We are expecting a release in November 2017 and you need to check that you have procedures in place;
  • Does HHA and IMS have your correct email address?
    • Remember all updates are via the registered email address with IMS Limited
  • When you down load an upgrade have you saved this to your PC/Server?
    • Not only do you need to upgrade your software, but it is important to save a copy onto your PC/Server as the download link will expire.  You will also need it for any other PCs in your network or for new PCs in the future.
  • What is your procedure when you upgrade your PC/Server?
    • Do you know where your payroll software is kept if you need to update your PC/Server due a crash or timely upgrade?
We can help-680Suggested file structure: IMS Upgrades\IMS 6.20 and for those with Time import this is a separate download to the payroll software so you will need a file structure along the same lines.  

It is always a good policy to have two PCs in your network set up with payroll.

Remember you can contact the Payroll Team to assist.
