You are advised to upgrade as the new version has improved ease of use, and a number of problems are also resolved. In addition this is now the only release which will be supported. Even if you were one of our beta testers for this release, you probably don’t have all the latest features, fixes and help and therefore this latest version is worth installing so you are right up to date.

Hints and Tips:

  1. The most comon cause for problems has been the rates editing. This is completely rewritten and early feedback indicates that this is significantly easier to use.
  2. Listed in the FAQ (frequently asked questions) page are any other queries that come in that I think may be of general interest. So you may want to bookmark this page, and look at it from time to time. See Recent additions to the FAQ files explain why there are 53 weeks in some years and how week numbers are allocated.
  3. Don’t forget to backup your data from time to time. There is an item in the Help Topics (under Contents/Overview/Data Security) on this topic.

Help please!

Selling a system targeted at a niche (and small) market at a low price is not easy. If you like this system (and some of you certainly do judging by the comments) then please do tell others you know who also manage holiday cottages. Thanks especially to those who have recommended this system to others; through that and search engines we continue to get a slow but steady stream of sales.

Comments please!

I hope the system is proving valuable. Your views are always welcome.

Best wishes to all users.
