From Acclaim Software:
Cashbook Complete is an accounting package that truly cuts the mustard as far as ease of use is concerned. It has user friendly screens and uses simple accounting terminology throughout. You can easily import bank statements from the Internet and e-mail your invoices and statements to customers and works for most English-speaking countries.
What's new in this version:
Added support for Server Authentication in the Email Setup.
Added support for Dropbox and Google Drive.
Added the ability to set a default Bank Account.
Improved the way the software handles lookups for invoices and quotes.
Very easy to use. Almost(!) intuitive. Very good GST/VAT reporting system. Easy to produce end of year reports for your accountant. In expensive to buy. Help screens seem to cover must functions well enough. You can keep time sheets and produce invoices directly from them.
It as a few quirks, but nothing major at the price. Some functions are only available from drop down menus and not the screen menus, so you have to learn where to look for them. Disbursements have to be entered into project or job cost records net of tax, which you have to calculate first.
Easy to use and generally well designed. Omits all those geeky procedures that are often found in accounting software and only trained accountants can understand. A really nice GST 101 report for New Zealand customers - the best out there.
A little DOS-like (old and spartan) in its appearance. But what happened to the unlimited free trial period? That's why I use it. However, my copy expired and it would not let me access my own data! Luckily I had a hard copy of all my transactions and I was able to enter them all into another accounting product - yes I certainly was not going to purchase Cashbook Complete after this experience. (I also found that I could break into the underlying files [they're in .mdb format] containing my own data using Microsoft Access).
Really? You weren't going to buy it because they were not going to give it to you for free? An unlimited free trial period does not mean that you don't have to pay for it when your are not trialing it anymore. Well, you got what you paid for.
The paid version is very good. Easy to use. Perhaps it has a few quirks, but nothing major.
After four years, I kept getting a message to upgrade. I didn't need the upgrade. Only way to contact company is thru email. After several emails back & forth(to no avail), program locked up and wouldn't let me access any info.
