The release of Windows 10 is upon us and many of you may be considering taking advantage of Microsoft’s offer to upgrade to the new operating system for free. As your trusted advisor, we would recommend that you do not upgrade to Windows 10 until the appropriate research has been done to ensure all your existing applications and peripherals (printers, scanners, etc.) have been confirmed to work with the new operating system. Failure to do so can cause unexpected costs in replacing hardware and software in order to get them to work with Windows 10.
A great example of this was uncovered by our Computer Solutions business unit. They researched and found that Intuit has released a document stating the only version of QuickBooks they recommend running on Windows 10 is QuickBooks 2015. This means if you upgrade to Windows 10, your QuickBooks accounting software may no longer function properly unless you are running the most current version.
As our Computer Solutions business unit continues to research software for our clients, it appears that many other vendors are taking the same stance. Therefore, let’s not rush into an upgrade. You have plenty of time to take advantage of this offer, as it is valid until July 29, 2016. Questions? Call us at 215-723-4881 or contact us online.
