Seamless integration with Quicken was a critical goal for the software development team at Spb Software House. “We had a straight-forward goal when it came to synchronization”, says CTO Vassili Philippov, “in that we wanted the customer to be able to put their Pocket PC in the cradle, and be finished with the process. No imports or exports, no complicated procedures. Seamless and simple – that was our goal.”. When Spb Finance Quick Edition is installed, an ActiveSync conduit is also installed. This conduit handles the background synchronization of Quicken accounts, transactions, categories, classes, memorized transactions, and budgets.
Spb Finance Quick Edition retains all the powerful features of Spb Finance, including a powerful register view, transactions splits, customizable auto-complete, reports, budgets, customizable categories and classes, and data encryption. Multiple currencies are supported, as is a Today-screen plug-in that allows for quick, at-a-glance data, and an additional layer of protection using AES (Rijndael) encryption is offered through password-protection.
Spb Finance Quick Edition is available for immediate purchase for US$19.95. Existing users of Spb Finance or Spb Quick can upgrade to Spb Finance Quick Edition for US$9.95 USD.
Spb Finance Quick Edition is initially available in English, and by February 2004 there will be German, French, Italian, Spanish, and Russian versions released. It has been tested with English and German versions of Quicken 2001 and later, and should work with other versions of Quicken in localized languages (though these are not officially supported).
