1. For managing your own business, not for resale. Must be purchased directly from ACCEO Solutions, not from a reseller.
2. Only one contact (e-mail address and user name) per subscription.


What is the first thing to do to create the link between my software and Acomba X?

The first thing to do is to contact customer service to get your identification key. The key is needed to allow compatible software to interact with Acomba X.

To get the key, download the identification key request form and return the duly completed form to [email protected].

Is an application already programmed for Acomba compatible with Acomba X?

An SDK which can use Acomba X web services has been designed to access the Acomba X database. You can therefore change the calls to SDK for Acomba X web services calls, but there is no 1 to 1 correlation in terms of calls.

The Acomba format of the GL Import file is compatible with Acomba X. We plan to make minor changes to it over time. Finally, we offer training to help you adapt your applications to Acomba X.

Do we need to register for the program for software that already exists?

Registration is required if you want your solution to evolve within Acomba or Acomba X. Your solution will continue to work even if you are not registered, but it will no longer be displayed on our website.

Should I register now to adapt my solution to the Payroll module or can I wait for it to be released first?

We strongly recommend that you register now so that you can keep up on possible changes to the GL Import file and to have access to technical support.

Registration gives you the opportunity to actively participate in discussions on the developers forum and to share information with your fellow programmers.

Do I have to renew my subscription to the Acomba developers program every year?

Yes. The renewal is due every year on May 1. A reactivation charge of 25% of the subscription price is applied for each year of non-subscription, regardless of the number of days.

Can compatible software be integrated in the Acomba shell?

Compatible software cannot be integrated in the shell. However, an external application can subscribe to certain events (event aggregator), which gives the user the impression that the software is fully integrated.

You can get the Acomba X theme in order to give the windows of a compatible application the same appearance as those of Acomba X.

Should a developer with several programmers on his team get additional user licenses?

A developer with more than two users (developers) working simultaneously must purchase additional licenses.

For the cost of these licenses, contact customer service at 1 800 862-5922.

How do we get technical support?

Support for the developers subscribed to the program is provided through the forum and by email. If you want telephone technical support, please specify it in your request by email.

SDK Acomba or Acomba X SOAP support: [email protected]

ODBC for Acomba support: [email protected]

Where can I find literature?

Literature for Acomba and Acomba X is available on the forum. A subscription is required to access the forum.

Is the ADX import/export tool included in both program statuses?


Can we continue selling ODBC?

You can sell ODBC with Acomba. However, when you migrate to Acomba X, the bridges and reports will have to be made again using the new tools available.

Are we continuing to sell the Data Importer?

We continue to sell the Data Importer for Acomba.

For Acomba X, two data importers are available. The first data importer for Acomba X is free, but can only be used to import data when creating a company. The second data importer for Acomba X is used to update data or import new data into an existing company. However, this second data importer is not free. To learn more, contact us.

If I don’t code in C#.NET, can my software still interact with Acomba X?

Yes. To interact in real time with Acomba X, you must use the REST service for Acomba X. The REST service can be used in different programming languages (such as Delphi or in PHP).
