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.

    "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.

    "Really Improved"

    October 24, 2013   |   By awilson99

    Version: NolaPro Free Accounting 5.0.10292

    Pros

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

    Cons

    Doesn't automatically download your bank statements. Takes a little study to learn everything it can do.

    Summary

    I tried this a while back and just came back and downloaded the new version. This publisher keep it updated alot! Pleased that it runs on both my Windows 7 and 8 systems.
