Upgrade to MACE Computer Server.

Wednesday, September 25, 2013

Tomorrow, Thursday 26th September MACE will be getting a shiny new computer server. This will mean that on Thursday and possibly Friday the staff at MACE will not have access to their computers. Staff will not be able to send or reply to emails. If you send an email during this time and need an immediate answer you can of course still call the office on 03 5775 2077. We apologize for any inconvenience caused. This server upgrade does not affect the Centrelink computer, our full set of Centrelink Agency functions will still be available.
