Simple Quote and Invoicing Software

Jem Raid

There was a post further back about the above, all the answers were whether
the post should or should not have been posted. Opinions were divided and
there was no clear conclusion.

Alas no one actually answered the question.

I sell software and am often told by my customers who all run small
manufacturing and jobbing shops that their accountants are trying to
persuade them to use a./ a computer and b./ a simple accounts programs, and
could I find something for them to use.

I guess that accountants too get fed up with grubby bits of smudged paper.

This is another question which comes up every few days, why don't you
Google for it? AFAIR the last one suggested: Quickbooks, something else,
and "if you like Excel..." Nah it's gone!

When they get in a muddle with their new accounting package they'll
blame you, so I personally recommend Sage which is the worst, but as
it's the industry leader you won't get so badly flamed.

HTH.

Errrr actually they don't want accounts software, just something that they
can use to create quotations and then generate advice notes and invoices.
They then send the invoices to their accountants, who would prefer something
that came out of a printer rather than a duplicate book from Woolworths.

Microsoft do a wonderful set of programs called Office.
Believe it or not it's supposed to be for running your office.

You'll find the Excel part of it (and Word) has things called templates
for most of the things you need, including invoices, which you can
tinker about with to suit your own design.

Some years ago I was producing accounts for an estate agency with an
Irish bookkeeper (if that's relevant). They hadn't sent details of
their invoices, so I phoned them:

"Do you have a computerised invoicing system?"
"Of course"
"Could you run me off a list of invoices?"

Weeks later nothing had arrived so I phoned again:

"You *do* have computerised invoicing?"
"Yes"
"Where's my list then?"

It turned out the "computerised invoicing" was a single Word file that
they pulled into memory, typed up, printed one copy, discarded the
file without saving, didn't photocopy, didn't even record the details!
