New version of Great Plains launched
A number of new software products were launched at Softworld Accounting and Finance this week, including new versions of packages from Microsoft, CODA and Albany.
Microsoft launched an updated version of Great Plains 7.5, with an added analytic accounting tool and FRx 6.7 – a web-based budgeting and reporting tool for medium-sized businesses.
CODA introduced Collaborative Close, designed to make period end closure ‘visible, auditable and repeatable’ for medium to large-sized businesses.
Albany Software extolled the virtues of its BACSTEL-IP compliant software. It meets the requirements needed for the necessary upgrade to an internet-based BACS system, which all companies will need to switch to by the end of 2005.
At the other end of the scale Norwegian-based Mamut Software launched its business software package in the UK, aimed at small businesses and accountants in practice.
