has released MacInvoice 1.1, an update to their invoice and billing application. The new version adds international support (for English-speaking countries), support for multiple currencies, optional password protection on startup, e-mail statements, and an improved Time Module that allows stopping and resuming.
In addition, due to the “overwhelming success” of the initial release of MacInvoice, everyone who purchases MacInvoice will receive free updates through the rest of 2001, according to the folks at Praevius. This includes those who purchased MacInvoice 1.0.
“We realize that many consumers are concerned about the cost of upgrading the various software titles they use to OS X compatible versions when it is released later this year” Praevisus President Matt Milano said. “We are therefore please to announce this promotion will also allow all registered users of MacInvoice to upgrade to the OS X version of MacInvoice, free of charge, when it is released.”
The program is designed to help simplify the invoice and billing operations of small to medium sized, Mac-based businesses, Milano told MacCentral. As such, it supports the following features: e-mail billing; a time module for “by the minute” billing; autofill item/service descriptions; billing reminders; extensive reports (account receivable, cash applications, sales tax report, etc.); inventory tracking/management; expense tracking; private comments; backup reminders; mailing label printing; and more.
“This application will help fill a gap long left open in the Macintosh software arena,” said Milano. “It provides an inexpensive way to bill customers and clients, even automating some of the routine billing and invoicing operations.”
Milano added that Invoice & Billing has “a very intuitive interface combined with powerful features that will perform well in the most rigorous business environments.” A multi-user, networkable edition is also in the works.
MacInvoice is available for a 10-day evaluation period. During this time, the program will be fully functional, with no limitations. Following the 10-day demo, you’ll have to register the software — though there’s a special introductory offer of US$39.95 — in order to continue using the software.
