Document management and workflow provider Cabinet NG has unveiled the latest version of CNG-Books 6.0, its document management system designed for Intuit's QuickBooks.

Incorporating .Net technology and Microsoft SQL database features, CNG-Books 6.0 gives small and midsized businesses the ability to replace piles of paper with automated electronic workflows that streamline QuickBooks-centric accounting tasks.

In January, the company released CNG-Safe 6.0 using the new technology. Now users of CNG-Books are able to access the same functionality.

Use of the .Net platform in CNG-Books 6.0 enables Windows-based applications to integrate more easily with other networked systems. Because CNG-Books was developed to work with Intuit's QuickBooks, it has the ability to streamline data entry and document filing into one electronic process working with CNG-Safe, the company's document management and workflow software, to unite QuickBooks transactions with business documents.

"This really gives accounting firms a powerful tool to work with," said James True, vice president of business development at Cabinet NG. "A lot of accounting firms are doing the books for multiple clients. Now they are able to with much better performance."

New features include support for multiple methods of document import. Users now have the option of scanning in documents, importing documents from any accessible external file directory, or opening documents already filed in the CNG-Safe system. The system now integrates with CNG-Safe security and retention policies for applying document access rights and/or retention periods from the CNG-Books entry screen.

Users can now open transaction documents or generate a list of all the documents filed in CNG-Safe directly from within QuickBooks Canada 2008 for the desired transaction, customer or vendor. Company setups are now managed globally through Microsoft SQL to eliminate the need to manually set up each user's PC, improving performance by preloading account lists from QuickBooks during startup. Items and expenses can be quickly added by the user. Expanded integration with QuickBooks facilitates creating purchase orders and applying payments to multiple invoices directly within CNG-Books.
