The majority of our users currently run Accord Payroll on a Microsoft SQL Server database and Payroll Business Solutions have held Microsoft Solution Partner status for some time. However, in recent times several of our clients have expressed an interest in the Sybase database platform and, in response, Accord Payroll has now been successfully tested on Sybase.

We have already completed several successful Sybase implementations and are pleased to announce the initiation of a formal partnership agreement with Sybase, recently acquired by SAP. Accord Payroll is an ODBC compliant software application and can work equally well with any database engine that supports ODBC. We are currently considering support for Oracle and Pervasive, which will further increase our range of operating environments and extend the choices available to our users.
