Kildrummy® CostMANAGER Release Guide
Posted on: January 29th, 2013 by

With the release of Kildrummy® CostMANAGER 2.8 due this year, we’ve compiled a list of the key features in each version since 2006. During this time, we have actively enhanced KCM and have developed many features that add value, or improve existing functionality. Many of these improvements are a direct result of customer feedback.

We are dedicated to making sure that our software performs as efficiently as possible. To achieve this, large parts of the software have been rewritten over the last few years. These improvements include an overhauled DataEXCHANGE , and a rewrite of the reporting structures module.

Upgrading from most versions of KCM is a simple process and is highly recommended. New versions are available as part of your maintenance agreement. Please contact the helpdesk for more information.
