Top 3 Reasons to keep your Macola ERP Software Updated

business financial management software

There’s no pesky pop-up message regarding your Macola system telling you it’s time to update your software, like you have with iTunes or JavaScript. And even when you do have an annoying request to update software, we more often than not click the ‘Remind me later’ button. Updates take time, and though you can continue to work on your computer, the system tends to be much slower as it’s updating. So we procrastinate. Before you know it, it’s been years since you’ve updated your software.

When you leave your Macola Progression, Macola ES, or Synergy ESE out of date, then you’re running your business on a limping software system. Find out the top three reasons to update your system now, and see all the release notes from Exact on updates on systems from as far back as 2011.

Security Vulnerabilities

Software updates keep you safe from known security holes. This is especially important when there is a new release available for software you use, because most change logs and update notes reveal previously-known exploits that have already been patched. Public knowledge of these exploits leaves your application easy prey for malicious users who are out to exploit these now known issues. Not securing these by updating leaves your system open to compromise making your software vulnerable.

Better Functionality

Updating your software will frequently provide features and speed enhancements, such as for SSRS reports and Crystal Reports, shop floor controls and other functionality that can help your business function more efficiently.

Squashing Bugs

Way back when, when Progress, ES and Synergy were new they were at the highest functionality available. As more of the software users begin providing feedback and through the continuation of development of the software, bugs start to appear. This is where updates come into play, to fix the bugs and provide more efficient software.
