System Features and Personalisation
Familiar and fluent
ABM tightly integrates with Microsoft Office to streamline the running of your business, including sharing task lists, calendar events and contacts with Microsoft Outlook. The layout and operation is a familiar style, reducing considerable staff training time and learning curve.
Two sizes fit all
ABM has been built to manage businesses from 1 to 100+ users and an unlimited turnover handling ability. ABM is available in two editions, Enterprise and Small Business, both providing the same comprehensive high-end accounting system for businesses of different structures and budgets.
Assistance when you need it
ABM provides expert support services to our users through our solution providers across Australia, New Zealand, Ireland and the UK. Every support issue is dealt with speed and courtesy regardless of the issue. With every solution provider expertly trained, you can trust that all issues will be resolved with absolute professionalism when you need it.
Customisation and industry solutions
ABM provides you with the choice of Optional Modules to fit your business needs. These range from specific industry tools to advanced accounting functions, which attach directly to the base accounting system for effortless single-entry workflow. The core accounting system is available in Inventory and Job Costing versions or both. Further bespoke options are available on request.
ABM grows with you
ABM is designed to accommodate a growing business, handling any number of companies and currencies. ABM suits most business types through the depth of its core accounting system’s open architecture and expandability.
ABM can be used in up to ten different countries worldwide, with tax and legislation for each country. Be assured that you are running your business with an international software package.
This is integrated across all modules. ABM handles any number of currencies, with or without decimals, and caters for foreign currency banking.
Business Bulletins allow management to view a summary of the business’s health and wealth through data tables and graphs. Bulletins can be viewed on demand or can be automatically created and emailed at specified intervals.
Keep on top of your business with automatic email alerts for events such as credit, budget or job estimate limits being exceeded as well as overdue customer alerts. This reduces the time needlessly spent on keeping track of crucial information and controlling financial responsibilities.
“One click” transfers of data to Microsoft Excel
Whenever a list of information is being displayed in ABM, a Microsoft Excel button will appear at the top of the screen allowing “one click” transfers of data to Excel with data organisation intact.
Customers, suppliers, jobs, products and ledger accounts may be viewed concurrently inside of ABM. This allows the user to work with multiple areas of accounting at once, providing all information required for a particular task.
Choose your look
Users have the freedom to choose from a range of Microsoft Office style navigation bars and colour scheme “skins” for customising their ABM environment.
Email documents and statements
Integration of Microsoft Office allows for emailing within ABM. A range of items may be sent from ABM including invoices, product information and customer statements. The 'mail manager' is used for handling of outgoing email functions such as composing, merging, automatically creating mailing lists.
Variable trading terms
Set variable trading terms to individual customers and suppliers and become flexible in the way your business deals with external parties.
Robust, fast database
ABM uses the Microsoft SQL Server/MSDE database engine for superior reliability and performance with added security to your company’s data.
SQL Server maintenance
Users of both SQL Express and full SQL Server can set up a housekeeping plan, which ensures that database performance is optimum within the limits of their hardware.
Third party software plugins
Need a specific business solution? With an open architecture, ABM encourages third party software solutions to plug directly into the accounting system to provide an integrated solution with effortless workflow. Expand ABM with additional functions to benefit your business.
