Here Comes the Newest Version of LegaSuite!

It’s time for another LegaSuite Client update!

Periodically we need to update all credit union branch workstations to run the latest version of the LegaSuite Client software.  This is the underlying client software your PC uses to run CU*BASE GOLD.  We are currently running on version 8.2.2 and will be moving to version 8.5.4.

What do you need to do?

We have created a simple installer that takes just a click and a few seconds to run.  Use the link below for instructions.

LegaSuite Upgrade

Note that this process does require administrator privileges to be run on the PC.  That means your IT team needs to make arrangements for an administrator to run the update on every individual workstation, unless you have set up some network tools to assist with the process.

When do you need to do it?

The final deadline for all workstations to complete the upgrade is August 1, 2021.  But more importantly, if you want to switch to the new vertical receipt format coming with the 21.05 release, you must complete your LegaSuite update before your conversion can be scheduled.

So don’t delay!  Get started today and you’ll be done before you know it.

Special note for CU*Answers Network Services Managed Clients

If you are a Managed Services Client, we will take care of this process for you.

If you have any questions, or if you are encountering any difficulties completing the upgrade to version 8.5.4, please contact the Help Desk at extension 266, or by email.
