Software and PTF’s

Our current collection software product is RMEx Version 3.1 which was released in early 2013.

The last version of Intelec was Release 8.26. This version was available for general release in the 4th quarter of 2008 and was supported until the end of 2010 unless you have a special agreement with us.

IBM i, i5/OS, & OS/400 Operating Systems

Support for V5R3 was withdrawn by IBM in May 2009.

Our present code requires V5R4 or a newer version of IBM’s operating system (V6R1 or V7R1).

You must be on at least V5R4 of the operating system if you wish to receive support from IBM. This also means that you only be able to receive changes (base or custom modifications) from us if you are at the V5R4 level or higher. Support for V5R4 will be withdrawn by IBM on SEPTEMBER 30, 2013. You should be looking at upgrading to V6R1 or V7R1 as soon as possible.

Please note that the latest version of the IBM operating system, known as V7R1, is now available – We have clients on this version and have no compatibility issues.

The following is from IBM’s web site.

Program conversion is not required if upgrading to IBM i 7.1 from IBM i 6.1.

If upgrading to IBM i 7.1 from IBM i 5.4 or any previous release, program conversion is required for all programs that use the IBM i Machine Interface (MI). This conversion upgrades and refreshes programs to take advantage of the latest system enhancements, including enhanced system integrity, improved performance, and a range of new operating system and processor capabilities. In order for a program to be converted, its creation data (sometimes referred to as observability) must be available. Programs created for IBM i V5R1 or later automatically retain creation data sufficient for conversion. Clients and ISVs with programs created for OS/400® V4R5 and earlier need to ensure that creation data is available for the conversion process.
