MIDAS v4.15 Out Now!

With Easter over for another year (and with what seems like enough chocolate to keep us going until the next!), we’re excited to announce the availability of MIDAS v4.15, our powerful web based room booking and resource scheduling software.

Here’s What’s New & Improved in v4.15

How To Get MIDAS v4.15…

New To MIDAS?

We are committed to fair and accessible pricing for all organizations regardless of size. We’re totally upfront and transparent about our pricing structure. In fact, with the affects of “Brexit”, our international prices are some 13% lower right now than they were 12 months ago – so there’s never been a better time to buy!

“Self Hosted” Customers:

Self-Hosted customers with ongoing Annual Support Subscriptions will be able to update to v4.15 in the next few days. It only takes a couple of clicks – simply log in to your MIDAS system and go to MIDAS Admin Options → Manage MIDAS → Update

“Cloud Hosted” Customers:

Cloud-Hosted customers don’t need to do anything! – All our active Cloud-Hosted MIDAS customers have already been automatically updated to the latest version of MIDAS over Easter!

If you have any questions about MIDAS, why not drop us an email, or reach out to us through social media – We’d love to hear from you!

Happy New Year!!

It’s the start of a brand new year, and so usually it’s around this time that many businesses quietly increase their prices each year…

Well, not here at MIDAS!! As you may know, we’re a UK based business, and not only have we held our 2016 prices for UK customers going into 2017, but given the short term fluctuations in value of the British Pound since the UK’s decision to leave the EU back in June, our prices for non-UK customers today are actually around 14-20% LOWER than they were at this time last year!

So there’s really never been a better time to get MIDAS! – Make it your new year’s resolution to get your organization’s scheduling and room bookings back on track in 2017 with MIDAS!

What’s more, in 2017 we’re extending private trial periods of our software. Whilst most new customers who first explore a private trial of MIDAS prior to purchase decide it’s right for them within a two week private trial period (in addition of course to our public demo of MIDAS – which has no time limit), we appreciate that due to the extensive range of capabilities of our software some customers like a little long to be able to fully explore all of the features that MIDAS has to offer.

That’s why in 2017 we’re increasing the length of the trial periods we offer from 14 to 30 days!

If you’re considering MIDAS or alternatives to your current room/resource scheduling system, then please contact us to request your free no-obligation 30 day trial

2016 marked our 10th anniversary, and we hope to bring you more exciting updates to MIDAS throughout 2017!

We hope 2017 is a prosperous year for you and your business and we’d love to get MIDAS working for your organization and make your life easier in 2017 and beyond…

We are delighted to announce the completion of our roll out of dedicated sub domains for all our cloud hosted customers!

Following a desire expressed by a few of our existing customers to be able to have their cloud-hosted MIDAS systems accessible via dedicated sub-domains of mid.as, at the start of this year we began providing this to all new customers who chose a cloud hosted edition of MIDAS.

For instance, if you purchased a cloud-hosted edition of MIDAS in 2016 and your company was called “My Organization”, you would have been able to chose the dedicated MIDAS domain https://my-organization.mid.as for your hosted scheduling system.

However, if your company was called “My Organization” and you purchased a cloud-hosted edition of MIDAS prior to 2016 – before dedicated mid.as sub-domains were available – you’d instead have been accessing your MIDAS system via https://mid.as/my-organization

The good news is that from today, we’ve now rolled out dedicated mid.as sub-domains to all our hosted customers who purchased prior to 2016 as well!

So, if you previously accessed your hosted MIDAS system via https://mid.as/my-organization, you’ll now have the dedicated sub-domain https://my-organization.mid.as (Old mid.as/my-organization URL’s will continue to work and redirect to my-organization.mid.as for some time)

If you purchased a cloud-hosted MIDAS system prior to 2016, we’d like to encourage you to update your bookmarks & links to point to your new dedicated mid.as sub-domain going forward!

There are a few things to note when updating your bookmarks/links:

  1. If your hosted MIDAS URL previously contained any underscores (_), you’ll need to change these to hypens () when updating your bookmarks/links, for example:
    https://mid.as/my_organization would now become https://my-organization.mid.as

  2. If your hosted MIDAS URL previously contained a domain name (other than mid.as) (i.e. .co.uk, .com, etc), you’ll need to remove this part when updating your bookmarks/links, for example:
    https://mid.as/myorganization.com would now become https://myorganization.mid.as

  3. If your hosted MIDAS URL previously contained any period characters (.) (other than the initial period in the primary “mid.as” domain), you’ll need to remove these when updating your bookmarks/links, for example:
    https://mid.as/my.organization would now become https://myorganization.mid.as

If you have any questions, or aren’t sure what the new dedicated sub-domain for your particular hosted MIDAS system is, please don’t hesitate to contact us and we’ll be happy to help!

Help Improve MIDAS!

We’re able to bring you exciting updates like v4.13 thanks in part to our Beta Testers – many of whom are just every day MIDAS users!

Our Beta Testers get early-access to upcoming releases to explore and provide feedback on, allowing us to make changes and address potential issues before each new version is publicly released.

We also reward Testers for their contributions with discounts against the cost of purchasing MIDAS, or which can be used against upgrades & renewals for an existing MIDAS system!

We’re always on the lookout for additional testers to help shape future versions of MIDAS. It’s free to get involved and you don’t need any previous experience.
