Best Software Partners with Innovision to bring OFX to Its Peachtree® Accounting Small Business Customers
Peachtree customers will benefit from increased automation and online banking capabilities

Atlanta, GA (March 14, 2005) - Best Software today announced that it has licensed Innovision’s OFX Client Software Developer’s Kit Technology to embed in its Peachtree Accounting product line, beginning with Peachtree 2006, which will ship later this year.

"We’ve listened to our customers, and are looking forward to introducing OFX functionality for them in Peachtree 2006," said Jim Portner, vice president, product management. "The addition of online banking will add further flexibility to the Peachtree line and presents a significant potential time savings for our busy small business customers."

The new OFX functionality in Peachtree 2006 will provide small businesses using the product with the ability to seamlessly download bank statements and other financial information into Peachtree to further automate accounting processes, saving time and eliminating the need for manual entry of banking data.

"As a leading software developer for small and medium-sized businesses supporting the OFX protocol, Best Software has expanded the key role OFX is playing to foster the efficient ’direct’ relationships that consumers seek," said Bill Cary, Innovision CEO. "We applaud this commitment to the vision of OFX as an open and reusable technology in the financial services sector."
