SunSystems euro offering
Business and financial software specialist Systems Union last week launched a euro ‘supplement’ to SunSystems Version 4.1.7, the second of three euro-based offerings. The euro disc upgrade is aimed at customers who want to delay changing to the euro but need a system which can meet European legal trading requirements, such as triangulation and currency rounding, after the start of the single currency on 1 January next year.
The SunSystems 4.1.7 accounting package was released in 1995, and is used by a quarter of all Systems Union customers. It is the first time SunSystems has gone back to modify an old version of its software. It is due to ship in mid-October.
