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.
