The purpose of the this application Suite is to manage a customer base in its commercial aspect by controlling
the flow of transactions and goods.
After creating the data for suppliers and articles, this software allows you to record
the movement of goods with the appropriate documents.
The management of customer data base is therefore the last to be completed in the Suite setup.
The Customer management part is to be used at points of sales or within the accounting service. For all sales
(output of goods), establishing one or several sending notes is needed.
Billing is a process to be launched at suitable moment accordingly with
the accounting schedule of customers.
For a retail trade where only a receipt is requested, this approach can look
heavy and will be the subject of future adaptation.
The Management Suite is more suited to trade between
professionals or specialized enterprises than with that of retail business.
The Suite is developed with an European point of view as the VAT concept is taken in account.
From version 3.0.1 a replacement to the VAT label can be used in the documents
in order to fit none eurozone users need.
This Suite is made of three interactive parts to be used for small
business management, the parts are:
- The Customers Management
- The Suppliers Management
- The Stock Management
These three programs can produce the needed documents and
manage a small business, trying to keep the concept and design as
general as possible.
The accounting aspect of the management is not presently supported,
but we are open to any help/tip to implement it. (contact)
. A first step in this direction is to provide the exportation of
outgoing stock events in a log file using a CSV format that can be used
as input for an accounting management.
These pieces of software are written in C and based on the Linux
OS but have also been ported on MS-Windows. It
is fast, light, 'stand alone' and easy to install, the
user interface is based on the GTK
libraries in order to give the Linux user his usual environment.
Windows users will get the native Windows interface from 3.0.0.
The programs are not using any external database structure and
are designed to give the user an easy and direct manipulation approach.
The database structure is fully text based and so gives a very
easy access way to other programs. No other server ( apache, php,
...) or database (mysql, oracle ...) program is required to run
You will be able to import or export data via Excel like (CSV) tables,
so you can migrate to another utility if this one doesn't fit your
These applications will never attempt to
connect to the Internet for registration or control of any kind. But
the issues are limited in time(Two years at version release).
The Linux version 1.0 and later can work in networking
and need the NFS feature to be fully deployed (No direct network
access is performed by the programs) .
For Windows the version 2.5.4 and later implements also a networking capability.
