Christine Bridge Antique Glass
Abacus - The Antiques Dealer's Computer System  

CBA Abacus Ltd. ABACUS Windows

This is the long awaited Windows version of the highly successful ABACUS.
ABACUS Windows is a completely new program which has all of the functionality of ABACUS but with many new features incorporated. Like its predecessor it is designed to be simple to understand, easy and fast to master.

The system is based around the antiques dealers stock book. It provides the ability to track an item from purchase, through restoration to sale. It maintains a relational database of stock with or without images or contacts e.g. customers, events and expenditure. Information is entered once only, whether it be a new contact, an item of expenditure or a restoration. From this data the system will provide fundamental details regarding sales, expenditure, profitability in a host of pre defined reports, plus the statutory VAT return for the UK and State tax calculation for the USA.

It provides many search facilities, visual stock records with images, which of course can be printed, customer history, audit trail and bank reconciliation data.
