How Accounting Software Developer Acclivity Makes Accounting Simple

Accounting software developer Acclivity knows that progress comes from a place of major change. Born from a company established in the 1980s, co-founders Scott Davisson and Tom Nash teamed up in 2005 to form Acclivity as it is known today. And they’ve been pretty busy for the last decade.

Point of Sale for Mac, AccountEdge Canada, AccountEdge Mobile, AccountEdge Cloud, Rerun … Acclivity has harnessed the power of their platforms to create a diverse set of accounting solutions to meet the needs of their clients.

So when they connected with Forte about integrating payments into their software solutions, Acclivity saw the immense potential they could offer their customers.

As co-founder Scott Davisson notes of the times before Acclivity’s integration with Forte, “Before working with Forte, any merchants accepting payments on orders or invoices were doing so outside of our accounting system.” This was a problem for Davisson and his team, as it slowed down processing power and efficiency for his clients. He states, “Our customers wanted to streamline their sales process and fully integrate payment processing into their workflow. The integration with Forte’s tools created a seamless, integrated solution.”

“The integration with Forte’s tools created a seamless, integrated solution.”

Integrating payments into your software solution can be a game-changer and solve fundamental pain points for your customers. “The integration quantifiably saves time, but beyond that, it generates a better customer experience for our users’ customers,” Davisson says. By offering an integrated payment solution through their software, the Acclivity team was able to elevate their brand and processes, increasing customer loyalty and adding higher-level capabilities for their client base.

There are several benefits to partnering with a payment solution like what Forte offers. Through integrating payments, you can offer clients a robust solution to accept recurring or one-time payments on ACH or credit cards — not to mention a secure platform that offers the highest PCI compliance in the industry.

As Davisson tells us, “Our goal is always to provide resource-challenged small businesses with cost-effective tools that drive both efficiency and growth. If we’re successful, it’s a win/win.”

A win/win, indeed.
