Are you still using Account Mate for DOS? If so then this is made for you.
Account Mate Extras 2015 was written for owners of the DOS version to extend their capabilities.
This program was written to extend the capabilities of Account Mate for DOS by adding modern features to it. We understand how these legacy programs are critical to your business, and if it works, why upgrade it. The price tag for a new copy of Account Mate is quite high, and requires additional resources such as SQL Server, so maintaining your existing Account Mate for DOS makes sense. Now you can add all the modern features of Windows to your legacy accounting software. You can go 99% paperless with Account Mate Extras 2015 for DOS.
This is the main menu for the program. (Example 1)
This is the main menu for Account Mate Extras 2015, which has 5 functions so far.
- Order Confirmation - Electronic Order Confirmations via email
- Customer ATD Report - ATD Reports via email.
- Electronic Invoicing - Electronic invoicing via email
- Past Due Invoices - Electronic Past Due aging report and invoice via email
- Reports - Charts and Graphs using Microsoft Report Writer
With these 5 current modules, imagine how fast your front desk will be able to process and ship orders accurately. Past Due Accounts are flagged automatically by the Order Confirmation Process. Don't worry about invalid email addresses, we have written a safe secure way to validate them.
Cut your postage in half by eliminating the mailing of invoices, and past due request. No more multi-part invoice forms save even more money and space for storage.
This is the Order Confirmation Module. (Example 2)
This is a sample of the one of the program modules, Order Confirmations. When a Sales Order is created in Account Mate by a Sales Representative, the front desk can bring up that order for review. When the front desk controller verifies that the sales order is correct, then the controller can send the customer a copy of the order for electronic confirmation. You can select one or many sales orders, and transmit them in a batch operation. The program will then generate a PDF of the invoice, and generate an email message, attaching the PDF, and transmit it to your mail server for delivery. If the customers email address is not present, simply add the address with the click of a mouse. You can also verify the address by clicking test, in which we do an extensive lookup using DNS, and then probe the email server by sending a test message.
- List all sales orders for the day
- Click on a sales order to generate a preview PDF
- Select sales orders by date or customer number
- Check for past due invoices and amounts
- Transmit sales orders electronically for confirmation
- All transmissions are logged as Send History
- View Send History by date or customer number
This is the transmit function for every program module (Example 3)
The transmit function will gather the data from all the selected sales orders. When you click on send, the program will batch generate all the PDF required for each sales order, and store them on the hard disk drive. Then the program will begin to generate a custom email message for each sales order, and attach the PDF document. Once this is complete, the program will then transmit each email message in the background, freeing up the program to do the next task. Emails are sent using a background thread on your CPU if available. This saves time by allowing you to continue working, without have to wait for each email to send.
Example of what the order confirmation message looks like (Example 4)
This is what the email message looks like in Outlook 2013 Professional. You can see the attached document, and the formatting of the message including product details. The message can be customized for your organization for your pacticular wording.
