Have you considered staying on Platinum for Windows (PFW)?
Unless your company operates in an industry where being on supported software is a legal requirement, there is no reason why you can't:
- Continue using PFW until you are ready to migrate to new software
- Keep using PFW indefinitely
We know that staying on PFW while "off-maintenance" is definitely an option because we've been working with a manufacturing company who are still running PFW 48a. That's over 10 years since the last service pack for PFW 48s was released.
However, there are two things a lot of companies rely on, which will no longer be available:
- Yearly 1099 updates
- Technical support
We have a solution for both of these issues.
We've been providing 1099 updates created with Crystal Reports to numerous clients who are 'off-maintenance'.
This method of printing tax forms using data in PFW proved so successful for one client, they had us go one step further and create a crystal report to print their 1096 forms.
What about technical support?
We've been providing clients who are 'off-maintenance' with technical support for the last ten years.
Support can be purchased on a per-incident basis.
Blocks of 5 and 10 support incidents can be purchased at a discount.
You will receive credit for support incidents that cannot be solved if the cause is deemed to be a bug in PFW.
Support is available via phone during office hours and via e-mail at any time.
