ACTIVE SOFTWARE announces the release of EuroConverter, a powerful utility to convert local currencies into the Euro, the new European currency.
EuroConverter can be used with any application - databases (FileMaker, 4D, etc.), spreadsheets or any other application capable of generating a tab delimited file.
EuroConverter was developed by Active Software using RealBasic, the popular Macintosh OS based development environment.
EuroConverter makes converting large archives of information an easy process. The conversion ratio is easily controlled in the application preferences. For example, a FileMaker can contain some fields with values which need to be converted from your local currency into Euros. The conversion is easily done in three simple steps - Export, convert with EuroCoverter and finally reimport. EuroCoverter supports batch conversion of multiple files and can be fully automated through the use of AppleEvents.
"This program is designed to simplify the transition to Euro, the new currency which will be used all over Europe", said Livio Valdemarin, president of Active Software. "It is an ideal tool for small companies who cannot afford enterprise level solutions for Europe's 'Euro-2K' problem".
A single user license is priced at US$20. A Site License costs US$250, while a World-Wide License is priced at US$400. Active Software is providing a trial version at their web site. EuroConverter is available in English and Italian and is currently a Mac-only app. The company says that a Windows version as well as German and French translations, are in the works.
