Accounting software launched for the glass industry

EconoAccounting Glass-Plus has been launched specifically for the glass industry. Based on the successful EconoAccounting package, the software is a first in its ability to import bank statements downloaded from the Internet.

EconoAccounting Glass-Plus modules cover debtors, creditors, general ledger, purchase ordering, inventory control and management reporting.Says Econoserv MD Keith Levenstein, "It is innovative in its ease of use, and we believe is the first SME accounting package able to import bank statement transactions directly from the Internet.This can save hours a week in data capture, guaranteeing that the accounting information is always accurate. Clients have proven that they are able to keep their accounts accurate and up to date with only five minutes work per day."

EconoAccounting Glass-Plus also manages quotations. It produces accurate quotes, incorporating the peculiar rounding requirements of the glass industry, and automatically converts quotes into invoices, with the ability to print a delivery note if required.

"On average, companies in the glass industry only win one out of every five quote they produce. Being able to generate a quote faster and accurately, may enable users to win one out of every four quotes. A massive 20% increase in business, just by responding faster than their opposition," says Levenstein.

An optional EconoSMS feature enables quotes to be sent via SMS. "Imagine the builder on site requesting a quote and receiving it via their cell phone one minute later. We believe this will also increase the chances of getting more business," says Levenstein.

Each user qualifies for three hours free training, which Levenstein says is sufficient to learn how to use the software. Free email and phone-in support is provided, and all upgrades are free. Updates can be freely downloaded from the Internet as they become available. In addition, there are no monthly or annual licence charges.
