ConnectBooks is a great free app that allows you to do the kind of accounting using Sage Peachtree that was previously only accessible via a desktop computer. It is a fully featured app that is extremely easy to set up, although there is also help on the developer’s Website if you get stuck.
You can sync your information up to three times a day(and just once for free users), which I feel is a slight downside, as I am sure fast moving businesses would prefer more frequent sync options. The addition of turn by turn navigation so staff can get to customers quickly is an incredibly good idea, and a good use of the iPhone’s features. I should point out that the appp is also available for iPad and Android.
ConnectBooks for Sage 50-U.S. Edition (formerly Sage Peachtree) enables you to access your accounting information from anywhere using any Apple or Android mobile devices. You can review your accounts, browse customers, vendors, and even generate custom financial reports.
ConnectBooks features strict built-in multi-level security that allows you to define different levels of access among authenticated users, giving you power over who sees your information. Lost? Your field staff can easily locate customer and vendor addresses, and even get turn-by-turn directions right on your mobile device! With ConnectBooks, your accounting data is fully secure at all times because we protect your information with multiple layers of the toughest encryption available. ConnectBooks supports most versions of Sage 50-U.S. Edition including 2013.
