Doesn't ACI usually send updates in the mail? If so. I have not received 8.5 yet, is it out?

Amanda:

I have been using V8.5 since April of this year. The installation instruction sheet that came with the CD has a 2/26/03 date on it. The case the CD came in has a 4/03/03 date on the paper label that is part of the case.

Give ACI a call and inquire regarding your situation.

Well, I phoned ACI and was told that it had already been shipped out and they would certainly put a copy in the mail for our office. They said they had no idea how we could have been missed. This is funny since we have had to call them for every update our office has ever heard about.

I had to jump up and down to get 8.5 as well..
Now there are new VC sheets and there's ACI bringing up the rear again! And with such a loyal client base..

Really.. I'd change in a minute if someone else would make the decision about who, how, and when to do the conversion and all I had to do was go back to writing reports with no learning curve.. I guess I'm not loyal, I'm a captive!

What are we paying the yearly subscription for if we have to discover the existance of an upgrade, patch, what have you, and then nag them unit it shows up..then find out what patches the patch requires.. Love to hate them! :eyecrazy:

So, I almost forgot about having called them until I saw your post. It just made me realize we never got that package that they were going to put in the mail "right away". Guess they're due for another phone call. :angry:

I learn more about ACI updates on this forum than I do from the company. Luckily, I downloaded the VC sheets directly from HUD and can use them in Word format until ACI gets its act together. I too, have never received an update from them unless I contacted them. Great program, lousy service.
