End of Red Wing Windows Payroll Migration

Red Wing Windows Payroll Users: This is your reminder that migration services will end on April 30, 2024. If you move to CenterPoint Payroll and have your data migrated before April 30, 2024, Red Wing Software can assist you in the process. It also means that migration pricing, which is heavily discounted, will still be available before April 30, 2024, and will expire after that date.
Having your data migrated offers great benefits to your business – benefits you will not find outside of Red Wing Software and CenterPoint Payroll, including the ability to offer electronic pay advices and an online time clock to your employees, as well as having all your employee information at your fingertips, rather than starting over from scratch.
If you’ve considered moving to CenterPoint Payroll, now is the time to make the move. Contact Red Wing Software today to learn about moving to CenterPoint Payroll at sales@redwingsoftware.com or call 800‑732‑9464.

Notes from President

Ken Hilton - President Red Wing Software

Recently, the company that provides our hosting service for using CenterPoint in the cloud implemented Multi-Factor-Authentication (MFA). MFA provides an additional level of security for accessing information stored outside the walls of your operation.
In some cases, the website you are accessing requires this authentication every time you log in to your account. In the case of Red Wing® Cloud Services (CenterPoint in the cloud), this authorization will occur each month when you log in for the first time at each unique location. People that use Cloud Services will receive an email with a code that must be entered to gain access to their program.
When websites I use started requiring this new level of security, I became somewhat frustrated with the process. Now that many websites require authentication, I feel more comfortable with it, and I am changing some of my logins to require MFA when I access my accounts on their websites.
There are far too many bad actors trying to access personal information for me not to be as careful as possible.

Notes from the President

Ken Hilton - President Red Wing Software

While thinking about a subject for this month’s message, a friend stepped into my office and said I should write an article about AI. I’m sure he meant Artificial Intelligence, but since it seems everyone is writing about that, and I’m certainly no expert on it, I thought a better topic might be Accounting Information (AI).
There are several ways to capture and store financial data. It can be kept on paper, in a spreadsheet, in a database, or in any number of accounting systems. In my opinion, data has little value until it is turned into useful information. Information can help you make informed decisions, while data is just a bunch of numbers.
At Red Wing Software, our goal is to give you the tools to get good information out of your data by first asking: “What do our customers need to make good management decisions?” We then attempt to find the best way to get data into the software so you have the tools to get the good information you need for useful reports. To help get this accomplished, we have a knowledgeable team of support people to answer your questions about using your software.
With all this Accounting Information (AI), we continuously live our vision: Creating the Best Management Software Experience.
