Solutions 6 will offer its Y2K search and correct tool MFX 2000 to 12,000 accounting clients in Australasia, the UK, South Africa and Asia, the company announced this week.
Solutions 6 chose MFX 2000 against other products because of its audit and management report function.
Kim Barnes, GM for professional services at Solutions 6, said: "We are offering this to our customers because it's a good corporate citizen thing to do. A lot of our customers think they are Y2K okay and MFX 2000 is an easy cheap way to check if that's true.
"The MFX 2000 audit provides a good Y2K health check and I believe the world watchdog on Y2K -- The British Standards Institute is using MFZ 2000 themselves, so that's a pretty good endorsement."
Barnes said, "MFX 2000 can temporarily fix the problem but to rely that, well, I wouldn't."
It's better that if our customers do find they have a problem to go back to the manufacturers of the product, he advised.
MFX Research claims the Y2K scanning tool is unque because it operates at the object code level and "is language- and platform-independent".
The product MFX 2000 scans and corrects short date usage in programs and applications across all platforms.
