Earlier EZConnect Versions – ACOM maintenance support
EDI payments are a vital part of your business operation. With this in mind, ACOM does not have an End-of-Life schedule for earlier versions of EZConnect 9 or 10. Although we do not discontinue maintenance provision, supporting multiple earlier versions involves a higher degree of complexity, requiring significantly more time and effort of our technical staff. As a result of this requirement, we will be increasing annual maintenance charges for EZConnect Versions 10.00 through 10.08 beginning in January, 2021. Support of the much earlier 9.x Version will be at a higher rate of increase in 2021.
