When upgrading to Business Link 7.5, you must also upgrade to Prinergy Workflow 7.5 or later. The Business Link option will be automatically added to your Prinergy license key during the upgrade.

Upgrades to Business Link 7.5 are free of charge for customers who already have a Prinergy Workflow 7.x license or a service contract that includes software upgrades.

Upgrading
If you a running a version of Business Link software earlier than version 3.0, contact your service representative to schedule a remote upgrade.
