  • Attention: Emergency Support Email Users

    When contacting emergency support, you may opt to send email to emergency@advantagecs.com in addition to calling.  Please be aware that the emergency Support Inbox will only accept mail from domains on our Safe Sender list.  We've done this because spam was triggering too many unnecessary calls to the emergency support people.  All of our client domains are on this list, so please be sure and send your email from your company account.  If you would like to request another domain name to be added to the list, please contact Ev Acton at eacto@advantagecs.com .

  • Using CDSCMP/OFF

    When maintaining office records in Advantage, CDSCMP/OFF creates a new version of the office each time it is added or changed.  Older versions have a status of  "O".  You also use CDSCMP/OFF to define the jurisdictions in which a business unit is subject to tax. You identify states, provinces, or countries where a business unit is taxable at the second and third tabs of the Office Maintenance dialog box at CDSCMP/OFF. Be careful when maintaining your office setup, however, because deleting an obsolete version of an office record will also delete all corresponding taxation setup.

  • Bob Gray: Voice of Experience

    Bob Gray has the distinction of having more years of seniority at ACS than the company has been in business.  That's because Bob was working at one of the firms that merged to become T & B Computing (the original name of ACS) and was allowed to count his years of service there when T & B Computing was formed.  In his 30+ years here, Bob has witnessed remarkable changes in operating systems, programming languages and software technology.  When he first began his career in computing, he programmed in Fortran for a mainframe computer, even using card decks on occasion, and had to debug using core dumps (or hex dumps).  Access to the computer was through shared terminals in a terminal room, where they were connected via phone modems …
