Notes from the President

Ken Hilton - President Red Wing Software

I have just three short notes for you this month:
First, I hope everyone had a joyous holiday season.
Second, January has historically been the busiest month here at Red Wing Software. With everyone closing their 2023 books, beginning 2024, and ensuring their payroll information is up to date, our support lines light up. We have prepared internally for this by getting everyone ready to answer your calls. You can ensure that you have a smooth transition to the new year by reviewing the documents available in the online help, and in this newsletter, that answer frequently asked questions about your software. You can also get additional information by visiting the Help section on our website. Please take advantage of the great documents our Technical Writer, Connie, provides to help make using your software easier.
Finally, I thank our dedicated Red Wing Software team members, our loyal customers, and our hard-working partners and vendors for a successful 2023. I wish everyone a happy, safe, and successful New Year.
