The Best Upgrade Path for VAM and SourceMate Users
AccountMate is such a reliable work horse, it’s no surprise there are businesses still running their older Visual AccountMate and they never have a problem with it. Until they do. Often it’s not a problem with VAM itself, but with the equipment it’s running on.
For example, when an old version of Windows is upgraded, it usually requires new hardware. Typically the first issue to arise is that VAM users suddenly can’t print anything – and it’s pretty important to be able to print from your accounting system!
Our roots go back decades to include old – <ahem> I mean “mature” – versions of AccountMate, then called Visual AccountMate, and even SourceMate from the big-hair MS-DOS days in the 80s.
Unfortunately, while we may still appreciate big hair, there does come a time to retire old software applications due to incompatibility with current hardware, scalability of holding decades of data, integration to external systems and requiring modern functionality. Nobody is issuing new product releases and features, bug fixes, security patches, or providing support for these discontinued products. VAM and SourceMate users can either remain on their current version, or migrate to new accounting software. The good news is that when you do migrate, you can move to a new system that has the same strengths that you value in your current system.
At NexLAN, we understand the process flow and data structures of old versions of AccountMate and can provide the cleanest upgrade path possible with the flexibility you’ve come to expect from your accounting system.
