Accounting Office Software Ltd Releases Report Generator as Free Open Source Software

SWANSEA, 11 February 2009

Accounting Office Software Ltd today releases the source code of its My.N report generator under an open source license.
 
Known as OpenDoor, the reporting software can be used to produce user-editable reports, charts, graphs and drill-down enquiry screens from any SQL database including Microsoft SQL Server and Oracle. It can also be used to integrate reporting functionality into any business application.
 
The reporting software is not limited to Accounting Office Software’s business management and accounts application called My.N, but can be used with any ODBC compliant database.
 
Managing Director Ian Richards comments ‘Developers and resellers are facing a tough trading environment just like everyone else. Providing them with the tools to build solutions to exactly meet the needs of their clients’, means that they can differentiate through innovation and really deliver quality and value for their customers.’
 
Businesses are increasingly looking at ways of keeping a tight control of their cash-flow and stock. Developers and resellers that can provide easy, real-time reporting will be seen as a strategic partner offering a way of making an end-user’s business more efficient, proactive and profitable.
 
'We hope that the developer community will take full advantage of the opportunity of using a powerful resource like this free of charge' says sales manager Jonathan Harris. 'This software provides a massive starting leap for any developer wishing to provide reporting services without paying licence fees to a third party supplier. Afterall, what application doesn't require some form of reporting?'
 
Accounting Office Software Ltd will release a fully integrated My.N specific version of the source code to its resellers on request. For an independent version see Ian Richards’ article at http://www.codeproject.com/KB/miscctrl/Open_Door.aspx

Background for Editors
 
Accounting Office Software Limited is a south Wales based software development house specialising in developing integrated financial and business management packages for small and medium sized businesses. 
 
My.N is a full multi-currency business system and comprises a complete suite of standard accounting and business functions including nominal, purchase and sales ledgers, stock control, sales and purchase order processing, total Euro functionality and Ecommerce.  Unlike other applications in its class, My.N gives the user full control of its user interface allowing them to affect changes to the system at runtime.
 
Recent developments include a web-based version of the software. The unique cloning technology makes all the features of the mature Windows product available through a Web interface; thus allowing simultaneous thick-client and thin-client versions of a user interface to the same application.
