Specs, Pricing & Availability

Advanced Customer Service is compatible with Stone Edge versions 5.936 or later, including 7.0x, 7.1x and 7.5x. (The new payment system in 7.1x and 7.5x is fully supported, but it has not been reviewed or certified for PCI compliance.) 

ACS requires Microsoft Access 2010 or later and a screen resolution of at least 1600 x 900 (1920 x 1080 or larger recommended). Each user can decide whether to use Advanced Customer Service or the regular View Customer and Manual Order screens, and it only takes a minute or so to switch between the standard and Advanced screens.

Advanced Customer Service is available now from Barney Stone Software. The price is $1,000. Owners of our Advanced View Orders product are eligible for a $100 discount on the purchase of Advanced Customer Service.
