Are you seeing more requests from your customers to pay for their purchases via credit cards? We have good news - you’re not alone.

Along with a desire to pay via credit card, a growing number of businesses today are noticing a demand by customers for more varied methods of payments.

Customers are asking to pay for their purchases using multiple credit cards or even with multiple forms of payment, such as a combination of cheque and credit card.

The Solution:

Harvest Ventures’ credit card processing utility allows your company to accept and manage credit card transactions in Macola safely and easily.

In addition, this tool allows businesses to process a large number of credit card transactions from a single screen. This is especially useful for companies who run an eCommerce site. The tool can process the payment as well as create a cashflow entry in Macola!

Take a look at the overview video to learn more:



Verifone has recently announced that PC Charge will be sunset effective May 1st.

As a result, Exact is phasing out support of PC Charge and has created an integration to Verifone’s newer product PAYware Connect.

More information about PAYware Connect can be found here: http://www.verifone.com/products/software/hosted-payment/

In order to purchase Payware a minimum of Exact Macola ES 9.6.100 code or Exact Macola 10 must be used. (The product does not work with Exact Progression).

Customers using PC Charge should have been contacted directly by Verifone but if you have any questions, please contact us.


As you’re likely aware we have hosted three user roundups in Ontario this year and we have received some very positive feedback about the meetings so far with each meeting seeing new attendees join the group.

With Exact Macola Evolve taking place in May, our next meeting will be in June before breaking for the summer.

At June’s meeting, we expect to have a representative from Lynq join us to discuss Workforce Manager and Production Planning & Scheduling. More details will be released as they are finalized.

If you have any suggestions for future meetings, please feel free to send them to us.


Many clients are finding this the right time to bring their software up to the latest version and begin taking advantage of tools like Exact Synergy, Exact Event Manager and Exact Business Analytics.

Harvest Staff have been busy with upgrades to Exact Macola 10 as well as helping customers take advantage of Exact Synergy, specifically for CRM (Customer Relationship Management).

Sound interesting?
