OpenAir Integrates with Peachtree Accounting Software

Opens the Doors of Professional Services Automation to Peachtree Users

Boston (October 26, 2000) - OpenAir, a Web-native professional services automation suite with over 40,000 users, today announced the expansion of its import and export capabilities to support data exchange with the Peachtree® Complete Accounting system. OpenAir users and Peachtree customers can now access features unique to both applications without retyping client or project data, giving Peachtree's customers the ability to tap into the OpenAir sophisticated suite of integrated professional service modules.

Peachtree users can utilize OpenAir to manage their information backbone, supporting projects from Proposals to Project Tracking, Time Bills, Time Sheets and Expense Reports. OpenAir conveniently enables mobile professionals to capture time and expense data from remote locations via any Internet enabled computer, Palm Pilot or WAP-enabled phone, then export that information into Peachtree. Company data such as clients, projects, vendors and inventory items can flow from Peachtree into OpenAir, extending the functionality of the Peachtree system and making it more flexible and accessible.

"By linking the convenience and speed of the OpenAir PSA suite to the rich accounting functionality of Peachtree, we have provided small- to medium-sized businesses with a comprehensive information management solution," said Bill O'Farrell, CEO and Co-Founder of OpenAir.

Currently, the entire suite of OpenAir services, including integration with Peachtree, OpenAir OffLine™ thin client, OpenAir Wireless and OpenAir for the Palm Computing® platform is free for the first user in an account and each additional user pays only $9.95 per month.
