Novato, Calif. (April 1, 2002) -- Accounting software vendor Accountmate Software has added manufacturing management capabilities to its flagship Visual Accountmate line by forming an alliance with Everest Manufacturing Software, a specialist in manufacturing management systems.

The two vendors have already created a link for Accountmate and Everest's technology that yields what they call "a seamlessly integrated business management and manufacturing solution." The alliance also provides Everest with the selling power of Accountmate's approximately 3,000 partner-resellers, many of whom are accountants or are affiliated with accounting firms.

The resellers gain access to important technology, as Accountmate estimates that more than 40 percent of its customers are in the manufacturing sector. Everest's solutions track and manage the manufacturing production cycle from the receipt of raw materials, through the production process to finished goods.

St. Clair Shores, Mich.-based Everest develops solutions for the following manufacturing sectors: discreet, make to order, make to stock, light assembly, and process. Accountmate said training in Everest's systems will be made available to its resellers.
