Prior to writing Adagio, Softrak Systems was a third party developer
for ACCPAC International (now Sage). Softrak was the developer of
the Quik series of add-ons for ACCPAC Plus; thus, Adagio shares a
common heritage with ACCPAC Plus. In 1999, Softrak created Adagio

environment without the expense of data conversion and retraining.

can "come home to Adagio". In many cases, ACCPAC Plus users can
continue using Plus while they migrate to Adagio one module at a
time, which is unheard of for accounting software conversion.
