Auckland,  NZ   Nov 06, 2017 in Financial


Cognito Software Ltd releases MoneyWorks Datacentre 8, the first truly extensible accounting and business system for macOS. With the ability to script and even design new native Mac windows, MoneyWorks can now be extended to incorporate the special requirements of small-medium enterprises. The powerful REST APIs in MoneyWorks make it a natural accounting hub for the organization, with the ability to seamlessly share data with both cloud and in-house systems such as Excel or FileMaker.


[] Auckland, New Zealand - More businesses run on Mac than ever before, but a frustration for many of these organizations is that the ERP systems they desire are usually the reserve of Windows based operations. That's all about to change with the release of MoneyWorks Datacentre 8, which allows Mac based organizations access to a powerful ERP solution which is set to revolutionize the way they do business.

Built from the ground up to work with Mac, MoneyWorks Datacentre 8 allows the accounting engine to integrate with existing business processes and software, at a fraction of the price and complexity of a traditional ERP system.

"We believe that nobody should have to use browser to manage their systems when the Mac has such a rich, native user experience," says Dr Grant Cowie, CEO of MoneyWorks. "The capabilities of MoneyWorks are truly ground breaking. Extensible systems, available both in the cloud and/or locally hosted, are going to revolutionize business systems. And critically for Mac users, MoneyWorks integrates fully with existing desktop applications like Mail, Excel, Numbers or FileMaker."

Businesses can extend or modify the functionality of MoneyWorks to suit their business processes. They can implement whole new workflows, including new data sources and storage, and all within a single framework.

"In the short time that MoneyWorks Datacentre 8 has been available we've been seeing some really exciting developments by our customers," continues Cowie. "We've seen customers implementing streamlined budgeting processing, call centre logging, complex variation handling in construction, customised invoice order/rejection systems, and synchronizing with SQL databases and cloud services. We know that there are many other users doing custom development, the functionality is built right into MoneyWorks"

MoneyWorks Datacentre 8 also integrates easily with cloud services, such as ecommerce or specialised jobbing systems, allowing companies to push data (such as sales transactions, customer updates) into MoneyWorks using its powerful set of REST APIs, or, using the scripting capability within MoneyWorks, exchange data using the cloud service's APIs.

For Mac based organizations that are looking for a more powerful, flexible ERP solution without the cost and complexity associated with the traditional offerings, MoneyWorks 8 has the answer.

MoneyWorks Datacentre 8 is fully cross platform on Mac and Windows, and scales to over 100 concurrent users. As well as the extensibility offered by the scripting and user-interface builder, the core MoneyWorks includes multi-location inventory, serial/batch tracking, multi-currency, report writers, time-billing and job costing, all integrated with a powerful multi-dimensional general ledger.
