All-in-one business management

Keep track of everything from company contacts to finances with this program.

TopSales Basic lets you manage of all your company's important information from one place. It has many features businesses will find useful. There's a contacts database, a calendar, and a to-do list function. You can also generate invoices and manage your company's bank account with TopSales Basic. It will generate mailing lists and all manner of reports such as Balance Sheets, Sales Analysis, Inventory Control, and other accounting, customer, and product-based data reports.

TopSales Basic's interface is basic, befitting the name, but it gets the job done. The menus are easy to navigate. You can input data from QuickBooks and export data as Excel files, text files, or VCards. Overall, we were impressed with TopSales Basic's features, but it was not without glitches. Presumably you can print files and reports. Under the File menu there is an option for "Printer Setup," but when we clicked on it, nothing happened. There is a Help tab that apparently links to a Web page, but when we clicked on it, an error message said we weren't connected to the Internet. However, there was nothing wrong with our connection, and we were able to access other Web pages with no problems.

This is a 30-day trial version of the software. It installs with no problems, but when we uninstalled it, a 25KB folder was left in our Program Files. Issues with the online Help feature aside, this is an easy-to-use program with a lot of built-in functions that would suit the needs of a small business.
