No Longer Using (NLU) is the tag applied a product in the Renewal NLU screen when a user states they are no longer using the program. Customer Service Representatives will contact the licensee or other user in a firm that indicated NLU on a renewal as an opportunity to see why the user is not renewing the program. Finding out this information allows Customer Service to offer more value to the customer. It also provides an opportunity to keep the clients record up to date.

Positioning for saving the renewal

When an external user indicates that they do not plan to renew or they are considering another vendor it is important to ask questions to fully understand the driving force behind this decision. Positioning and considerations are given below by product to assist in trying to save an at risk renewal.

GoSystem Tax RS

Each of the below sections contain questions which an external user should consider (or ask a competitor how they compare) before making the decision not to renew.




Note: If the external user ultimately decides not to renew, update renewal plans to No Longer Using (NLU) in EMS and discuss data retention plans, see GoSystem Tax RS data retention plans. Instructions to NLU a product are listed below. For external users considering a transition to UltraTax CS, see GoSystem Tax RS to UltraTax CS transition process

  4. If multiple products notes are being updated, right click in the Notes box and select Apply "Note" to all.
