Fargo, N.D. (Dec. 10, 2002)– Microsoft Business Solutions launched the latest edition of its small business accounting product Thursday, offering a product to compete with Quickbooks, Intuit’s market leader.
Small Business Manager 7.0 offers streamlined sales and purchasing with inventory functionality; tighter inventory control; tight fiscal control; and enhanced integration – allowing data to be easily imported and exported to Excel and other applications.
Estimated retail prices begin at $995 (U.S.) for single users and $2,495 for multiple (up to five concurrent) users. A U.S. payroll add-on suite is available for $500.
“Throughout the development process of Small Business Manager 7.0, we gathered feedback and suggestions from our partner network and a wide variety of small businesses. We made their priorities our priorities,” said Jonathan Weinstein, director of small business product management at Microsoft Business Solutions. “The result is a solution with the flexibility and power small businesses need to succeed in an increasingly challenging marketplace.”
