Connected Release Features UPS Integration And New ‘Actions’


Accounting software includes productivity enhancements for Mac-based businesses

January 19, 2011 (Toronto, ON) – Accountek Solutions Inc., today announced the latest updates to their small business accounting software suite. Connected Accounting & ERP, version 6.3 will include full integration to NRGShip Pro for UPS, providing a robust shipping solution for Mac-based businesses. Also included in the release are enhanced customer and vendor ‘Actions’ to improve business workflow and support for complete serial/lot number tracking.

“As we begin our 20th year, we continue to focus on incorporating new features into Connected that start from our customers’ feedback,” said Scott Archer, Director of Product Development. “Although we develop solutions for both Mac and Windows users, we’re delighted to be able to support growing Mac-first businesses.”

Integration to NRGShip Pro for UPS

Connected users will be able to automatically update freight amounts and UPS tracking numbers will appear as active hotlinks on Connected’s invoice entry screen, enabling front line customer service representatives to immediately determine the status of a shipment from within the accounting software.

Customer and vendor actions

With the enhanced customer workflow, accounting staff will be able to add customers ‘on the fly’ and enter orders without having to exit the order entry screen, saving valuable processing time. Similarly, vendors can be directly added from the purchase order screen.

Serial/lot number tracking

Lot control is essential for manufacturers that produce consumer goods such as cosmetics, food and children’s apparel. Connected’s functionality enables customers to be able to identify each of the components received, how the parts were used in fabrication and the where the final product was shipped.

More features in Connected Accounting & ERP
  • Display all open activities per customer including quotes, orders and invoices
  • Support for electronic prepayment checks
  • Create purchase orders directly from the manufacture window
