Customer Master is ready to assist in the Broadband Data Collection filing
MACC has prepared for and is ready to help with the new FCC requirements for Broadband reporting effective for the June 30, 2022 filing round. All facilities-based providers of fixed and mobile broadband internet access services must submit a biannual Broadband Data Collection (BDC) filing.
Capital Credit allocations can now appear on bills
Cost efficiency is on everyone’s mind. To help companies save money and time, the Capital Credit Allocation Notice can now be printed on Capital Credit Members’ bills as a Personal Bill Message. This enhancement eliminates the cost of separate Capital Credit Allocation mailings to active customers who are already receiving a monthly bill.
Using SQL Server 2012? Action on your part is needed
If your company is using SQL Server 2012, please know Microsoft will end extended support for this version of SQL Server on July 12, 2022, and it will be considered to have fully reached End-of-Life (EoL). With Microsoft no longer supporting this version, MACC will also be removing support in future releases of our products. We are committed to continue support for SQL Server 2012 through the end of the year. Beginning with the 23.1 release, Customer Master will no longer be compatible with SQL Server 2012.
To continue to receive updates to MACC’s products in 2023, you must upgrade your SQL Server to a Microsoft supported version.
