About Us

Who We Are

Very Impressive Software has been around since 1992. We are based in Wellington, New Zealand but have a network of associates throughout New Zealand, Australia and a few other countries. We focus on developing software that helps businesses handle their accounting requirements with minimum fuss and maximum efficiency.

When we started out, the company consisted of Steve Marriott and Peter Chung. We were supporting a proprietary financial package running on Data General hardware. The company has grown slowly but steadily until another company bought our accounting reseller division to setup as their Wellington office. We now have a smaller team just made up of developers and support staff.

Our name came about during the development of our first package, WinFix, an asset management package. The statement was made late one afternoon that the package was "pretty impressive". Someone else said that if we could move assets from one location to another using drag and drop (just like Windows Explorer), then that would be "Very Impressive Software". We did get the movement of assets via drag and drop working in that very first version, so Very Impressive Software became our company name!

What We Do

WinFix has developed into Very Impressive Assets, our flagship asset management package, which now comes in Lite, Standard, Professional and Online versions. We have developed a range of both standalone products and components for MYOB Exo Business - check out our Products page for the full range.

We continue to enhance and develop our packages, adding new features or just keeping up with technology, broadening the databases that they will work with and the operating systems they will function under.

We have found that 50% of MYOB Exo Business sites require some sort of development work done for them, either integrating a front-end package or supplying data for a website. We have developed tools, routines and an API (Application Programming Interface) that allow us to create tightly integrated applications very quickly.

All of our work is done using the Microsoft development toolset, with most also involving Microsoft SQL Server as the database.
