By Scott Calafiore - Posted 10/26/22 8:21 AM PT
Following a successful review of the Ventura beta, we are pleased to report we have not found any major compatibility issues in the current release, macOS Ventura, running Clients & Profits. The issues we observed were mostly minor cosmetic issues:
These issues are reported to our developement team. We hope to have them resolved soon. Beyond those, our first assessment shows no major compatibility issues for users that need to upgrade to macOS Ventura. As always, we caution that the new macOS is as just stated "brand new" and may contain undiscovered issues. We recommend taking time before upgrading. Please discuss any upgrades with your IT team.

First Review macOS Monterey Compatiblity
By Scott Calafiore - Posted 10/26/21 10:01 PM PT
We recommend waiting to upgrade to macOS "Monterey" until it's been evaluated for use with Clients & Profits Cloud. Please direct any questions to our helpdesk.
Update 11/2/21: After further evaluating macOS Monterey our team has found some graphical issues, not present with previous beta releases, when running Clients & Profits Cloud on the new macOS release. This includes a critical issue that can make the active field appear in all black, preventing the user from seeing what they have typed. Our team is working with our development software to resolve these issues. At this time we do NOT recommend running Clients & Profits on macOS Monterey.

Clients & Profits 11.3 Recommended Upgrade
By Scott Calafiore - Posted 8/19/20 1:36 PM PT
Clients &Profits 11.3 was released early this year to address compatibility with the latest macOS Catalina. Due to the pandemic, many of our users and people across the world have been working remotely without the help of any IT infrastructure. In considering the needs of our users, we have decided to keep Clients &Profits 11.3 as a "soft release" (optional). Although, we do strongly recommend users upgrade to our latest version as soon as possible to keep up with the latest updates. We do not have a date yet as to when the 11.3 will be a required update, but we want to be clear this will happen eventually.
*As a reminder, there will be no updates to Clients &Profits X to address compatibility with Catalina. Any one still using Clients &Profits X that needs future macOS compatibility should contact our sales team at 1-800-272-4488 or through our website.

Shelter in Place Order California COVID19
By Scott Calafiore - Posted 3/20/20 07:59 AM PDT
As many of you already know the State of California has issued a shelter in place order for people living in the state. Our offices are in Oceanside, California. How does this affect our services? In light of recent events, we’ve been preparing for the last month to move all employees to work remotely. Many of our employees have been working remote for the past couple of weeks. As of today, our Help Desk and Sales team will be fully remote. This was already planned, prepared and tested before the order so we expect a fairly smooth transition. Please understand there may be some small delays with calls and the actual sound may be less than normal as many of these employees will be using their home internet to speak with you. If at all possible please email our Help Desk or Sales teams. We appreciate your cooperation during this time. In the meantime we’ll still do everything we can to answer your questions as soon as possible. Be safe out there!
