in Financial (E)

[] Rockaway, NJ - Acclivity today announced the release of AccountEdge 2010, the latest version of their premium small business accounting software for Mac. The latest version of AccountEdge comes packed with the most requested updates and features as asked for by our users. Among the notable new features are integration with Sofa's web store EnStore, more detailed tracking of item information, profitability of a sale analysis, and bank deposit slip printing.

"AccountEdge 2010 comes with several considerable updates this year," said Tom Nash, Acclivity Managing Partner. "One of the new additions that we're excited to talk about is the integration with EnStore, the new web store developed by our Checkout partners, Sofa. This feature is appealing for anyone that wants to offer their customers a simple, elegant online shopping experience. It's easy to get started and start selling."

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.

EnStore comes with the flexibility to customize your store, automatic shipping and tax rate lookup, hassle-free payment processing through major payment providers and a set of beautifully designed templates. You don't have to be a web designer to set up this online store. EnStore, currently in beta, comes with free setup, free hosting and unlimited bandwidth and storage. (Service available February 2010).

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.

Print bank deposit slips
Save time by printing out your bank deposit slips, while taking into consideration cash back on deposits, total cash, total checks, and number of items deposited. Purchase accompanying deposit slips that come pre-printed with your account information, and take your deposit slips right to the bank.

List searching improvements
Search with more speed and efficiency in 'select from' lists, such as when choosing a customer when filling out an invoice. You can search by first name, last name, company name, phone number, and more to help you find what you're looking for faster. The new Search By feature works for vendors and items, too.

Open last company file
The welcome window comes with a new design that makes it easier to open your company file with the new Open Last file function. Open Last displays the last company file you opened, allowing you to start working with a single click.
