Open Architecture

Open Architecture

The choice of the specific RDBMS provides unlimited possibilities for interconnection through other applications such Reporting & Analyzing Tools (Crystal Reports, Report Server, Excel ...), as well as simple management tools like MS Access or even Visual Studio development.

The core of our accounting platform is designed so it can work as "Server / Client" architecture, where application plays the role of the "Server" for central registration and auditing of accounting records that "Client" applications produce. For this reason it provides COM ActiveX interface to external applications so they can connect directly or remotely to its capabilities.

Accounts & sub-accounts

Accounts & sub-accounts

Chart of accounts organization is based on an innovative technique that does not require uniform formation for account codes. The potential of formation of all underlying 2nd level accounts independent from others supports the easy adaptation of the chart of accounts to virtually any type of enterprise.

Extending the technique by the concept of sub-accounts, that essentially -but not exclusively- concerns customers and suppliers, and detaching them from the chart of accounts, we render them as a standalone module that cooperates directly with the chart.

 

 

These two innovative features make the Sword platform adaptable to every situation and need, while giving the user complete freedom of choice and flexibility in the chart of accounts organization.

«Sword» roots

Through our experience in developing accounting and financial applications for various sized companies (IBM hellas, Makedonian Spinning and others), we developed the expertise to create an accounting platform that entailed innovative and unique features.

Starting from the appearance of «Sword» as a DOS based ledger application in the mid-90s, it continued by the first completely rewritten for windows «WinSword» version in 2001. Once completed with the adaptations and extensions of Maritime bookkeeping and some technological modernization, is now a comprehensive and polymorphic platform. The “Sword” concept was also used when in the meantime we developed, on behalf of IBM Hellas and its clients, the «EMPORIUM/400» accounting application based on the same design and adapted to AS/400 environment.
