Firstlogic Solutions Announces Software Maintenance Credit Program (MCP) for Postalsoft DQ 8.0 End-of-Life Customers.

SAP Postalsoft® DQ 8.0 Customers Receive Full Credit for Remaining Software Maintenance with Annual Subscription to Firstlogic® DQ 9.0 Postalsoft platform.  

Duluth, GA – SAP Postalsoft DQ 8.0 customers will receive full credit for the remaining months on any current SAP Postalsoft DQ 8.0 software maintenance agreement with the purchase of an Annual Subscription to Firstlogic DQ 9.0.  The Maintenance Credit Program (MCP) allows customers to upgrade from Postalsoft DQ 8.0 to Firstlogic DQ 9.0 on their own schedule anytime between now and the Postalsoft DQ 8.0 End-of-Life (EOL) on March 31, 2015.  Firstlogic® DQ 9.0 includes the ACE®, DataRight IQ® and Match/Consolidate® applications.

“If customers would like to stay with the familiar set of Postalsoft® DQ applications with the same functionality running on the same operating system platforms, we recommend a simple upgrade to the Firstlogic® DQ 9.0 Postalsoft platform,” said Dave Dobson, Director of Solutions Development at Firstlogic Solutions.  “Firstlogic DQ 9.0 includes DataRight IQ®, Match/Consolidate® and ACE® which is powered by the CASS™ and NCOALink® certified SAP DQM platform.  This option ensures a smooth transition from version 8.0 to 9.0 leveraging the same time-tested address cleansing engine,” says Dobson.

“The Firstlogic DQ 9.0 on-premise platform is also available and fully supported on the proven Windows®, Linux®, AIX® and Solaris® operating systems.  This means that customers can remain on their existing hardware and software infrastructure without disruption.  And the upgrade from Postalsoft® DQ 8.0 to Firstlogic® DQ 9.0 is the same simple process used for years,” said Jeff Hay, Director of Solutions Support at Firstlogic Solutions.  “Customers simply run their Postalsoft ACE Job-Files through the Edjob utility to upgrade to Firstlogic ACE Job-Files with no need to change any scripts or business processes and no need to learn any new tools to get the same accurate address results that customers have always received from ACE.  And customer’s DataRight IQ and Match/Consolidate Job-Files require no changes at all… just run them as-is and receive support and assistance from our experienced team of experts,” says Hay.  

The Firstlogic DQ 9.0 Postalsoft platform is the result of a co-innovation agreement between SAP and Firstlogic Solutions. The agreement extends the development and support of the SAP Postalsoft DQ 8.0 software, ensuring the future roadmap for the platform.  Longstanding SAP Postalsoft DQ customers will continue to enjoy timely USPS® CASS™ cycle and NCOALink® updates, feature enhancements and direct support for the platform long into the future. The ACE, DataRight IQ and Match/Consolidate platform has been providing industry leading address cleansing, data cleansing, data enhancement, data matching and data consolidation to thousands of customers for over 30 years. Today, the platform maintains a large and dedicated customer base leveraging the power and accuracy of the trusted architecture. 

“We’re excited to offer current customers full credit for their existing software maintenance agreements.  This option will allow customers to upgrade based on their own schedule and not be dictated by an agreement date,” said Ken Kucera, Managing Principal at Firstlogic Solutions. “We’re pleased to offer customers a simple and cost effective annual software subscription for Firstlogic DQ 9.0 enabling customers to move from their current software license and maintenance support agreements,” says Kucera.
