CYMA Explorations

We're having a great time at CYMA Explorations this year. The flight in was the best kind - uneventful. CYMA Accounting Software opened their 30th anniversary Exploration Conference in Scottsdale, Arizona by releasing CYMA Version 12 and their new CYMA HR Module known as CYMA HR ExPRess. This is a full featured Human Resource Module from CYMA that works in conjunction with their CYMA Payroll module. Included are Human Resource Benefits, Human Resource Credentials, Human Resource Positions, Performance Reviews and Employee Self Service so employees or their managers can access employee payroll and human resource information remotely with any standard web browser.

During the conference opening, Chris Lovely, President of CYMA, announced Kerr Consulting & Support (that's us!),, was once again the largest reseller for CYMA Accounting Software. This makes it ten years running, and we don't mind bragging about it.

Other major announcements include CYMA Accounting Software OEM relationship with RedGear Tax Software known as RedGear Accounting Software powered by CYMA. RedGear is the 6th largest tax software provider with over 10,000 tax professionals using their RedGear Tax Software. CYMA is now being shipped on every RedGear CD. RedGear also offers ArkWorks Document Management.

CYMA has also partnered with BizNet as their Business Intelligence tool for CYMA Payroll and CYMA HR. These reports are generated using Microsoft Excel and are simple for end users to access. This new product is now known as HR & PR Financial Reporting Powered by BizNet.
