So it seemed like some kind of milestone when Sage Software announced on Monday that they have upgraded the newest version of Peachtree Web Accounting by teaming with Citrix Online and offering a version of Citrix's GoToMyPC called Peachtree Remote Access and a version of their GoToMeeting web conferencing called Peachtree Online Meeting. Now we can be certain that modern collaboration technologies have infiltrated the average small business.
Peachtree is not the first, or the largest accounting software maker to include these types of collaboration tools (QuickBooks has offered remote access for years), just the latest and the most old school.
(Note: To be fair, Peachtree was a little quicker than most in moving to Web-based accounting software in 2001, as explained in this article.)
