This product has been discontinued and is no longer available for purchase. Cougar Mountain is continuing to support this program, however, they are not actively selling new versions of the software. Cougar Mountain Software recommends you consider Denali Business+Accounting in substitution.

CMS Professional Accounting is an integrated set of accounting software modules that allow you make informed financial decisions by helping you:

  • Manage your cash flow
  • Monitor your profitability
  • Track your inventory
  • Create custom reports

Though the package includes six core modules, a suite of optional add-on modules, including bank reconciliation and payroll, allow you to customize your software to help you manage your business better.

Each module is integrated with the others so when a transaction is completed, the other modules are automatically adjusted to reflect the change. This will not only save you time and employee costs, the accuracy of your financial records will significantly improve. And with security access authored into each module, audit trails cannot be altered.

AaTrix State and Federal Forms

Cougar Mountain has partnered with Aatrix, a provider of payroll tax forms, to offer a solution for preparing state and federal payroll forms. Aatrix forms integrate with Cougar Mountain software data to instantly prepare payroll forms, populate fields, and offer printing and electronic filing options. Updates include changes to federal and state payroll tax forms as well as enhancement to the software program.

Accounts Payable

Getting your payables out on time with accuracy is a key to long term business survival and Accounts Payable takes all the worry out of paying your bills. High level cash management features make sure you never pay a bill too early or too late and that you always know when you can take advantage of early payment discounts. Accounts Payable turns your payables into another profit center.

Accounts Receivable

Never let a receivable slip through the cracks again! Accounts Receivable manages all outstanding receivables with user-defined aging periods, dunning notices, and collection statements. You can easily set up credit limits for specified customers to ensure payment and limit risk.

Advanced Bill of Materials

No need to post inventory adjustment transactions that subtract the individual components and subkits from inventory and then add the finished goods to inventory.

Bank Reconciliation is a powerful self-audit module that reconciles bank statements with actual checks and deposits.
