IAS Visual Advance - SBT copy?

IAS Visual Advance - SBT copy?

IAS Visual Advance - SBT copy?

I visited a prospective client today and they run an accounting package called IAS Visual Advance 2002. It has a look and feel very much like SBT. Wondering if anyone has experience with this software. I see the stark website for the manufacturer. It doesn't have a whole lot of info on it.


RE: IAS Visual Advance - SBT copy?

It is not SBT but has some similarities. Both are written in Visual Foxpro. At one point, the IAS people were gunning for disaffected SBT users and wrote a data conversion program to encourage SBTers to switch to Visual Advance. IAS made a big effort to recruit SBT resellers to carry Visual Advance. This was in 2000 - 2001 when SBT had been acquired by ACCPAC International and the SBT reseller channel was in some distress.

It was a strong package at the time. The fact that your prospect has been running it for a decade supports this.
