The following is my personal opinion on the CTE Computer Centre 3A Accounting Software:-
I have been using this 3A Accounting Software since 2005. Being the head of the Accounts Department of Merit Power Sdn Bhd, I am tasked with overseeing the company’s full set of accounts to be properly done for our annual audit submission.
Since 2005, CTE Computer Centre had constantly been upgrading their 3A Accounting software. From the early days’ norm of “monthly closing” system then, their software had from 2011 thereafter lifted this previous restrictive mode into their current very flexible “open” system.
With entries once keyed-in being posted into the accounts straightaway, every account now can be viewed immediately to allow us to check on the entries accuracy. It allowed us the flexibility to amend any previous wrong entry spotted at a later date. I find this is most useful as there was no need to pass so many journal entries for correction purposes. They were aware that flexibility can have its drawbacks as if not properly controlled can lead to the entire set of accounts being messed up. For this we had been cautioned that for better control only one person (preferably the person in-charge) should be allowed this amendment option. So far with me being the only one allowed the amendment option, my employer’s accounts had seen no problems until this date.
For me, by far, the best part of this software is having the “Export” option. With this option, reproducing my accounts in the format I would prefer for different specific purposes is a breeze. There may be times when there is a need to reproduce my accounts for a certain purpose (for my bankers for instance) but because the format in the 3A system is not the way it should be presented for that purpose, all I would need to do is to export these figures out from 3A into my Excel worksheet. From that Excel worksheet I could then reformat it the way I want to suit that particular purpose. This Export option cuts short the process of having to re-key-in all figures for the entire accounts out of the software system.
With the implementation of the GST from April 2015 onwards, I must applaud CTE Computer Centre once again for coming up with their Customs compliant Accounting software. Their software encompasses all information required by the Customs department and all we, users, need to do was to adhere to their instructions on how to use it.
I lift my hats off to them for their care and thoroughness, for they not only guided us on how to use their system (which is their duty) but they also went out of their way to give us feed-backs on the best way to submit our GST-03 monthly returns. Lately with the new 6-months’ deadline (starting on 1st October) on claiming of bad debts relief on GST paid, they also highlighted to us on what was the best option to deal with this subject.
Last but not least, all Accounting software users would know the importance of back-up support. The CTE Computer Centre support department is the best. To resolve any problems or glitches on software affecting our accounts, all we need is just a phone call to them. Their actions are most prompt. So we don’t have any problems created through computer glitches whatsoever.
Receptive to feed-backs
CTE Computer Centre is most receptive to feed-backs provided by their clients. During the past 10 years of using their software I had come across many instances where my feed-backs to them had been taken into account and they had used such information to add into their existing software. Apparently they took into account the usefulness of such suggestions (if it has added value) to improve their overall software.
The above points are my personal view on how I feel about the CTE Computer Centre, 3A Accounting software. It may vary with different users but for me I would say Bravo to 3A Accounting software and team. You are the best!
