No-longer-supported legacy payment software may pose problems when upgrading to new hardware and operating system, ACOM says.
Companies in the IBM i (System i / iSeries) community that depend on aging forms and payment software solutions may face compliance issues when implementing the latest hardware platforms and operating system because legacy systems are no longer supported. In response, ACOM Solutions, Inc. is offering $2,000 in competitive replacement credits on purchases of its payment and electronic document solutions, EZPayManager/400 and EZeDocs/400, James R. Scott, ACOM senior vice president announced today. The promotion extends through the end of the year.
“Certain IBM i forms and payment solutions that have been on the market for years are no longer being enhanced or supported,” Scott said. “They may have been perfectly satisfactory in the past, but are now reaching the point of obsolescence. We hope that in seeking the required replacements, IBM i users will seriously consider ACOM’s EZPayManager/400 and EZeDocs/400 solutions, which have been continuously enhanced for some 20 years and to which we have an absolute long-term commitment for providing ongoing upgrade and support.”
Hardware systems are getting less expensive, Scott noted, and while operating systems continue to offer more speed, performance and flexibility, they often create problems of compatibility with software programs that lag in performance and compatibility.
“Older software solutions may work fine in their current environment, but their users need to keep pace with emerging technology or be left behind,” he said. “ACOM has a broad footprint in the IBM i universe and has pledged always to remain compliant with its evolving hardware and operating environment. We urge IBM i users to take advantage of this generous promotion to keep their vital payment and forms operations compliant with their upgrades or alternatively, to act now to assure that when they do upgrade their platforms, they’ll experience no roadblocks in making the transition.”
