A cloud-based accounting programme aimed at startups and small businesses has been unveiled by Pastel Software Zimbabwe.
Sage Pastel My Business Online will go live on March 12 after already proving popular in South Africa and Cyprus. It was the first such solution in South Africa.
Rob Watson, Pastel Software Zimbabwe Managing Director, said: “Instead of keeping your accounts on your computer and having to transfer them via a flash disk or other device to work on them at home, your accounts are kept ‘in the cloud’, that is on a web-site, in the same way as information is kept on Facebook and other similar sites.
“That means they are always accessible to you, as long as you have an Internet connection. The data is secure, possibly more secure than being kept on the office computer.”
The software is described as an “entry-level web-based accounting system” and aims to make it easy for companies to manage invoices, receipts, returns and payments.
There is no installation needed or updates, and consumers can simply log on to begin using the programme.
