As of 14th January 2020, Microsoft will no longer be supporting any devices running their Windows 7 operating system.

Windows 7 End of Life

What Does This Mean For Your Business?

Whilst PC's running Windows 7 will still function, there will no longer be updates or patches released for the operating system meaning that bugs and viruses will not be fixed by Microsoft and updates will not be available, leaving your valuable information open and vulnerable to attack.

In order to keep your information safe after this date it is highly recommended that businesses running Windows 7 operating system upgrade to Windows 10. Not only will this upgrade ensure you are safe from vulnerability due to an unsupported operating system, it will also enhance your Platinum system, with features such as Windows 10 built-in PDF printing, giving you the facility to send invoices & statements directly from Platinum via PDF.

How Can Catalyst Help?

As a valued Catalyst customer, we want to help you avoid any risk to your business. We will provide you with a free, no obligation consultation about how this change may affect you, and the options you have to ensure your companies data remains safe from any vulnerabilities due to an unsupported operating system after January 2020.

For newer PC's a system upgrade may be all that's necessary, however for older PC's a complete replacement may be required.

For your free consultation please contact our sales team, who will talk you through all of your options and answer any questions you may have about Windows 7 end of support.
