In the second of a series of FSN Video Reports, Gary Simon, managing editor of FSN looks in depth at the way that Mamut Software handles the ‘Quote to Cash Cycle’. Last October Microsoft suddenly announced that it was no longer marketing Microsoft Office Accounting and arranged for Mamut, an international software house with more than 400,000 users in the UK to take over support. However, this has left many users of Microsoft Office Accounting with a dilemma - Do you stay with Microsoft Office Accounting (which is unlikely to be developed further) or do you upgrade to Mamut?
In Part 1 of this Video Report Gary Simon introduced Mamut and provides a high level comparison with Microsoft Office Accounting, looking at its flexible user interface, its contact management system and e-commerce capability. In this video, Gary takes an in depth look at the way that processes can be tailored to meet requirements using the sales order processing functionality as an example. He then goes on to examine the detail of the inventory management system and discount structures which are very distinct from the limited functionality in Microsoft Office Accounting. The final video in the series, will take readers through the migration process from Microsoft Office Accounting to Mamut including the use of the automatic migration utility that Mamut have developed to quickly take your data across to their software.
