Does anyone use the appraisal software distributed by Polaroid? In Canada, I believe it is generally the accepted software, however they have had some financial difficulties. Just wondering if they make a US version, in Canada the programis called CSA Picture Pro, Track Pro etc... Thanks

It's called ACI here. I use it and tend to really like it have tried other software but find this is the one that I like the best.

You can call poloroid digital solutions at 1-800-234-8727 and ask them if it is their software.

Polaroid, currently, owns 2 softwares. In the states, they are known as ACI and MCS. Call 800-234-8727 and talk to Scott Parks at extension 211.

Polaroid is not having financial problems. They are bankrupt. :lol:

By the way, the appraisal software section of Polaroid may be being sold to a Canadian company.

Last I heard was Polaroid (ACI-etc) has been bought and is in fine shape, it was the only portion that was showing a profit and has been added to another source & I can't remember :? Next time I'm in their products area, will check it out.

By the By, switched about 6 months back and am totally satisfied; keep learning new aspects of their program, pretty soon I hope to be able to just call in & tell it what to do. Have almost completed setting up everything :lol:

The company name that is trying to buy PDSI(ACI and MCS) is called Appareo. However, ala mode is protesting the sale and as far as I know, the deal is on hold and will not close until all issues are resolved.

Is ala mode looking to buy all of the software section or just the appraisal side?

Best to ask ala mode on that as I don't know. However, the press release was printed on this forum, as well as others, a couple of weeks back.
