The September 2014 release notes are available for download at http://samco.com/support/release-notes/
Please take the time to read them, there are several changes that affect the operation of your accounting software.
Samco Power Accounting, as of version 14.07, has enhanced user access management features.
- For example: Passwords are now required to meet a high level of security and must be changed more frequently.
- There are groups: Normal, Supervisor and Administrator
- Passwords are also no longer visible in plain text. The administrator can reset any users password if forgotten so it is no longer necessary to recover forgotten passwords, just reset it!
- Users may change their own passwords.
After over 23 years of working with Samco, as our Lead Trainer and Support Tech, Anne-Marie Cain has permanently left us, due to an ongoing battle with Cancer. She will be greatly missed by everyone at Samco as well as the many clients she has trained and supported over the years. We wish Anne-Marie all the best for a full recovery and a wonderful retirement.
Samco has and will continue to make steps to replace Anne-Marie. While this will not be an easy task, Samco will continue to provide the best service possible during this period of restructuring existing staff and hiring of new staff.
Since we have published Samco Power Accounting user manuals online, we have seen a reduction in support calls! This means that you are saving money and learning how to work smarter! Keep up the good work! Interested in reading the user manuals? Follow this link.
