LIEN WRITER® ON-LINE HELP

As a service to the entire Building Construction Industry we have put our Lien Writer® Help File at a new website of www.lienwriterhelp.comThis website is our Lien Writer® Help File released for use by the general public and as a convenience for our customers.  The Help File also contains valuable information on all of the Mechanic’s Lien laws for the 50 U.S. States, 11 Canadian Provinces and the U.S. Territories for Public, Private and for Federal Jobs.  We have provided this on-line service for the benefit of our customers, who may be away from their office programs in the field, and for the benefit of everyone in the Building Construction Industries, including your customers, who may need some information on doing Mechanic’s Lien paperwork themselves.

Spread the word.  The website www.lienwriterhelp.com is available for everyone’s use at no charge.  If they want the required Mechanic’s Lien forms to use themselves, tell them they will have to buy Lien Writer®.

On Friday, December 7th, 2018, we will be online at Amazon.com with our Lien Writer® product line.  This means that anyone needing to purchase Lien Writer®, or order upgrades or additional licenses of our products, can order them any time via www.amazon.com.  Tell your friends, customers and associates.  Just look up Lien Writer®.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION ON UPGRADING FROM 9.3.2.7 AND PRIOR VERSIONS

In our last newsletter we wrote to clients about the importance of upgrading from any version of Lien Writer® 9.3.2.7 and before.  These versions are now simply too outdated to continue to use, and it is easy to update (see below).  Using old, out of date software is not worth the risk to your construction jobs.  To solve the problem, just call us!

We are aware that Golden Omega Software made a claim they were going to be offering a new Version 12 of the Lien Writer®software, which they are calling i-Lien, on December 1st, 2018.  Well, December 1st, 2018 has come, and gone, and Golden Omega Software is still not selling their claimed Version 12.  We personally do not believe they have a new version of the program to offer since they have been promising a new release since September of 2018.  We know they do not have a current version of our source code and we know they cannot make another program current with the laws of the land.  Further, this product belongs to us.

Our current software version of Lien Writer® is Trademarked.  Action is planned against Golden Omega Software, and we encourage you to cease using these old versions of Lien Writer®, as hundreds of other companies have done.  It is not worth your time to lose your program for non-compliance or get caught up in a Trademark action.

Anyone with questions on getting the latest update should call us for help (see below).  The cost to current users upgrading from the old 9.3.2.7 and before versions is currently free to any registered user of the program, but this will cease on December 31st, 2018.
