V5 Late Adopter Upgrade Program

Version Relevance: V5

Issue: We would like to Upgrade to Version 5.

Background: Caliach Vision V5, first installed on-site in March 2015, is now smoothly operating in 18 sites worldwide, as of May 2017. These early adopters have cooperated magnificently with Caliach to prove the significant advantages of the new technology adopted and bed it down to stability. Their cooperation has been in part compensated through an unstated subsidy. The early adopter upgrade program is over, as of May 2017.

May 22nd, 2017

Feedback: During the two years of early adoption upgrades we have obtained much experience of best practice and consequently developed a standard model for further upgrades.

Henceforth, upgrading sites to V5 will take place in two stages by potentially two different teams.

Stage 1 will be offsite and invariably performed by Caliach. This involves a test migration of the data, conversion of customization, tool adjustment and data test so that the stage 2 team are fully prepared for the onsite work so it can be reasonably expected to be achieved with the minimum of business interruption.

Stage 2 is on-site and involves the server and client installations, live data migration, normalization, customization testing, introductory training and further consultancy and training as needed. It maybe appropriate for some larger sites to apply a team of skills to this, in which case we will offer a package of staff for the project.

The gap between stage 1 and 2 should be no more than a couple of weeks. Although separate stages with potentially separate teams, they must be viewed practically and commercially as one project.

There is a new pricing structure for these future upgrades to accommodate these new circumstances.

Quotation

To obtain a quotation we need the following from you:

  1. For each datafile set you use, operate File -- System Manager -- System Timing Test, then Print Report to Acrobat PDF. Send us this document.
  2. Send us your latest ProgCode.usa file that is located in the same folder as your datafile set.
  3. Go to File -- System Manager -- Privileges and Settings, then choose the System tab pane. Click on the bottom left Backup to Text File button, name it in a convenient location and then send us this file.
  4. Let us know that you only use the datafile sets in 1 above. Some businesses hold old backups that occasionaly they refer to for historical reasons. If this is the case with you, we need to know in advance so that we can plan to also upgrade these data sets.
