Solomon Software to roll out SQL-based accounting software
By Maria Seminerio

  Solomon Software Inc. will release a SQL-based version of its middle-market accounting software package, Solomon IV for Windows.

The software, built with Microsoft Corp.'s Visual Basic, will roll out by the end of this month and will enable users to view reports anywhere in the world using standard World Wide Web browsers.

The product is aimed at companies with 20 to 500 employees, a market where Solomon's main competitor is Great Plains Software, said Solomon CEO Gary Harpst. Company officials believe Solomon IV will have a leg up on competing offerings that are based on proprietary technologies, Harpst said.

Next year, the company will introduce a suite of Internet and intranet products including Solomon IV WebMerchant, an electronic storefront utility that works with Microsoft's Merchant Server; Solomon IV Tools for Visual Basic Web Edition, for developing Web applications; and the Solomon IV Internet Application Server agent and process server.

Solomon, based in Findlay, Ohio, can be reached at www.solomon.com/.
