DMS being discontinued?

I just read a post on a discussion board that mentioned that DMS was being discontinued and would not be available next year.  Supposedly someone was going over their renewals and saw that it was not listed.  When they inquired about it their rep said it was discontinued and that they were recommended DMS users move to a cloud based option called SmartVault.

I've got a call with my rep scheduled in a couple of days and will ask about this, but can anyone else confirm this?

Know what I would like to see? Some savy financial type putting together a deal (crowdfunding? Kickstarter?) to buy out Lacerte. Why not let someone else have a go at it?  Intiuit seems to be making it plain that it no longer sees any value in the company. If not, why are they treating Lacerte users with such a lack of respect and concern? If we treated clients this way, we would be out of business in a week.

Cloud strorage for tax data? Seriously?

People come to Accountants Community for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

  1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
  2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
  3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
  4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
  5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
