Beckware LLC, publisher of AcctVantage ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning), the Enterprise Software for Small Business©, is pleased to mark AcctVantage ERP’s 20th year of serving the small business community. Restylers’ Choice ( is a manufacturer and distributor of automotive accessories and has been an AcctVantage ERP user since 1997. Doug Jacobs, president of Restylers’ says, “We’ve grown from a $750,000 a year company to over $8MM annually with AcctVantage ERP as the backbone of our operations. Seeing the progress of the system over the years has really helped me reinforce my decision to partner with AcctVantage.”

Dan Beckett, president of Beckware LLC says, “We love to tell our customers’ stories. Their success is our success. Whether it’s a one man shop or a 50-user site, we give small businesses the tools they need to succeed.”

AcctVantage ERP began its long run in 1987 as ‘A4, accounting software for the rest of us.’ Its early focus was on flexibility and extreme ease of use with the goal of making professional-grade, double-entry accounting manageable for regular people.

In its infancy, the software was available only on the Macintosh operating system. 1997 brought the release of a cross-platform version and the product today continues to fully support both the Macintosh OS and Windows.

For many years, A4 was a successful launching pad for industry specific customizations across the US. A4 became ‘Foresight Financials’ in 1998 and gained world-class inventory management functionality formerly available only in much more expensive software.

In 2003, the software became ‘AcctVantage ERP’ and the focus changed from customization to a commercial application with full accounting, CRM (Customer Relationship Management) and MRP (Materials Resource Planning) functions. AcctVantage ERP is priced competitively to support small businesses with enterprise business needs.
