Ironbark C# is fundamentally similar to Cobol, but there are advantages to the C# system
which include more ledger traceability, better audit control and integration with third
party software and analysis tools.
The new features were made possible my upgrading the programming language from the
original Cobol to Microsoft’s latest language C#.
Sacha Fahy, Ironbark Software’s Development Manager says “Better security is just one
benefit of the latest Ironbark C# system. Customers will also have more control over
menus than ever before and will find it easier to audit and balance general ledgers. Our
commitment to R&D is a key factor in the successful rollout of Ironbark C# with full help
desk support facilities available to clients. The need for innovative technology has spurred
the improvement of our systems which are being demanded by clients and potential
clients alike. Development keeps us up to date in a competitive software market. The
older version of Ironbark does not provide for major system advancements and this is why
our focus is lying mainly on the development of Ironbark C#…”
Whilst no new training is required for existing Ironbark customers who wish to upgrade,
Ironbark highly recommend it.
“The programs are more powerful than our customers realize and by utilizing our training
resources, our customers can learn how to use the latest C# Ironbark system which will
save time and money in the long run…” says Fahy.

the upgrade to C# by Totally Workwear Joondalup.

Integration to other 3rd parties will be setup for Joondalup later in the year with
