POTLATCH, ID (PRWEB) January 16, 2005
2 Good Software, a developer of innovative, friendly software solutions for home and business, announced today that it has released a new version of its flagship product, Accum. This version of their professional tape adding machine software is the companyÂs first release into the retail market. This new release of Accum 8.4 is aimed even more directly at the mechanical adding machine market. With Accum 8.4 on retail shelves, customers looking for a new adding machine are presented with an attractively priced ($19.95), feature rich alternative to expensive machines that take up desk space, wear out and continually need replacement paper rolls and ribbons.
The latest version of Accum is the first product released under a new marketing program initiated by 2 Good Software last fall. After nearly ten years of offering its products only via the Internet, the company is reshaping its image and moving its products onto retail shelves with new packaging and anti-piracy controls. New design strategies enhance user friendliness and will position the companyÂs software to take advantage of current and foreseen operating system enhancements.
In Accum 8.4, an optional subtotal column has been added to the tape. With this feature turned on, every line on a tape that changes the running subtotal displays the new subtotal. In the background, the program initialization values have been shifted to a disc file so that reliance on the system registry has been removed. Accum users will also find an enhanced user guide that takes up much less disc space and affords direct Internet access to company email addresses and a seamless path to the 2 Good Software web site.
The new packaging designed for 2 Good Software retail products is as environmentally sound as possible. There is no mostly empty cardboard box that is usually discarded. Instead, 2 Good Software selected reusable, DVD style cases. These compact cases are both eye-catching and a convenient post-purchase storage medium for the software CD. The chance the case will find its way into a landfill shortly after product purchase is greatly reduced.
The new version of Accum is still available for download from the company's web site at http://www.2goodsoftware.com, and is now also available from a growing selection of retailers who sell quality home and office software. Customers still have the option of evaluating a downloaded copy of the program before deciding to buy. Evaluation codes can be obtained instantly via email after the program is first started. Once the decision is made to purchase the program, customers now have more buying options. In addition to purchasing the program off the shelf, activation codes for downloaded copies can be purchased online either from the 2 Good Software web site or from within Accum.
2 Good Software has adopted the software anti-piracy controls developed by SoftWORKZ Innovation Inc of Canada. The Software_DNA product offered to software developers by SoftWORKZ requires Internet access, is user friendly, fairly priced and very effective at controlling unauthorized software distribution. By selecting Software_DNA, 2 Good Software is able to provide users with theft protection that is easy to use and helps keep the cost of software reasonable.
Persons interested in Accum 8.4 can visit 2 Good SoftwareÂs web site or ask for the program at their favorite software retailer. Retailers interested in stocking Accum are encouraged to send an email to sales@2goodsoftware, or call (208) 875-1399.
2 Good Software has been successfully developing and offering user friendly software via the Internet since 1996. Backed by over 30 years of software development experience, 2 Good Software offers customers software solutions that fit.
