Making the switch from CAS Desktop to CAS360 can seem daunting at first, but BGL will assist clients to manage this project.
Clients will engage with our specialist Client Success Team to help make the switch with you.
When you have completed the purchase of your CAS360, the nominated Administrator of the license will receive a 'Welcome' email that will ask you to log in, nominate a password and set up multi-factor authentication to access your new platform.
For further information on this process, please refer below:
Select Set Password from the 'Welcome' email.
Following this, a new tab will open on your web browser that will request you to nominate a password. Please do so using a unique set of characters and letters that you will remember.
The system will then prompt you to set up multi-factor authentication. Please click here for how to complete this process.
You should then have access to your CAS360 and begin inviting other users into the system as you see fit. For further information on how to do so, please click here.
Once you are ready to begin, you will be required to complete the below two pre-requisite tasks prior to migration.
Note: Microsoft Windows Requirements
At least Windows 7 Service Pack 1 is required on the computer that is running the migration utility.
Please ensure your computer is updated as necessary prior to attempting migration.
Task 1: Review and confirm companies to be migrated to CAS 360
All companies (including Pending Deregistration) are migrated to CAS 360 except Deregistered Companies and Non-Current Clients. If you do not wish to migrate certain companies to CAS 360, follow the steps below:
Within CAS Desktop, go into the selected company.
Navigate to Company Data | Details on the top hand menu. Select the Status tab.
To exclude a company from the migration, ensure that the "Current client?" checkbox is unticked.
The status for the company under Company Selection will now display as "No Longer Client" and this company won't be migrated to CAS 360.
To compare the companies in CAS Desktop against the companies attached to your firm's Registered Agent on ASIC's end, you can lodge an RA61 - Request Review Date Report which can be lodged to ASIC via CAS Desktop.
Please Note: To access the BGL Wiki Help Article without your BGL Client Centre credentials, you can use the Guest Login.
Task 2: Run a Validation Check in your CAS Desktop software. For further information on how to do so, please see below:
To access the Migration utility to run the validations, please click here for further information.
Select the companies you are migrating to CAS 360 and then select Run Validations.
Note: To select all companies, please select Run Validation without selecting any companies and the validation will process for all of your companies.
|The Migration utility will run a check to confirm the accuracy of the data being migrated.
What happens if you receive a validation error?
A validation error will appear if a particular piece of company information needs to be corrected. These errors can be:
Refer to Validation Checks for assistance on resolving the particular error(s) that you receive.
Please provide appropriate 30-day access to the Client Success Team to process the migration of your companies.
In order for Client Success to commence the migration of your data, you will then be required to invite the team into your CAS 360. Please refer to the below steps for how to do so:
|Once logged into CAS 360, select the App Switcher on the top right of the screen.
|A new screen will load, select the Admin tab on the left-hand side bar. Following this, select Token Management.
|The Token Management screen will load. Select Share with BGL Success for CAS 360
|Ensure all users are logged out of CAS Desktop, you can then stop Nexus (refer to How to stop the Nexus Service).
Once Nexus has been stopped, you will be required to extract three folders from your CASWIN folder.
Please note: If CAS is stored on a remote server, please ensure the files are extracted on the server.
These folders will need to be zipped and sent via a secure Dropbox link that will be provided to you by the team.
