iTrent Electric Switch Coronavirus Delay

Due to the unprecedented challenges Coronavirus is having on business, we are acutely aware that business priorities are changing. Consequently, we are delaying the mandatory switch over to iTrent Electric until 31st May 2020.

How can I make sure my Electric switch is delayed?

If you wish to delay the switch over to Electric happening automatically, you must be running Release 10.34.01 plus all patches or Release 10.35.00, and you must install hotfix 203742 no later than 31st March 2020. To reiterate, if you do nothing then your iTrent will automatically switch over to Electric on the 1st April.
