Pastel sets up UK operation

Commenting on launching in the UK, Ivan Ferrer, CEO of Pastel International, said: ‘This is a very exciting stage in Pastel’s development. Establishing our UK office as a vital cornerstone of our European network is a significant step for Pastel International in building our market presence.’

At the show, Pastel is also launching the e-commerce and euro-enabled upgrade to its Pastel Partner Series.

This is designed to meet the needs of current and emerging small and medium-sized businesses, and will allow users to create their own shop front with seamless integration into Pastel Accountancy Packages.

Vincent Byrne, UK managing director of Pastel Software, added: ‘The initiative in the UK allows us to take direct control of the management and development of the re-seller and value added retailer network.’

Pastel’s software, which has been accredited by the English ICA, aims to bring a range of business features, which include multi-currency working, within the reach of SMEs. E-commerce capability is the latest major addition to the feature list.

Earlier this year, Pastel set up a European head office in Dublin.
