Easter passed already?
We're already into the 3rd month of 2016, if you can believe it. And the team at Ebix haven't watsed anytime. recently we upgraded Online Payment Gateway and added OPGView to its list of features; the much anticipated WinBEAT4.1.59 was released just a few weeks ago; and Sunrise and eBusiness Portal both received upgrades.
We hope you had a restful and enjoyable Easter Break - and found the Easter Bunny's stash!

Microsoft are due to release the full version of Windows 10 on or around 29th July, 2015. Not only is Windows 10 a new operating system, it also includes a new web browser to replace Internet Explorer. Ensuring compatibility between a new operating system and Ebix software is a major undertaking.
Ebix will begin the evaluation process with the full version of Windows 10. Until such time as this evaluation process is completed we cannot support Windows 10 with any version of Ebix software.
Stay tuned for further updates.
