Platinum upgrade

Platinum Software has launched version 7 of its Platinum ERA enterprise resource planning suite. The application family has been tuned to run with version 7 of Microsoft’s latest SQL Server and ranges from financials to sales, marketing, distribution and manufacturing. Platinum last month acquired specialist manufacturing vendor DataWorks.

Sage offers lease scheme Newcastle-based PC accounting software supplier Sage has launched a lease-purchase scheme in tandem with Lombard Business Equipment Leasing. The leases allow customers to conserve working capital, maximise tax allowances and upgrade equipment when they need to rather than only when they can afford to buy it outright. Available through Sage resellers, the leases run for three years and have a #1,000 minimum deal size.

Profits up for Infinium Infinium Software’s revenues for the year ending 30 September were $114.4m, up 31% on 1997. Profits for the year, after $7.8m acquisition-related write-offs, were $200,000, compared to $400,000 last year. In spite of strong revenue growth in the fourth quarter, Infinium said net income increased only moderately because of the cost of building its Windows NT-based products.
