A book manufacturer has made a £50,000 investment in bespoke accountancy software company Fourfront. Butler and Tanner, a Somerset based company, but with offices in New York, Paris and Munich, produces 30 million books a year and has taken the share because Fourfront manufactures copyright accountancy software, and other financial offerings. David Mills, the finance manager at the book company, said that it needed to upgrade its packages for two reasons. The first, he said, was to ensure it was Year 2000 compliant but he also complained that the existing software his company used would not integrate with other of its products. He said he did not want duplication, “or even triplication” of functions on a daily basis. Fourfront has 600 users in the UK including Halifax Estate Agencies, the Fire Brigades Union, the British Horse Society and Gloucestershire Health Society.
