Mac Businesses Save Time with New Connected Accounting Data Exchange
January 31, 2013 (San Francisco, CA) – Accountek Solutions Inc., a leader in the Mac Accounting Software industry for over 20 years, will unveil its new “Data Exchange” feature during the first day of the Macworld Expo. Attendees will be among the first to see the powerful new automation feature that will replace time consuming manual tasks with a highly intelligent business management system.
“The new Data Exchange opens up a whole set of new integration options for Connected users”, says Scott Archer, Director of Product Development. “With the large number of Filemaker Pro developers in attendance at Macworld, we felt it was the ideal event to unveil this great new feature. The integration options are endless and our design, while remaining very secure, offers the user friendly options that Mac users have come to expect from Connected Accounting.”
The Data Exchange window focuses entirely on the automation of moving data in and out of the Connected Accounting & ERP application. Administrators are able to set auto import options to enable the seamless transfer of customer orders, invoices, and other information automatically into the accounting system.
Additionally, data can be configured to be exported from Connected on an interval basis or on demand. “There is a need for businesses to be able to efficiently update other locations, such as a global head office”, Scott explains. “The new Data Exchange feature allows current customer invoice details or critical information for an analytical database to be exported once per day or once per hour without human intervention.”
Some of the additional advancements, found in Connected Accounting & ERP version 7.1, which is displayed on the “First Looks Wall” onsite at Macworld 2013 are:
- New Expense Report Import that enables customers to minimize the task of managing expense reports. Employees enter their expense reports using any iOS or cloud-based application that allows a customized export to be created. The expense details can then be easily imported and viewed in Connected’s Expense Reports window.
- Vendor Electronic Payment enhancements that include the option to auto number EFT (Electronic Funds Transfer) transactions and export EFT transactions to financial institutions for disbursement to vendors. Connected simplifies the transition to cost effective electronic payments by enabling users to email payment advices to their suppliers with the full invoice settlement details, either individually or as a batch.
- Customizable label forms for printing inventory item labels, including bar code fonts, lets the receiving department print labels with lot and serial numbers, while processing the incoming shipment. This new print feature is highly beneficial for inventory based companies whose goods are purchased from offshore with labels displayed in a foreign language or have limited information.
