Partner Watch, August 23

Aderant announces the upcoming release of its .NET-based Back Office financial management solution.

Aderant, a global provider of business and financial management software for professional services organizations, yesterday announced the upcoming release of its financial and practice management solution, Aderant Back Office (formerly CMS.Net). Aderant RANT Back Office Release 7.0 includes a new user interface and enhanced functionality. The general availability of Aderant Back Office will coincide with the release of Microsoft SQL Server 2005 in November.

This latest version also aligns Aderant Back Office more closely with the Microsoft .NET Web services-based integration architecture as well as Microsoft Office user interface standards.

"Aderant Back Office Release 7.0 represents a significant improvement to our leading practice management system and a major milestone in our strategy to leverage advanced technologies from Microsoft," said Michael J. Simmons, chief executive officer of Aderant. "We listened closely to our customers and the CMS User Group Inc. Enhancement Committee and used their input as the centerpiece of our development efforts. We also made significant progress in re-architecting our solution on Microsoft .NET and introducing powerful new technologies that will benefit our clients."
