End of life for Swissdec 3.0
The Swissdec association will conduct an update of its system to compensate for possible attacks by adopting the most advanced security technologies. ProConcept ERP Version 11.1, which has a certificate for Swissdec 4.0, is not affected by these changes. However, this can cause malfunctions in software wages and unfortunately the previous versions of ProConcept ERP 11.1 are directly affected. This effectively means that as of 01/04/2016, it will not be possible to make Swissdec statements with versions 10.1, 10.2, 10.3.
When Swissdec informed us of this adjustment at the beginning of November 2015, we analyzed the consequences for you as a customer.
So what does this change mean for you?
The transmission of salary data for 2015 electronically must be made before March 31, 2016 if you use a version of ProConcept ERP prior to 11.1. After this time, the electronic transmission of data via Swissdec 3.0 will no longer be possible. Of course, you can always access your salary data manually.
For the transmission of salary data of the year 2016, to be handled at the end of next year or early 2017, two options are available to you:
1) You can track electronically using the Swissdec 4.0 standard, which will require migrating your system to version 11.1 of ProConcept ERP.
2) If your ERP migration is not an option in 2016, you can always transfer your salary data manually on the basis of lists provided by your version of ProConcept ERP.
