Orchid Information Manager opens the power of Business Intelligence for mid-market companies at low cost, without programming and complex customization. Developed in the Accpac SDK, it allows you to create custom data structures (Information Sets) within your Accpac database and generate data cubes for multidimensional analysis in real-time.


-Improve productivity and customer service

-Do away with multiple Reports using 1 data cube

-Users format and filter as they like


Modules available are:

  • Supplementary Data: Create your own data structures to store information which is normally held outside Accpac. Included is Spreadsheet Add-in to dynamically link Spreadsheets to your Supplementary Data in Accpac; this has Read and Write Back capabilities. Great for budgeting and forecasting! Users can budget in Excel, with results written back to Accpac. You can either view data with Info-Explorer, or other reporting tools, such as Crystal Reports. This module is bundled with one Info-Explorer licence. Use these modules to enhance your system, or on their own:
  • Info-Explorer: Analyze and "slice and dice" your Accpac data, identifying trends and drill down into the detail where you need to.
  • Notes: Context sensitive pop-up notes from any Accpac screen.
  • Report Runner: Easy to use, security driven Crystal and General Ledger Financial Report Launcher to automate reporting.
  • Process Scheduler: Schedule Cube and Report extracts to optimize system usage.
  • Data Views: Turn Accpac’s Optional Fields into columns to simplify and accelerate reporting.

Like all breakthroughs, it is simple and intuitive.


  • -Extend Accpac to record and report on data not held in Accpac
  • -Create a foundation for KPI (Key Performance Indicator) reporting, budgeting, forecasting, storing non-financial data and more.
  • -Centralized repository of budget, forecast and additional sundry data that can be backed up along with your standard Accpac data.
  • -Link documents to Accpac data.
  • -Accpac look and feel with standard Accpac security, customisation capabilities, import/export, data integrity checking and more!
