Firms should delay using the Euro as their main trading currency after the start of EMU on 1 January, 1999, according to the Business and Accounting Software Developers Association.
Dennis Keeling, chief executive of BASDA, said that politicians have made the lives of software developers difficult by failing to provide the information which the industry needs within a reasonable time frame to design software to handle currency conversion and dual-based currency handling.
The combined strain of coping with the Euro and the Year 2000 problem justifies a delay in implementing EMU, according to Taskforce 2000 head Robin Guenier. "IT departments are struggling with the biggest and the second biggest problems in their history at one time, and everyone knows IT projects are always late," he said.
