Stonefield Software, Inc. announced that their OEM agreement with Sage for Accpac Query, an end-user database reporting tool, came to an end after an 8 year term. As a result, Stonefield Software has renamed Accpac Query to ‘Stonefield Query for Sage Accpac ERP’ to be consistent with their complete line of custom reporting solutions which also include Stonefield Query for Sage Pro ERP, Stonefield Query for Sage MAS 90 and MAS 200 ERP, and Stonefield Query for Sage SalesLogix CRM.
Stonefield Software is the original developer of Stonefield Query for Sage Accpac ERP which was sold under OEM agreement through the Sage Reseller channel as Accpac Query for nearly a decade. As an add-on database reporting solution, Stonefield Query extends the basic reporting capabilities of Sage Accpac ERP by enabling non-technical staff such as accounting clerks and managers to create custom reports, pivot tables, and charts & graphs in just minutes. The user-friendly tool requires no technical knowledge which means custom reports are generated quickly without waiting on IT staff.
According to Mickey Kupchyk, President of Stonefield Software, “The OEM agreement was beneficial to both parties while it lasted. From Sage’s perspective, Stonefield Query helped to fill a gap in end-user reporting and data mining for their Sage Accpac ERP and Sage Pro ERP products. From our perspective it got our database reporting tool into the hands of thousands of Sage Accpac ERP and Sage Pro ERP customers. Sage handled all of the marketing and sales which allowed us to focus 100% on Stonefield Query development so it can mature into the market-leading database reporting tool that it is today.”
Stonefield Software recently released version 3.2 of Stonefield Query for Sage Accpac ERP and Sage Pro ERP. Version 3.2 added over 100 new features including cross-tabulation, charts, labels, Google Maps, negative queries, analyze database function, support for Vista, and e-mail reports.
Doug Hennig, Vice-president and Chief Technology Officer of Stonefield Software said, “We have a vision … rather than build another database reporting tool geared towards IT professionals, we’ve designed a user-friendly package targeted at the 99% of the population who aren’t technically inclined. We take care of all the hard programming so that the end user can simply pick the information they want and Query will automatically format the output.”
The Stonefield Query SDK (Software Developer’s Kit) is also available to enable Stonefield Query to work with virtually any other database including Oracle, DB2, Microsoft Access, and many others. With the SDK, developers can build custom user-friendly reporting solutions for in-house or commercially deployed applications.
Existing Sage Accpac and Pro ERP customers can purchase Stonefield Query through their Sage Valued Added Reseller (VAR) or directly from Stonefield Software for customers who are not currently aligned with a VAR or Sage business partner.
