|The new ManagePLUS
for QuickBooks™ is now available for public testing!
Some of you have waited a long time for a new release of ManagePLUS
for QuickBooks, and it gives us great pleasure to tell you that it's
finally here!...well, almost. A pre-release
version of ManagePLUS for QuickBooks, version 2, is now
available for public testing.
The new ManagePLUS is not in "final
form" yet...there's still a lot to do. For instance, there's no Help
system yet and some of the reports are not yet available. But the
pre-release version is a full-working copy of ManagePLUS, with a
substantial part of the features we expect to release in the commercial
"Why have a pre-release
version?" We felt it important to get ManagePLUS out early to
some of you who will be using the product, to get your comments and
impressions as ManagePLUS moves toward its full commercial release. Also,
a public testing period will help iron out any remaining problems and
bugs before ManagePLUS is released to a wider audience.
What to give ManagePLUS a try?
Start at the ManagePLUS
home page on our Web site. It has a Tester's Questions &
Answers section that will help you get started. Or, ou can also go directly to the ManagePLUS
Downloads page, but please don't miss the ManagePLUS supporting information
pages, as described below.
By the way in case you're wondering, this announcement is being made
to our newsletter subscribers. While anyone may download and try
ManagePLUS during the test period, you're getting the news first...which
means you'll have the first opportunity to tell us what you think!

Site Changes for the New ManagePLUS
Over the next few weeks we will be entirely reworking the ManagePLUS-related
areas of our Web site. At the moment many pages have an "UNDER
CONSTRUCTION" message on them. When you see that, it means the page
is currently a "place holder" for more information to come.
We ask for your patience, as this area of our Web site will be
undergoing many changes in a short period of time.
all of the new pages under construction, though. Some "have their
sleeves rolled up" and are already hard at work. The new ManagePLUS
Videos & Tutorials Library already contains Flash movies
describing the new ManagePLUS. These videos are especially important
right now, since the pre-release version of ManagePLUS has no Help
Until more documentation (Help, videos, etc.) is available, we will be
leaving the old ManagePLUS for QuickBooks version 1 pages on our Web
site. Those are useful for getting details about the concepts involved in
ManagePLUS, most of which apply fully to the new version.
We have even added more ManagePLUS version 1 information on our site.
The complete ManagePLUS User's Guide (for version 1) is now
available as a .PDF file download from the ManagePLUS

what will ManagePLUS Cost?
This is an obvious question, but we cannot yet provide a firm
answer. Pricing won't be announced until the commercial release
is imminent, which may be within a few weeks. Here's what we can
- ManagePLUS licenses bought during the early-bird buying period
(about the first 90 days after ManagePLUS is released for sale) will
qualify for a significant discount.
- Anyone who holds a license for another Flagship Technologies
software product (FormCalc,
or the old ManagePLUS version 1) will qualify for an additional
discount during the early-bird buying period--even more than other
early bird buyers.
