Reckon Ups “Cloudifying” Effort
Accounting software provider Reckon – No. 3 Down Under after MYOB and Xero – says it has acquired perpetual licences to the source code for two cloud-based applications, as it seeks to “cloudify” its core accounting operations.
The source codes are from Pose, an Israeli Web-based point-of-sale system provider and New Zealand’s Micromanager, a mobile-based time tracker.
“The days of being tied to the cash register and fumbling about with dollars and coins are moving behind us, “Reckon CEO Clive Rabie said, referring to the Pose system.
“We are already seeing more retailers, especially in the food and beverage space, taking orders on iPads, and that’s exactly what we are facilitating. There needs to be a good and uninterrupted flow of data between a business PoS and accounting platform, to enable a seamless transactional experience.”
He said MicroManager technology offers a cloud- and mobile-based timesheet application that enables accountants to capture “time on the go”. And he added: “There are now more people working from anywhere and on any device, so an app like this is really going to assist with how the Australian workforce is shifting and evolving.”
