Austin, TX (PRWEB) May 11, 2011
Mindover Software (http://www.mindovercorp.com), a business software consulting firm and Sage ERP reseller with offices in Austin, Dallas and San Antonio, announced it recently completed two Accpac upgrades and a brand new Accpac installation for three customers on the same weekend in three different cities in Texas.
According to Lloyd Smith, President of Mindover Software, the work was done over a weekend in order to reduce the downtime for the three companies. “Despite the geographic distance between the three customers, we actually experienced no real complications,” Smith says. “What made the process much easier was our ability to work seamlessly with the IT resources at the respective customer locations. The biggest challenge encountered was that we had to take the upgrades from two prior versions back so essentially we performed two upgrades for both, which amounted to four upgrades in one weekend.”
Smith cites the new web-based portal interface as a significant driver of upgrades to and new sales of Sage Accpac 6. “The Accpac 6 web portal is very easy to navigate and modify to suit your particular needs compared to older versions,” he points out. “Responses from customers when they see the Accpac 6 portal have been extremely positive. We showed Accpac 6 to one customer that only wanted to upgrade to Accpac 5.6 and we ended up not just installing Accpac 6 but also installing additional modules to expand Accpac’s functionality.”
Accpac 6, which was released in late 2010, is the Sage product line’s answer to many cloud offerings that have recently made headlines. Smith notes a key difference with Accpac 6 is its ability to remain on the premise of the company behind its firewall, which enhances security and the ability customize the application. “Our customers understand the appeal of true Internet-based applications,” he says. “What they don’t want are increased security risks that go along with having sensitive financial data hosted by other companies which can become targets of hackers just because of their high-profile.”
One of Mindover Software’s clients, El Pato Mexican Foods, a restaurant chain based in McAllen, TX, was quick to express its satisfaction with the Accpac web interface. “We like Accpac 6 because it’s easy to navigate and modify,” says Joel Jacobson, Controller for El Pato Mexican Foods. “Even better for us, Mindover Software made the transition so easy. Our whole financial team never skipped a beat.”
