Posted on June 16, 2011, by lauren

June 16, 2011 (Rockaway, NJ) – Acclivity today announced AccountEdge Basic for Mac. Their new small business accounting application creates sales, manages banking and customers, runs over 85 reports and integrates with many of Acclivity’s other small business apps and services.

“AccountEdge Basic is for the Mac small business owner who is looking for more than just invoicing, but doesn't need all of the features in an app like AccountEdge,” said Managing Partner Tom Nash. “Basic makes quick work of billing, but also tracks expenses and allows for full bookkeeping, so the owner has a complete picture of their business.”

Manage sales, banking, and customers

AccountEdge Basic makes use of AccountEdge’s familiar command center. The sales command center allows for the creation of customizable quotes, orders, and invoices. A complete accounts receivable tracking system lets you know who owes you money and how overdue they are. In the banking command center, checks can be written, bank deposits prepared, and accounts reconciled. The card file tracks customer, employee, and vendor information, and syncs with Address Book.

Services and add-ons

AccountEdge Basic works with many services and add-on applications offered by Acclivity, including Merchant Account Service, Full Service Payroll, and Enstore. Integration with AccountEdge Mobile is awaiting App Store approval and is expected shortly.

FirstEdge discontinued

AccountEdge Basic replaces FirstEdge in Acclivity’s Mac product line. FirstEdge customers who want to move from FirstEdge to AccountEdge Basic can do so after easily upgrading their existing company file with the included upgrade assistant.
