UK software company,, is celebrating its entry into the big-time as its products are launched in Staples stores nationally, after mainly being sold through on-line retailers.

Initially offered a one month promotion of one product, Director Quentin Pain, was thrilled to hear that they are now going straight to ranging three of the titles.

The three selected products are Personal Accounts – Home edition, Personal Accounts – Small Business Bookkeeping and Personal Accounts for Students. Personal Accounts – Home Edition has to face up to some stiff competition but Quentin is confident of success, “this software has been extremely popular, and won a Gold Award from PC Home for its accessibility and usefulness, so I don’t doubt it will start flying off the shelves now it is so readily available. The small business version is so easy to set up and use, compared with some of the alternatives, that people just love it.”

“The Student edition is a first and there are no other products doing quite the same thing…it should be on every students ‘must-buy’ list, although we think that quite a few parents will want to buy a copy to be sure! The whole aim is to help students control their money and come out at the end of their studies with a degree but without a massive debt.

“We are proud as the product reviewing and Quality Control by Staples is stringent. The whole team has worked really hard and I can’t quite believe it is all finally happening! ”

“a breath of fresh air…user friendly and not Microsoft…brilliant!” E-bay feedback (Personal Accounts).


Notes for editors makes a fantastic case-study for turning a micro-business into a major player! It is a UK company based in Cambridgeshire and the Managing Director and Marketing Manager are available for interviews and both have a fascinating work history. The software has been developed and improved over a number of years by the MD, who decided a couple of years ago to stop being a ‘small-ad in the computer mags’ supplier and launch a larger company with the aim of competing internationally within the next year or so. He found a financial backer, opened an office, recruited staff (including going all the way to Poland to find his programmer as he couldn’t find the necessary level of skill in the UK) and is taking on the big boys.

Personal Accounts is a range of software that includes Personal Accounts for Students, Personal Accounts Home, Personal Accounts Small Business, and Personal Accounts Education (for those training in accountancy).
