Additional features have been added or enhanced in myStratus Desktop 2023.

Feature Description
64 Bit!

We've upgraded myStratus to 64 bit from 32 bit. This change allows computers to use more of their RAM and power when working in myStratus. This change should help increase speed across the board, but more so with high intensity processes. Working with images is a great example of a high intensity process.
myStratus 2023 requires a 64-Bit Operating System.

QuickBooks Direct Integration!

If you are using Quickbooks Direct Integration, then you must be using the 64 bit version of Quickbooks (which is only available in QB 2022 and QB 2023).
