Minneapolis (Dec. 11, 2003) -- Open Systems Accounting Software users can now have their general ledger, accounts receivable and accounts payable on the go, thanks to a new relationship between software maker Open Systems Inc. and electronics product manufacturer Toshiba.

A two-user version of OSAS is now preloaded onto the Magnia SG30, Toshiba’s wireless network server for small businesses. The Magnia SG30 also offers dual hard drives, a built-in seven-port switch, and a built-in wireless card.

“Since the Magnia SG30 runs on Linux, users will not need special configuration, nor will they need to buy more licenses for networking or database software,” Bill Greenlund, director of server product marketing at Toshiba, said in a statement.

Linux users make up approximately 55 percent of all OSAS users, according to Paul Lundquist, vice president of sales at Open Systems. He said the company had been trying to establish a mobile accounting relationship with Toshiba for the past three years, mostly wrangling over how to distribute the product.

“We finally figured it out and we’re already seeing a lot of interest from our resellers with this product,” Lundquist said.

The Magnia SG30 server sells for approximately $1,400.
