Microsoft on Monday released a public beta of the next version of its small business accounting software, adding useful integration with the popular online selling, payment, and credit advisory services eBay, PayPal, and Equifax. You can download the beta of Microsoft Office Accounting 2007 from Microsoft’s site. Be prepared to wait, even if you’re on broadband, and don’t bother if you’re on dial-up: It’s a 370MB file.
The program has undergone numerous modifications, including a name change, since its formal debut last year as Microsoft Office Small Business Accounting 2006. I took a look at the beta before it was released.
Hit the link for the beta review, but the integration with online services seems to be rather slick. No word on the final release date.
