Dataflow heads of the competition at the Matcon Group

Matcon Group discard Access, Exchequer, Sage, SAP, Deltek and Epicor, among others, in favour of Dataflow for the power of its Customizer toolkit and programmable ActiveX and XML interfaces

Matcon Limited, who specialize in providing solutions for handling and processing powders, granules, tablets and other materials in Intermediate Bulk Containers has chosen Dataflow (UK) Ltd as the supplier of its business finance system.

Over a period of 20 years Matcon had developed an extensive Job Costing system that was linked to their DOS based accounting system. When they decided they needed to move to a Windows based product, they found that it was not possible to purchase a system that would give them the functionality they required.

Many well known accounting software companies were invited to bid for the business, to provide an accounting system with a Job Costing solution matching the functionality of the existing system. Matcon went through a rigorous selection process and looked at Access, Exchequer, Dataflow, Sage, SAP, Deltek and Epicor, but chose Dataflow because of the power of its Customizer module, its Software Developer's toolkit, which allows dataflow to be adapted without altering the underlying source code.

This module allows you to change or add to the standard screens, and create new user-defined screens. All modifications are automatically re-applied when a new release becomes available. Programmable interfaces using ActiveX and XML are available to external systems for retrieving data, creating and modifying customer accounts, supplier accounts, stock items and other similar data, and for posting accounting, document and stock transactions
