Windows XP is Retired


Now that Windows XP is being 'retired', many customers are enquiring about what systems they should be moving to.


WEB Subscription Service


In 2011 we started the work to get our software Web based. This is now complete. In this model you use any PC to connect over the Internet to our managed server platform which is hosted in Auckland. This option will work on any Windows, Android, Mac or Linux system be it 32 or 64 bit.


Our server based version is a subscription based model where you pay for us to manage your SoEasy package. This is the model that most software companies are moving to as it is easier for us to provide support and is also more convenient for you in that you can work from anywhere such as home or overseas.


PC Based Version


You can still run SoEasy on any version of Windows as long as it is the 32bit version of the operating system. 32 bit versions are available in both Windows 7 and Windows 8 but you must ask your pc vendor specifically to have the operating system installed on your New PC before you purchase it.


If you would like to upgrade to our web services please contact us.


Monitor Size


SoEasy is now being developed specifically for large monitors.

It is extreamly beneficial to specify a 24" Full HD monitor when purchasing your next PC.


In addition is is highly recommended to get 2 Full HD monitors set up for your new computer as this will increase your productivity by as much as 25%! (For every 4 days working on your PC you could easily save 1 whole day in improved productivity!)



New Modules


We have a large range of new modules being released which include:


  • Advanced Stock Management

  • Staff Log On Systems

  • Health and Safety components

  • Profitability by the minute management panels


Web based version is definitely the way to progress with your infrastructure. For more information please complete the following form.


It is important to note that XP is still a very good operating system and as long as you have a solid backup and recovery plan XP could last you for many years to come.


If you are considering an upgrade because of a speed issue, consider getting a SSD hard drive installed in your old PC. Usually improves performance by at least a factor of 5 and as an upgrade, may easily out perform the new operating systems.

Other Questions:


I cannot select where to save my bank's transaction file


The solution should be:


1. Open Google Chrome

2. Select the settings icon (top right star gear)

3. Select Settings

4. Scroll to bottom and select 'Show advanced settings'

5. Scroll down until you find Downloads

6. Set the 'Ask' option

7. All done


The settings frequently get changed by Google updates so if you find that you cannot select where to save files in future, you need to re-do this setting process.


Don't forget to save the file to C:\BANK and that the file is called soeasy.qif
