Access in bid to challenge Sage

Access expects to challenge market leader Sage with accounts software FoundationsXP.

It is confident its new software will prove successful with small businesses, as the current leading option, Sage Line 50, is more expensive and less user friendly, according to the company.

‘We have received many requests from chartered accountants to provide their clients with a real choice of low-cost accounting software,’ said Access Accounting’s managing director Alistair O’Reilly.

‘We believe Access currently leads the market for mid-range e-commerce financials and we are confident we have the potential to steal vast market share from Sage Line 50,’ he adds.

The launch follows a prediction by Microsoft Great Plains that it expects to be the UK’s largest accountancy software provider within three years.FoundationsXP software starts at £375 plus VAT.
