in Financial (E)

[prMac.com] Rockaway, New Jersey - Acclivity today announced the release of the 2010 versions of AccountEdge for Mac and AccountEdge Network Edition for Mac, and a new-to-Canada version, AccountEdge for Windows. Acclivity develops Mac and Windows accounting and business management software for small businesses in over 70 countries.

AccountEdge for Windows marks the return of what used to be known as MYOB Accounting Plus, which has not been available for sale in Canada since 2002. Acclivity returned to the Canadian market with what used to be known as MYOB software last year, bringing AccountEdge for Mac to Canada after an eight-year absence.

"The release of AccountEdge for Windows in Canada is another important milestone for our Canadian business," said Acclivity's Glenn Elliott. "And the first upgrade of AccountEdge for Mac in Canada marks the first anniversary of a product that's been very well received by Canadian small businesses and the Canadian Mac community at-large."

New in AccountEdge for Windows:
The Canadian version of AccountEdge 2010 for Windows comes with close to a decade's worth of features. Aside from core features including sales and purchases, banking, inventory, time billing, payroll and contact management, here is a small sampling:

* Credit card processing
* Integration with Enstore for online sales
* New command center interface
* Undo bank reconciliations
* More item attributes - brands, tags, weight, multiple images
* Maintain multiple years of transactions
* Time sheets for billing and payroll

More information on all of the features found in AccountEdge 2010 for Windows can be found on the Canadian AccountEdge website.

New in AccountEdge for Mac:
Among the notable new features in the latest version of AccountEdge for Mac are integration with Sofa's web store Enstore, more detailed tracking of item information, and profitability of a sale analysis.

Web store integration:
Enstore is a pay-as-you-go web store that seamlessly integrates with AccountEdge. Products, images, pricing and other details are managed in AccountEdge and synced up to Enstore. AccountEdge pulls down new orders, customers, payments and taxes.

Additional item attributes:
AccountEdge 2010 comes with more robust tracking of item information, including item weight, tagging functionality, brand association, Internet price, and the ability to attach up to three images to an item for multiple viewpoints.

Profitability of a sale:
Quickly learn the profitability of a sale with the Show Profit Analysis button. It shows gross profit, margin, and cost of each item you are selling and for the entire invoice. Change the price per unit to see how it affects margin and profitability. You can show profit analysis from an order, quote, or an invoice.
