The Downtown Sacramento Partnership sponsored a 2nd annual Business First event on Friday, June 14th at the Sacramento Convention Center. Nearly 400 new business owners and hopefuls were in attendance to hear key speakers provide helpful information for new businesses. Also on hand were approximately 75 vendors in the convention lobby center sharing their business information and services with those in attendance.
There was much mingling and exchanging of information. Big Hairy Dog was there to discuss retail technology to new retail businesses coming to the downtown area. The half-day event was a big success.

Last month, May 20th and 21st, BHD hosted a User Conference for their VIP customers, who flew in from around the country. On the evening of the 20th, we enjoyed a box suite at the River Cats game and had a great time getting to meet each other and put faces with names.
On Tuesday, May 21st, the Citizens Hotel was the setting for the all-day conference where information was shared on the future of Retail Pro Inc, the newest product offerings and customizations. Vendors also were on hand to share and demonstrate some awesome new hardware and integrations with the Retail Pro software.
Lunch was catered by Mama Kim's Restaurant just a short walk to the Caesar Chaves Park. It was a valuable and truly successful conference. Below are some photos taken at the event.

Received From Retail Pro, Inc.: Sacramento, CA : March 25, 2013
Retail Pro International, LLC (RPI) considers the ability to use Retail Pro® efficiently and effectively as one of the most important mainstays within the Retail Pro community. As such, it is important that RPI maintains the ability to provide support to its customers as constructively as possible. To facilitate this, we have a support structure that is capable of providing standard and emergency support 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year to our customer base via our Business Partner network.
A customer's Software Assurance is paramount to maintaining this level of support. Therefore, a customer must be current on Software Assurance with RPI to take advantage of these support facilities.
Provided a customer does have a valid Software Assurance contract with RPI they can receive Retail Pro support via their Business Partner. For customers not active on Software Assurance with RPI, support will not be provided under any circumstances, including situations where a customer is not able to use their Retail Pro® software because it is "down".
In situations where active Software Assurance is not present, and a customer is in need of support from Retail Pro, a renewal for Software Assurance for that customer must be processed by RPI prior to receiving support.

The Retail Pro International (RPI) Technical Support team has recently been made aware of a potential issue caused by the Tax Rate by Zip Code plugin for Retail Pro 9 users who have the plugin loaded but are not actively licensed for its use. The report has identified issues where the tax rate at POS can be zeroed out unintentionally for those users not licensed for use of the Retail Pro 9 Tax Rate by Zip Code plugin. Users who are licensed for the Tax Rate by Zip Code plugin will not see an issue.
If you are not licensed for and configured to use the Tax Rate by Zip Code plugin, please call Big Hairy Dog for assistance in removing specific files from the plugins directory. This very brief call will resolve the issue, or eliminate it from becoming an issue in the future.
If you have any questions or would like further clarification, please contact BHD's Technical Support Department at 916-368-1070.
