In 1980 a local CPA firm, of which I was a partner, was just beginning to use office desktop computers. We searched for appropriate accounting software, including a good fixed assets accounting program. After using the selected program for a year I went to my partner and said, “We can write a better fixed assets program.” Thus was born the idea that has developed into CMI Fixed Assets.
Our Comprehensive Fixed Assets Accounting System (CFAAS), as the initial program was named, was written in CPM basic and released in 1983. We still count among our users some of the original five purchasers of CFAAS. Subsequently the name was changed to THE SYSTEM and finally to CMI Fixed Assets.
What has not changed is our commitment to providing a quality product at an affordable price with top notch support. CMI Fixed Assets was originally developed to serve the needs and desires of our own public accounting firm. Over the years CMI Fixed Assets has grown due to our own wishes to improve, to keep up with accounting and tax changes and to respond to requests and suggestions from our users - accountants and CPAs in public practice, industry and government - who are our greatest resource for ideas. Of course the years have seen a substantial migration from the original CPM operating system to today’s Windows environment.
We invite you try CMI Fixed Assets. We are ready and anxious to answer your questions. We are always pleased demonstrate the special tools and capabilities that make CMI Fixed Assets more than just another “depreciation system”.
And after you decide to place your confidence in us we promise you more attention and satisfaction than you thought a software company could provide.
Welcome to CMI Software,
