Accountek Solutions has released its version 7.0 of Connected Accounting & ERP software for Mac OS X. The upgrade includes features that  focus on access to information and improving collaboration between teams. According to Scott Archer, director of Product Development, Accountek, some of the advancements in Connected Accounting & ERP 7.0 designed to improve the customer experience are:

° The ability to attach/link any file type, of any size, to virtually every screen in Connected using the Notes function. With no limit on the number of attachments or file types, users have the flexibility to organize the electronic versions of documents such as signed contracts or quotations, in the way that suits their needs best, within their accounting system. All files are linked to the entry and copied to a central location on the server, providing visibility to all departments including sales, service and support.

° New ledger screens for customer orders, vendor purchase orders, and manufacture/work orders. Each screen allows custom columns and settings to be selected, by the user. The front line staff can now track open and/or completed orders, drill down to an order and take action immediately to resolve customer, vendor or production issues, all from one screen.

° The Batch Emailing and Batch Printing to PDF features enable users to manage large groups quickly and efficiently. From one screen, customer invoices can be generated, previewed and then emailed directly to the Accounts Payable contact, eliminating the need for paper invoices, envelopes and stamps.

Connected 7 will be on display at the Macworld/iWorld Expo, Jan. 26-28, at the Moscone Center in San Francisco. For more info go to .
