CNET Editors' review
Here's a tip: When it comes to business expenses, "free" is usually the better option. But free accounting; that's the best. Noguska's NolaPro Cloud Accounting leverages the power of cloud-based data hosting and free tools like the Apache database software to give small and medium businesses a comprehensive business suite rivaling expensive solutions like Quickbooks. A browser-based interface gives NolaPro a familiar feel for the broadest range of users, and it makes accessing Cloud-based resources that much easier, too. Recent updates include Windows 8 compatibility.
NolaPro's setup wizard installed and accessed the Apache database, and we signed in with the default user name and password, which the program provides on the Internet Explorer-based user interface (and which we subsequently changed). All fields are required in the next step, Initial Company Setup, but NolaPro accepts "none" as a response in some fields. We also chose a business type from an extensive drop-down list of business types, including Other. Clicking Activate took us to the program's login screen, which let us sign in with our NolaPro or Google accounts; and thus to the Quick Start page. There's a lot on offer, but the overall user-friendly approach made it easy for us to get started. A handy Dashboard accesses the main features, Billing, Payables, and the Ledger, and it opens on a Help tab accessing an extensive menu of options: Quick Start Guide, Video Training Library, NolaPro Support Site, Extras & Add-Ons, and more. There's even a small but useful Quick Help box with See All Tips, Customize It, Text Help, and Get Support. Notable on the toolbar are quick links to OneNote and OneNote Linked Notes, plus a Safety menu with Tracking Protection, ActiveX Filtering, SmartScreen Filter, and other privacy-protecting options. All the browser-based tools and fields responded quickly, both locally hosted and Cloud-based features.
Small business owners don't need to be accounting or software experts to use NolaPro Cloud Accounting. This free program is recommended for anyone who needs to keep the company accounts and ledgers straight.
NolaPro is a free Cloud Accounting suite that can be securely run from your PC. Refine and manage your business with its flexible and powerful Customer tracking, Billing, Payables, General Ledger and Reporting features. NolaPro expands as you grow with Inventory Control, Service/Labor Order management, POS/Fulfillment Order support, a B2B web portal, eCommerce integrations, vTiger CRM add-on, Employee Timeclock, QuickBooks converter, development API and many more Add-On options.
White Label partner revenue versions are available for CPAs, VARs and consultants. For international users, it supports Multi-Currency, VAT/GST, multi-language capability, and currency, decimal and temperature flexibility. However NolaPro's customization is its best feature. It can be modified upon request to fit any industry spec, business requirement, or country regulation, as well as integrated with most 3rd party applications to provide backend accounting support.
