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.

"Can't ask for more!"

August 22, 2014  |  By yennefer15

 |  Version: NolaPro Free Accounting 5.0.10908

Pros

Is more than just a basic freebie, will actually run your business, lots of options like payroll, inventory, etc.

Cons

Some reports could use a bit of style updating and takes a little while to download because its pretty big in size.

Summary

Nice interface, good features, can't beat the price :-)

"Free (or, nearly so)"

December 31, 2013  |  By rhoneyman

 |  Version: NolaPro Free Accounting 5.0.10292

Pros

For a couple of hundred dollars, you can turn a no-frills, basic bookkeeping system into a somewhat robust accounting system. The functionality is reasonable. While I haven't tested everything, the developers seem to have created a nice, small-business app that seems somewhat scalable.

Cons

The processes are somewhat stale. For example, posting ledgers are done in batch. If you have multiple ledger vouchers on one day and forget to post each separately (if that's your inclination), you'll have to post them together (you are able to segregate by voucher date).

The UI is really stale, but for the price, I don't necessarily care. I haven't fully tested the program so I'm not sure about pulling data for reporting or for transitioning to a different system, if that becomes an option in the future.

The on-line training is free and is not horrible.

Summary

I'm going with NolaPro three years after first looking at it. For some reason, I couldn't get anywhere with it back then. Now, it seems to work well. I'm pretty sure it will cover my needs for the next several years.

Handles everything I need to pay bills and send invoices. No nagging to upgrade, easy to set up. Lot of features included for free.

Easy to install and setup (with the aid of the setup wizard).

"can't believe its free"

January 16, 2013  |  By dwaiting

 |  Version: NolaPro Free Accounting 5.0.9732

Pros

i'm always amazed when i find something for free thats as good or better than expensive alternatives.
payables/receivables/gl and lots of other tools.
lots of options to upgrade cheaply

Cons

easy to use, but does take some thinking. guess i'm used to being led by the hand by apps which do it for you, but then again, those don't have as many features either.

What's new in version 5.0.10981
Version 5.0.10981:
    Added an option to subtotal expenses by cost center on the 12-month P&L Inv. PO List: Link for "PO Checklist" was pulling up the PO-PDF, corrected to link to the Checklist-PDF. Fixed could not e-mail out POs due to SQL error. New customers will have email1's "Send Invoice" checked by default. Added a way to block the Invoice Now if no unbilled shipments on order Fixed issue where packages from all shipments were showing at once. Changed so only current shipment packages are shown.
  • Adjustment so that when tracking number is searched for that specific shipment is set in the redirect and will be displayed.
  • Changed invoice deletion so that it now only deletes shipments related to the invoice being deleted; other shipments will remain open.
  • Import Bank Deposit: When user links the same bank-deposit to two different entries on the import-bank-statement. A warning message would be presented on this page when a duplicate is linked. Duplicate check will now look at both new and old matches vs only comparing new.
  • Corrected PDF line spacing (reduced) and corrected line wrapping for when a 'word' is longer than the line itself.
  • Corrected typing quickly in the order-entry page, in the line details, was causing a short pauses and characters to be lost.
  • Internal Messaging stopped working when the user had a dashboard tab with a broken pie chart on it.
  • When redirect() was passed a UTF-8 encoded value but the page's encoding is not set to UTF-8, it would cause an error and a failed redirect.
  • On customer's view page: any overdue amount in the "Recent Invoices" table, would have a '1' appended to the end.
  • Correction to values on AR aging report.
  • Performance adjustments to Physical Inventory tool.
  • Corrected auto-complete box's results when search included '('.
  • Added display of total Deposits, Invoice Balance, Uninvoiced Value and Due to the FO page.
  • Created a Deletion Report to allow an admin user to view deleted data from the system and see who deleted the data and when.
