Value for money,

Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
It's odd the little things that make a difference and create a positive feeling towards a product or vendor. With this, when I opened the box and tipped out the contents there was a little A6 notepad with the NCH logo included. I thought it was a nice touch and made me think that if they pay that much attention to the little things then this software will probably be ok.
Although I'm not an accountant, in my youth I was designing and writing software for a large multi-national. One of my projects was to design a new online accounts system for the company. So I have some familiarity with accounting systems.
This is designed for small businesses. It is easy, quick and painless to install - though an internet connection is necessary as you are implored not to install from the enclosed disc but to download the latest software from the company's website and then use the validation key from the box to register it.
It does all that you would expect from an accounts system for a small company - even down to allowing you to customise things like invoices with company logos etc. There are loads of options - more than I actually need for my businesses. I run several home-based businesses and it would have been nice to have allowed the option to create separate files for each one. But that's something I wouldn't really expect anyway.
The window layouts are neat, clear, and easy to navigate.
It just does what it says, and I think it's a useful piece of software for a small business owner and excellent value for money.
