Locally developed add-on software and integrated products for Accpac accounting software are to be introduced to the Australian market in October. Developed by Acctivity, a division of major Accpac value-added reseller and solutions provider Softline Lorge, the products will be demonstrated at the Accpac Partnership Australia conference in Sydney from October 2-4.

Two of the products that Acctivity business manager, Neels du Plooy, will demonstrate in Australia are Acctivity Cashbook 5.1 and Acctivity Integration Manager 5.1, a professional, intuitive software tool for secure importing of data into various components of an Accpac suite of accounting software modules. Cashbook allows compatibility templates to be developed for any bank. It streamlines capture of receipts and payments and significantly improves the management of cash and bank transactions. "Cashbook is a comprehensive solution covering the entire spread of a company’s bank administration needs."

The software co-exists with the Accpac Bank Services module and with Acctivity’s EFT (electronic funds transfer) Manager to provide highly sophisticated, yet simple to apply, bank administration functionality." Integration Manager aims to manage, process and track data provided by external or legacy systems for integration to and with other back-end accounting data. "Easy, user-definable templates and rules for the importing of comma delimited and flat files as well as the automatic creation of any number of transaction types means Accpac users with external or legacy products can rely on secure and validated batch creation at the push of a button," says Du Plooy.

"Users are assured of trouble-free operation and database independence. Integration Manager exploits all of Accpac’s standard functionality such as data activation, security and multi-currency and integrates with many standard Accpac modules, including General Ledger, Accounts Payable, Accounts Receivable, Order Entry and Inventory Control," he adds. Du Plooy says all of the Acctivity software programs are developed using the Accpac software development kit (SDK) and will therefore function on any database supported by Accpac.
