Samsung Electronics, a global leader in digital media and digital convergence technologies, is pleased to announce the release of the Pastel My Business Online app to the local Samsung App Store.
Pastel My Business Online is an online accounting application, now available through an easy to use app on a Samsung smartphone.
While its back-end is as comprehensive as any accounting program, its simplified front-end  dashboard, with graphs and drill-downs of all transactions, makes daily financial management simple for any business owner.
“As the enterprise market continues to grow, businesses require the right technological tools to implement an effective enterprise mobility strategy,” says Paulo Ferreira, head of Enterprise Mobility at Samsung Electronics South Africa.
“At Samsung, we understand this and have therefore placed a strong focus on vertical and horizontal solutions for the enterprise – aimed at enabling a mobile workforce to meet the needs of accessibility, flexibility, efficiency and productivity through smart, innovative technology. Adding the Pastel My Business Online app to our Samsung Apps Store is a natural extension and evolution of this.”
Through the mobile app, businesses can:
* Buy and sell inventory in the palm of their hand – using My Business Online, users can manage their customers, suppliers and inventory items. My Business Online keeps track of sales per customer by item and purchases by supplier by item, allowing users to create customer categories, supplier categories and item categories to analyse sales.
* Get the information they need – providing a bird’s eye view of the business, the dashboard in My Business Online is the quickest and easiest way to get an overview of how the business is doing, no matter where users are.
* Financial security at their fingertips – import bank statements instead of capturing each transaction. What’s more, financials can be accessed and completed by the user or their accountant from anywhere in the world.
“Pastel’s My Business Online provides simple, secure online accounting, giving small and start up business owners the freedom to run their business anywhere, anytime, without any hassles,” says Steven Cohen, MD of Softline Pastel Accounting.
“Softline Pastel’s philosophy has been to allow businesses to drive technology by remaining cognisant of customers’ growing needs and requirements and one such need was to provide a mobile extension of the Web-based service – and this partnership allows us to do exactly that.
“We are certainly excited about this partnership. Pastel is a trusted name in accounting and payroll software, couple this with a consumer electronics company at the forefront of technology that offers an end-to-end business solution – makes for a smart enterprise mobility partnership,” he concludes.
