Rightcontrol Lite is an intuitive program that allows users to track inventory and sales. Although this free version of the program is practically useless, it offers a preview of what could potentially be a very helpful program.
The program's interface is plain and well-organized, with graphical buttons that represent each of its major functions. Users create databases of customers and suppliers, enter their inventory, and then use the software to manage purchasing, ring up sales, and create invoices. The program also allows users to create and print bar codes. The program comes with a 31-page PDF manual that is well-written and does a good job of explaining its features. Overall, the program is quite clean and uncluttered, making it very easy to use. Why, then, do we call the program useless? Although it's advertised as free, Rightcontrol Lite is really only a trial version of the Rightcontrol software. Users can play around with it all they want, but with one catch: all stock data is removed when the program is closed. Make sure you're aware of this before you get too gung-ho about entering your inventory, or you may end up wasting a whole lot of time. It's unfortunate that the program isn't more upfront about this limitation, because it does seem like a good inventory management product.
Rightcontrol Lite comes as a zip file, but it installs and uninstalls without issues.

Version: Rightcontrol Lite 2007.1.3
Umm, looks simple enough
After trying to test this software, I recieved a message that "all stock data will be removed on unregistered versions" upon loging out. Did not make me happy that this information was not provided before hand.
