Introducing AccountEdge Basic

We’re proud to announce the release of AccountEdge Basic, the little sister of AccountEdge. With a focus on sales and banking, the heart of most small small-businesses, AccountEdge Basic is the best place to start for Mac savvy entrepreneurs in the USA looking to get off on the right foot with their billing and bookkeeping. If you want to sell services or items, produce quotes, orders or invoices, sell online with a hosted web store, or accept credit cards, AccountEdge Basic is for you.

Have an iPhone, iPod Touch or iPad? AccountEdge Basic also syncs to AccountEdge Mobile to take your biz on the road with you. Forgot to mention that AccountEdge Mobile is FREE.

When you’re ready to add payroll, full inventory management, purchases, time billing and multi user, you can always move up to AccountEdge. It’s simple. Download the Pro version of AccountEdge and open your Basic company file. That’s it.

This new app replaces FirstEdge and FirstEdge users will be happy to hear that their files are easily upgradeable too.

Progress Billing

AccountEdge 2011 introduces support for Progress Billing. Think of progress billing as a way to create a quote and billing it out in phases or over time. For example a construction project where we’ll invoice out 10% now, 50% half way and 40% upon completion. We allow for different ways to break it down (percent, quantity, dollar amounts…).
