Pro Fund Accounting v. 7000 Available Now!

It seems we all have to make changes in life that seem strange and unfair. Cogitate’s development team has had to go back and change the way we do things in order to properly support Windows 8 and beyond. While we were learning the new way of doing things we added in a few extras.
We are pleased to announce the release of the next update to the Pro Fund Accounting package. “What is all the hoopla about?” you may be asking.

One of the many things that have changed is the output file management in Pro Fund Accounting – things like where the direct deposit file is located or where the state trunkline file is placed have all been reworked to add flexibility to the fund accounting software.
Another large change is the new Crystal Reports system which allows printing reports on the latest hardware.
We added a new installation and a program update monitoring system that automatically checks for updates.
This release also added support for photos of equipment, inventory, and personnel.
The Pro Fund Accounting software was updated to operate correctly on multiple monitors.
We added a program to export paystubs and email them to employees.
And last, but not least, we combined our voter registration software into the Pro Fund Accounting Municipal suite.

This release will come to you differently; a representative from Cogitate will contact you to schedule the update to Pro Fund Accounting, version 7000. If you have any questions or if you would like the update sooner, then you may contact George at 866-634-9991 (ext. 9) to be at the front of the line.

A major upgrade for UtilAbility is now available

Cogitate Incorporated, today announced the release of the next version of its premiere utility billing software, UtilAbility. Included in the update is the latest version of Cogitate’s Report Viewer which uses SAP’s Crystal Reports, and several other operating enhancements.

The printing problem was particularly knotty. “This was a tough one since we had to solve the Crystal Reports legal-sized printing issues,” remarked George Loescher, president of Cogitate. “Our customers had been reduced to having to export legal-sized reports to a PDF file and then printing them from there. This release of UtilAbility has uniquely solved that problem for them.”

UtilAbility operates on all versions of Microsoft Windows®, from XP up to and including Windows 8.
