This application was originally launched by Microsoft in the UK in late 2007. It was a bookkeeping product aimed at SME businesses, for companies with 25 or fewer employees. Its target market was the area where Sage 50, MYOB and QuickBooks already had a strong hold. There was tight integration with Microsoft Office, specifically Excel, Word and Outlook.
This product wasn't supported by Microsoft for long. On October the 30th, 2009, Microsoft transferred customer support for Microsoft Office Accounting in the UK to Mamut Software Ltd. Product support for Microsoft Office Accounting will continue in accordance with the published Microsoft product support life cycle. Mamut is a long-standing industry partner of Microsoft in the UK and Europe and is a leading supplier of complete, integrated software solutions.
