ACCPAC is set to demonstrate its Arabised financial solutions at Gitex 2001 as it attempts to make life easier for the Middle East's accountants.

In addition, the company will be unveiling its multi-tier architecture, Advantage Series 5.0. The end-to-end financial solution supports five industry-leading databases and three operating systems, in addition to wireless and CRM capabilities.

ACCPAC Arabic will allow accountants who prefer to work in their mother tongue to customise their own language interface, regardless of the diversity of tongues used within offices.

"If a company has French, English and Arabic accountants and users, each can choose his preferred language within the same office, and yet, obtain financial statements in a common language," says Marc Van der Ven, regional manager of ACCPAC.

"The uniqueness in ACCPAC is that it brings growth opportunities to software development in the region, especially where country-specific Arabisation and localisation is concerned," adds Yahia Beasha, general manager of CATS, a leading Jordan-based ACCPAC solution provider and development partner.

The company's Advantage Series 5.0 will also debut in Arabic as ACCPAC ensures that companies in the region are no longer restricted to the English language when choosing an internationally accredited financial solution.

This Arabisation, Van der Ven says, also makes it easier for auditors to do their job, especially in countries where international accounting standards are applied.

"ACCPAC solutions are based on international accounting standards, yet even in countries where these are yet to be implemented, the Arabised version of ACCPAC modules are a breakthrough as they can be customised according to the needs of individual companies," says Van der Ven.

Translation of the financial modules is completed by ACCPAC's architecture as it adds "language files" with reference codes. "The open and layered architecture of ACCPAC solutions allows us to customise the interface to address the needs of each region we operate in," adds Van der Ven.
