As of April 8, 2014, Microsoft will be ending all support for Windows XP, Office 2003 and Exchange 2003.

What does this mean?

Anyone still using any of these programs will no longer receive security updates, mainstream Microsoft support, or hot fixes, resulting in systems becoming extremely vulnerable to malicious software as well as compliance issues, all of which could lead to the loss of data and information and spell big trouble for your business and Microsoft Dynamics products. In addition, new and old software may now be incompatible with your current system, resulting in less functionality. Running dated software can slow your business down and, without any support from Microsoft for your system, it could be devastating to your productivity and profitability.

What can you do?

Upgrade to Windows 8.1 and Office 365.  With Windows 8.1, Microsoft introduces a variety of new features for functionality and security as well as keeps some of the old features you know and love. With advanced technology, Windows 8.1 and Office 365 allow you to work faster and easier.
