Not a game project

Sign in to follow this  


It's not a game project, but over the past couple days I've been designing and developing Beals Software's Small Business Accounting. It's very simple accounting software that basically just allows you to enter transactions, selecting a type (income or expense) and then categorizing it. Currently it is only setup for MS SQL storage, but I have plans on adding XML and MySQL (for the possibly forthcoming ASP.NET interface.)

I mainly made it because I wanted an offline accounting software that I could control. Took about 2 days and the majority of the work went into the data storage system I have in place and a tool to generate classes and sprocs for my SQL tables.

It's still missing some features (contacts are not in-place and I'd like to implement some different reporting features), but for the time being it will work.

Looks cool. What are you planning on selling it for?When are you releasing it?
Don't quote me on this, but as it is aimed at small business (like my own) probably pretty cheap; $5-$10 USD. I have been thinking of doing some different licensing options (supporting a certain number of company entities), but I can't really see much use for that. I do plan on using it myself for both my accounting and my fiance's business accounting, but I'm not sure if there is really any market for that. Regardless of the pricing I decide on, I plan on offering either discounts or special licensing to GDNet users for most of our products (at least the business products.)

I plan on releasing the offline version, seen above, within the next month or so. I want to get XML storage set up and tested (for those users that don't know how to or don't want to set up a SQL server) and I need to do some more heavy testing.

The ASP.NET version might be a little further off. I'd prefer to do a hosting option than rather local install, but I need to accrue some fundage to pay for the hosting before I can do that. I could host it locally, but I lack experience in the security area and my power/internet are kind of sketchy (as well as my internet speeds being pretty poor.)

I will definitely keep everyone updated on the status of this and a couple other small business applications that I'm working on.

Thanks for the comment!
