July 7, 2009 (Rockaway, NJ) - Small business software developer Acclivity today announced the release of the long-awaited Canadian version of AccountEdge, their small business accounting solution for the Mac. The release marks the return of AccountEdge to Canada after an eight-year absence.
"We've been wanting to re-introduce AccountEdge back into Canada for a long time," said Todd Salkovitz, Product Evangelist at Acclivity. "For years, the Canadian Mac small business community has been letting us know loud and clear that Canadians using Macs deserve world-class software and I'm happy to finally be able to say that we've made it happen."
Acclivity acquired MYOB US, Inc. and its development team from MYOB Limited of Australia in late November 2008, and named bringing AccountEdge back to Canada as a top priority. Acclivity brings two products to Canada today: AccountEdge, premium small business accounting software for Mac, and AccountEdge Network Edition, which adds multi-user networking to AccountEdge.
The Canadian version of AccountEdge comes packed with new features. The command centre interface has evolved with a more streamlined design, plus the addition of the Task List, a sliding drawer for quick access to frequently used windows and reports. Business Insights provides trend-based information for year-over-year analysis of profits, turnover, and operating balances.
Mac OS X support has been enhanced with Address Book Syncing, iCal integration, MobileMe backup, improved AppleScript capability, better reporting, and integration with Checkout and Daylite. For a full list of the almost 10 years worth of new features available in AccountEdge, go to ca.accountedgeapp.com/features.
Windows Version "We've got good news for Canadian small businesses using Windows, too," Salkovitz said. "We will be releasing a Windows version of AccountEdge for Canada in 2010. More details will be posted on our website as they become available."
