Avanquest: Continuing to Make PC Based Software & Tools Relevant

It’s easy to get caught up in “Web 2.0” and forget that at the end of the day it’s still simple computer programs that make the lives of millions of businesses more productive. Avanquest Software is marketed in over 100 countries and is a leading producer of business productivity software. It recently announced a new line of software:

System Suite 7 Professional, its most powerful and comprehensive PC security, diagnostics and maintenance solution ever and Bookkeeper 2007, its all-in-one financial management solution for the small office/home office (SOHO) market.
What does this mean to you
If you are looking for low cost and highly productive software Avanquest has a wide range of solutions for you.
Although Windows has a variety of built in tools, they are not as comprehensive as System Suite 7 Professional. The latest version of System Suite offers a highly effective multi-layered shield against viruses, malware and hacker attacks, an enhanced user interface for simpler navigation and a wide array of innovative PC performance enhancement tools. In addition to security and routine PC maintenance, System Suite 7 features a complete schedule of preventive measures for diagnosing hardware problems, system clean-up and registry optimization.
As part of its multi-layered approach to PC security, System Suite 7 also includes a NetDefense dual-layer firewall designed to block intrusions from spyware, adware, worm viruses and Trojans often encountered though routine web surfing or network access. For additional protection, NetDefense continually monitors a PC’s ports to ensure viruses are not transferred by devices like digital music and video players, jump drives, external hard-drives and networked devices.
Bookkeeper 2007
Although just today Microsoft launched Office Accounting Express 2007 for free, it’s not going to be for everyone.
Incorporating a redesigned user interface that provides all pertinent information on one screen – including pending checks and invoices to print, payables due, receivables and bank account balances – Bookkeeper 2007’s new version offers enhancements that enable businesses to: Easily and quickly record payments of company bills made with credit/debit cards; Design and print custom expense and payroll checks; Avoid product stock depletion with inventory warnings from the program’s invoice screen; Create invoices and estimates that can be printed or emailed with the PDF export tool.
With over 115 analytical report templates, users can easily track accounts payables, receivables, payroll expenses, quarterly and annual earnings, sales figures and more. Best of all, these reports can be saved and printed for future analysis or comparison with past results.
