We wanted to make you aware of several reasons why you need to take a serious look at an Opera 3 upgrade;
1) You are running your business on software that’s now almost 17 years old
Opera II was released in June 2000. It’s already had a fantastic shelf life compared to other software products around but think of all the changes to technology since 2000 with the introduction of smartphones etc.
Pegasus announced two years ago that Opera II is in extended support, so an end of life announcement is approaching.
2) The upgrade price is going up
Pegasus have announced that the upgrade price will increase annually from this point on. The sooner you move, the more money you will save.
3) No software development in Opera II
Pegasus will make no further enhancements to Opera II. Only legislative changes & maintenance fixes will be incorporated. All development streams are now focussed on Opera 3. By moving to Opera 3, not only will you benefit from additional features, designed to save time and increase productivity, but you will also take advantage of the latest technology deployed within Opera 3.
Staying on Opera II means that you are missing out on all the new exclusive integrated features like the Scheduler, server-side processing, error correction in the Financials, Credit Management Centre, Timesheets and Web Exchange.
5) Pegasus Mobile Sales - Exclusive to Opera 3
If you have a sales team on the road, Pegasus Mobile Sales will be an invaluable tool for them to take sales orders on their mobile devices. The sales person can showcase products to the customer, take the order and send it securely back to the office to be authorised and uploaded directly into Pegasus Opera 3. The app is exclusively available to Opera 3 users and you can find out more here.
4) Your AMC increases year on year
To keep up with supporting two systems at the same time, Pegasus now increases the Opera II AMC charge annually, in line with inflation. In some case the AMC is actually cheaper on Opera 3.
5) Take it to the Cloud
If your business demands it, why not take your software into the cloud? Pegasus Business Cloud gives you complete flexibility and enables you to access the solution at the office or on mobile devices – anytime, anywhere. You can upgrade to Pegasus Business Cloud seamlessly from Opera II.
6) Pegasus Support +
Our new premium add on is exclusive to Opera 3 users. This includes access to a whole host of utilities and enhancements we have developed in house that some Pegasus Opera customers have been requesting for years.
