Compeat Reminders

Are you changing your POS? Don’t forget to give the Compeat peeps at 3 week notice!

We are seeing more and more of our customers choosing to switch their point of sales system during this time. In order to help the transition go as smoothly and quickly as possibly please be aware of the following:

  • If you are planning on changing your POS reach out to 3 weeks prior to your desired change date.
  • If at all possible, plan your go live date to a new POS on or near the first day of your payroll processing.
  • Often times you will need to make changes in your existing POS prior to switching to ensure the data points are consistent. Therefore, Compeat will need to also make adjustments via our development team to make sure everything aligns. A 3 week notice will give us time to make these changes.

If you have any questions please do not hesitate to reach out to us. We are here to make sure the transition is seamless!
