Looking for business or personal accounting software for Mac OS X? The Appgen Software Companies and Macmillan Software today announced plans to partner for the packaging and distribution of Moneydance 3.0 and MyBooks 5.1. The companies made their announcement in Orlando, FL for this week’s Retail Vision conference.
Calling MyBooks and Moneydance “a strong alternative to QuickBooks and Quicken,” Appgen CEO Jim Kelly said that his company hopes to see an expanded market base both domestic and internationally thanks to its relationships with companies like Macmillan and Apple.
“We are confident that both Moneydance and MyBooks international commerce features are well suited to meet the needs of the growing US Hispanic, European, Asian and Australian markets,” said Kelly.
Moneydance 3.0 is a personal financial management package that sports multi-platform support, for Mac OS X, Windows, UNIX and Linux. The software also supports multiple languages — Italian, Spanish, German, French, Brazilian/Portuguese, UK and US English. It features multi-currency support that enables users to convert their currency values, and provides online account management, check writing functions, scheduled transactions, time reminders, 2D and 3D graphs and report generation. It supports Quicken import as well.
MyBooks 5.1 has been developed with the small business proprietor in mind. Like Moneydance, it supports Mac OS X, Windows, UNIX and Linux. It also features an audit trail and makes use of Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (GAAP). If you’ve been using QuickBooks on a PC, it supports import of that file format, and also takes data from Word, Excel and Crystal Reports.
