk with me to begin thinking about upgrading to a supported product version. Keeping clients on consistent Version and Build Maintenance assures they are covering their software investment. 

If you have any questions regarding training please call us today at
                                                  916-334-1858 .
