May 30, 2000

Spectra Computer Services Ltd. (Spectra), an industry leading property management software developer and eSolutions Company, is pleased to announce the recent release of its Budget Interface to Excel Module. A dynamic data exchange between SPECTRA for Windows® Property Management Accounting software and Microsoft’s Excel spreadsheet, the new Budget Interface eliminates the inconvenience of re-keying data, saving property management professionals countless administrative hours and money. 
Spectra’s Budget Interface provides property managers the capability to quickly export their budget information to an easy to read Excel spreadsheet for in-depth analysis and manipulation. Upon finalizing the financial plan for a property, the edited budget figures are imported back into
SPECTRA for Windows® efficiently and accurately. The Budget Interface Module is extremely flexible and allows you to export a variety of information including:

Budget Information- Property managers can choose exactly what type of budget information they wish to export from SPECTRA for Windows? including original, revised or forecast figures. As an additional convenience, the flexibility of the Budget Interface provides the option to export Actual YTD financial data or various combinations of Actual YTD and Original or Revised or Forecast Budgets, to aid in creation of proforma cash flow reports as well.

Account Information- You also have the ability to select specific account information to export. Options include profit and loss accounts, balance sheet accounts or information on all accounts.
Fiscal Year and Last Full Month of Processing Information- Property Managers can easily generate reports based on a specific fiscal year and set exact parameters for the last full month of processing for each property to receive the most up-to-date financial information and better determine their bottom lines.

"Prior to introducing this interface, creating budgets was a very time consuming and involved undertaking for property managers and accountants. Now, our clients can create detailed, accurate budgets in just a fraction of the time," comments Del Dunford, President of Spectra Computer Services Ltd. "Our clients now have greater control over the budgeting process and are able to make the most informed and cost effective decisions for their properties."
