Express Accounts can help you manage your business by keeping financial information. Despite the evidently complex workflow inherent to this type of activity, the program has been designed in a way that somehow flattens the learning curve. A crucial element is the graphical representation of the workflow, which helps you get directly the desired operation. Besides, there are tabs, labeled Sales, Purchases, Banking, and Reports, for each of the areas. In addition, there is a left-side panel that shows all the operations possible at a given time. And if you still have difficulty to use it, you can consult its excellent online tutorial as well.
In my opinion, one of the best advantages of this program is that it not only has a desktop but also a web interface. Thus, by starting the web services, you can have various employees working with the same database simultaneously, which is essential for larger business. Fortunately, it supports secure mobile access, too.
It is great that the program allows managing multiple businesses at the same time. Besides, you can select one of the types available: product-based, service-based and service-and-product-based business.
Express Accounts lets you keep a balance of your incomes and expenditures through the generation of quotes, invoices, sales, purchases, and payments. It integrates with other software by the same developer, for example, Express Invoice and Inventoria. However, you do not need to have the whole family for this particular program to work.
Managing reports is an important part of accounting. In this respect, the tool can automatically generate over 20 types of reports, including lists of overdue invoices and payments as well as balance sheets and income statements. These can be printed, saved as PDF or CSV or sent by email.
All in all, Express Account may be the right accounting software for you, mainly if you run a small business. The program is surprisingly light considering its multiple features. Yet, it might need to download additional software at times and contains links to other products by the same developer. The tool can be tried unlimitedly at no cost as long as you do not use it for commercial purposes. The product is available in two versions Basic and Plus. It can be bought separately or as part of a bundle, which may help you save a few bucks.
