TurboCASH5.2 Business Class

After years of development and support of TurboCASH, we came to the conclusion that pure open source development does not give us the best software. By combining proprietary components we get better code. We have thus introduced TurbOCASH 5-2 as a "subscription offering".

TurboCASH is free to use, but if you want more out of your software then "TurboCASH 5.2 Business Class" is the version you want to use.

If you have less then 500 transactions / documents you can use this version free of charge. Above that we ask you for a subscription of 60 dollars per year.

If you have any subscription already like multi-user or retail POS, etc., the licence will also be included.

Included in the registered version of TurboCASH 5.2 - Business Class: 

1.TurboCASH5-2 Subscription - Process unlimited (more than 500) transactions and documents.

2.Bank import - Using this Bank Import Plug-in, you may import a valid bank statement file (downloaded from your online banking) saved on your system into a Bank Account (Cash-book).

This Bank Import Plugin will save you time, since you do not need to physically enter the transactions manually in the Payments Journal and Receipts Journal.

This plug-in uses Bank references to automatically allocate or link payments and deposits, receipts, other debits. credits, etc. to the correct accounts.

3. Multi-workstation - Do you want to use osFinancials5 or TurboCASH5.2 with multiple users at the same time? That is possible with the Multi-workstation plugin. The number of users is unlimited, as long as the hardware sustains. To use the Multi-workstation a network with a shared folder is required.

4. Document E-mail Pro - With this plugin you can email your documents (invoices or quote). Each email you sent can get a different layout. For example: an invoice gets a different layout from a quote. You can create the email layout yourself. For that reason you decide what kind of email you will send.
It is also possible to send multiple examples of you documents at once. Therefore the document layout and email layout of the documents you want to send have to be the same.

It's even possible to send multiple document at the same time. Therefore the documents must be the same type (i.e. quote or invoice).

5. Multimedia Pack - The multimedia plug-in is a versatile product. You can link files in different forms of osFinancials.

Examples are debtor, creditor, stock items and document groups.  You can link a image to stock items or debtors but also link signed and scanned documents to debtors.

If you also have the email pro email send will also be linked to the document that was send and the debtor. This makes finding that email to the client with great ease. The outlook link plugin can scan true your outlook in and out box to see if there is email that uses the clients email address. If so it copies the email to the multimedia of that debtor / creditor.

Bulk time entries - See video on Bulk time entries   

Bulk time entries may be added for selected debtors (customers / clients) accounts. For example, if a debtor (customer / client) books a training course or workshop for a week, you may schedule the appointments for every day of the week. 

These bulk time entries will add the multiple appointments for a selected debtor (customer / client) account to the calendar as hours type events for selected dates and time slots.   

Quotes can be created for these events. These quotes can be edited, if necessary and sent to the debtor (customer / client). 

Once these appointments are completed, you may convert the quotes to invoices.
