We have been advised by the company that hosts our electronic licence activation server that they have recently enforced some security updates that may impact the activation and deactivation of electronic licences from older operating systems.
“Industry standards now require increased security in encryption protocols to keep data safe. We are legally-obligated to comply with these increased security requirements, and doing so requires changes to our hosting infrastructure.”
What Operating Systems are Affected?
Effectively immediately TLS 1.0 is no longer supported for secure connections to their licensing servers. Secure access to their licensing servers is only possible from systems that support TLS 1.1 or TLS 1.2.
Here is a summary of the new operating system requirements:
For operating systems that do not support TLS 1.1 or TLS 1.2 the activation/deactivation processes may fall-back to a less secure connection method. However, if this fails the only solution will be to update the operating system to one that is supported.
Note: This change only affects activations and deactivations. Licences that were activated prior to this change will continue to function normally.
As part of their ongoing development, Uniwell Corporation release firmware upgrades for their AX/HX series POS terminals from time to time. These firmware upgrades include new features and/or fixes for known issues.
Your authorised Uniwell dealer can advise you about the firmware upgrades available for your system. However, it is important to check that firmware upgrades are compatible with the version of Uniwell Lynx you are using BEFORE upgrading. To assist with this we have added a firmware compatibility chart to the Supported POS Terminals page of our web site.
All Uniwell Lynx Licence Status pages have now been updated. Follow the instructions below to find out if you are entitled to a free upgrade to Version 9.
If you are entitled then contact your Uniwell Lynx Reseller to obtain your Version 9 licence. If not, then visit our Upgrades pages to find out more about the advantages of upgrading to Version 9.
We are pleased to announce the release of Version 9!
What’s New in Version 9?
One of the keys to a successful retail business is in-depth sales analysis so you know what you are doing well and where you can improve. The sales analysis reports in Uniwell Lynx have been designed to help you do exactly that. Consider some of the new reports that will be included in Version 9 …
The Daily Sales Report has been replaced by a new Period Sales Report with Daily/Weekly/Monthly options. These reports provide a way to quickly analyse sales trends over time and the optional charts make it easy to visualise the trends.
These new reports allow you to compare sales of particular items across 7 days, 7 Weeks, 7 Days of Week or 7 Months. Sales quantities, sales amounts or both can be shown on these reports and the summarise report option can be used to get an overview by supplier, location, POS terminal, group or price level.
As seen in the reports above Version 9 will also include a new Report Colour Scheme setting with three different colour options and one grayscale option.
