AccountMate 6.5 for LAN Well Received by Dealers and Users

AccountMate Offers Customers a Choice of SQL, MSDE or LAN Versions of AccountMate Accounting and Business Management Software With an Identical Interface

NOVATO, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- August 23, 2005 -- AccountMate Software Corporation, a leading provider of customizable accounting software, announced today that the release of version 6.5 for LAN of its award-winning AccountMate accounting software system has had a very positive reception by dealers and users alike.

AccountMate 6.5 for Local Area Networks (LAN) is a real-time, fully customizable accounting solution with 15 individual modules, and is specifically designed to address the unique and fast-changing needs of small to medium-sized customers.

With thousands of customers already using AccountMate 6.5 for SQL and AccountMate 6.5 for MSDE, the LAN version is directed at small to medium-sized businesses whose existing needs can be fulfilled with a LAN-based accounting solution. It allows these clients to grow and continue using this system or to eventually upgrade to an SQL-based business management software system. In either case, the system can be modified as necessary to match the changing needs of the business because modifiable source code is available as an option.

"AccountMate 6.5 for LAN is great news for my prospective clients with fast-changing, but still emerging businesses," said Kevin Stroud, president and CEO of NexLAN, a premier AccountMate Business Partner in Danville, Illinois. "These same clients will require an accounting solution that can upgrade on a dime to a very robust mid-market business management solution. That's the beauty of being able to offer AccountMate's version 6.5 in LAN, MSDE and SQL editions, with a single familiar interface among the three versions, and enough flexibility via source code customizability to last the lifetime of a business."

AccountMate 6.5 for LAN offers small to medium-sized businesses improved information reporting, and helps increase user productivity at all levels of the client's business. In addition, AccountMate 6.5 for LAN better automates routine processing functions, including bank reconciliation, intercompany transaction posting, and inventory forecasting models to further streamline and improve routine business functions.

"AccountMate 6.5 for LAN is the direct result of requests from AccountMate Business Partners for an emerging business version of AccountMate 6.5," said David Dierke, president and CEO of AccountMate. "In turn, our valued Business Partner channel is responding to increasing demand from smaller businesses that have high expectations for their future growth. These businesses want a right-sized accounting solution that will literally grow along with them. For these prospective new customers, we're very pleased to offer AccountMate 6.5 for LAN."

AccountMate 6.5 for LAN now includes comprehensive data management and administrative features that both demystify and help facilitate more effective system management. By using the same interface across all products lines, user training is streamlined if a client chooses to upgrade.
