Resellers/Dealers/VAR's/Partners Ending Support for Microsoft RMS

As the July 2021 end of life date comes closer specific to the Microsoft RMS point of sale software, more and more Microsoft RMS Partners/VAR's/Dealers/Resellers are setting firm dates on when they will stop supporting Microsoft RMS and RMS HQ.  So far, the following has been reported to me:
  1. Positive Technologies: January 2021
  2. Compass/Interdyn: Already ended
  3. Retail Technology Experts: Already ended
  4. New West Tech: Pending
  5. RITE: Will support past July 2021 - no near term plans to end RMS/HQ support
If I come across others - I will be sure to pass along. If you are in need of Microsoft RMS/HQ support and/or are looking for a POS software program to replace RMS, please contact me at 208-340-5632 or kevinantosh@gmail.com. Besides the consulting services that I offer, I also work for a Microsoft Dynamics RMS Partner that will continue to support RMS past July 2021 (but not forever given the resources required to support RMS/HQ once Microsoft officially ends RMS/HQ support).
