Today Intacct, a provider of online professional accounting solutions will announce the release and launch of the first-ever completely Web-based inventory management system for small-to-midsize enterprises.
"Completely integrated with its online professional accounting system, Intacct's new Inventory Management Suite includes order entry, inventory control and purchase order applications that can be used as standalone applications or as a complete integrated system," said Wendy Bednarz of Intacct.
Data entered into the Inventory Management Suite applications is automatically propagated in real-time to Intacct's General Ledger, Accounts Payable and Accounts Receivable applications, so that all accounting and financial data within the system is always current, according David Thomas, Intacct CEO. Previously, automated inventory management solutions were available only through low-end offerings with limited functionality that required the repeated entry of data into multiple software programs, and in costly or proprietary client/server applications and enterprise systems, he added.
The Web based software runs on Internet Explorer and Netscape browsers on the traditional Mac operating system and Carbonized versions of the browsers for Mac OS X, he said. Intacct does in-house testing to ensure "100 percent Mac compatibility," Thomas told MacCentral.
"The Mac has been abandoned by a lot of accounting software firms, but with the Intacct system, users can move to a new accounting system and continue to use their Macs," he added.
The suite is immediately available to users of the Intacct system. For a monthly fee, Intacct customers can subscribe to the Order Entry, Inventory Control and Purchase Order applications either as part of the complete Inventory Management Suite or as standalone solutions.
