Sky Software is a back office suite for accounting firms and despite the different modules for different disciplines is in fact one product that is totally integrated and available to the whole accounting firm. Although totally integrated the software retains the 3 most important back office disciplines of Tax, Secretarial and Time, called SKY TAX, SKY SEC and SKY TIME.
Sky Software retains at a minimum the same functionality as Professional Series but in many instances much much more. In the development of the product we used the concept of less is more which has resulted in a much smaller, intuitive and easier to use program, but adds a whole lot of new modern state of the art functionality. The program works using the concept of workflows which makes it very easy to use.
A SQL database called PostgreSQL which is used in 70% of web and cloud based systems in the world is our SQL database of choice and the programing language is Java. These aspects lends itself to producing an application which is cloud ready and web enabled which can handle an unlimited amount of data.
Sky Software is installed on the server and various terminals across the office can access via browser or smart client (very small Java applet that is downloaded to the terminal). There are no complicated software installations on terminals and users can roll out the software to as many users as they want as we now offer an unlimited licence.
Sky Software will run on any server and any terminal device including tablets (available soon). The software has moved to being total screen based or enquiry based allowing the user to access any aspect that they want, provided they have been given the rights.
Sky Software now runs in the Accfin Cloud or can run on your firms own private cloud or local area network.
