updated 08:45 pm EDT, Thu June 16, 2011

Accounting app tracks sales, banking, customers

Acclivity has released AccountEdge Basic for Mac, a slimmed-down offering of its professional software, now simply called AccountEdge. The AccountEdge Basic app, geared towards small businesses, tracks sales with customizable quotes, orders, and invoices, providing an accounts receivable tracking system while managing both banking and customer contacts. It uses command centers to organize sales, banking and accounts, with a card-file system to track customers, employees and vendors. The command centers and card file form the primary menu bar for the app.

The app works with other Acclivity services and add-ons, such as its Merchant Account service, full service payroll, and Enstore, an e-commerce platform. It supports iPhone and iPad data through Dropbox sync, and can generate over 85 kinds of reports.

AccountEdge Basic replaces FirstEdge -- users who want to move from FirstEdge to Basic need to upgrade FirstEdge's company file using an included upgrade assistant. The basic version of AccountEdge version lacks the built-in payroll/time billing, networking and inventory capabilities of the pro version. The company also makes a version of AccountEdge specifically for Canada.

AccountEdge Basic requires Mac OS X 10.5 and retails for $99. It is available now on the web and has been submitted, pending approval, to the Mac App Store.
