Gateshead-based financial software house QSP has added two web-based applications to its increasingly diversified product armoury.
Financial Collaborator is a web-driven budgeting application developed by in-house programmers with the help of Deloitte & Touche. For its new travel and entertainment application, QSP enlisted the help of Californian developer Exentisity.
‘We have made a decision not to be a full-suite ERP vendor,’ said QSP group marketing director David Pinches. ‘We focus on core financials applications and financial business processes, but we can’t do it all.’
QSP’s web applications strategy is being pushed by a new division, Net Consulting, which installs web-deployable software that can co-exist with QSP’s own and other suppliers’ general ledger systems.
Financial Collaborator is a customisable budgeting spreadsheet that can import general ledger data, for example to build up spending projections on previous year figures.
Users can import last year’s actuals or input their own estimates. Import/export, the accounts hierarchy, organisational structure and security options are defined by the system administrator.
Financial Collaborator costs from #150 per seat for 1,000 users to #300 per seat for a 25-user installation.
