PERPETUALBUDGET V4.0 CONSOLIDATES
Lodi, CA Spicer-Baer Associates, Inc. has released
PerpetualBudget v4.0, a distributed budgeting solution for Windows that
features a full function, seamless XML interface to Intuit's QuickBooks (all
US versions). This enhances the built-in file based data interface that
generically supports any accounting program.
"We had released a version of PerpetualBudget earlier this year that supports
the QuickBooks XML interface.", said Jim Spicer, Chief Technologist at SBA,
Inc. "A customer was evaluating this release and asked if we could support
consolidated financials for multiple company files. The requirement is to
first create a master budget structure from a number of separate company
files. Then all budget operations requiring data from the accounting program
receives them without any manual operations. The outcome is v4.0 which
implements a drag and drop master budget structure from multiple company
files. This is definitely a market driven release," Mr. Spicer stated, "and
the seamless data flow between programs greatly improves user productivity. We
are seeing an increasing number of more demanding budgeting requirements from
QuickBooks customers and we intend to support them."
PerpetualBudget runs in Windows, supports team management and produces all the
traditional financial reports for budgeting, forecasting and planning. The
program provides an Auto-Configure mode for QuickBooks applications that
creates the required data structures in PerpetualBudget automatically based on
the configurations in QuickBooks company files.
Also new in the v4.0 release is support for free-form Excel calculation
spreadsheets. The program provides drill-down capabilities for wages, capital
and expenses. Spicer had these comments; "It's impossible for us to create
templating for every budgeting task. And more templating increases the burden
on customers to learn our design rules. We're focused on automating the higher
level reports like P & L, Cash Flow and the Balance Sheet. These routines can
re-create the system when data or organizations change. This puts the heavy
lifting burden of repetitive, structure driven tasks on the program. Customers
can interface their existing Excel spreadsheets into the system in minutes and
rollup specialized calculation schemes where they want them in the budget
