ManagePLUS early-bird pricing has been extended

It's been quite a summer here in the central Midwest! Record flooding in July and August kept everyone busy--whether you were a farmer worried about late planting and flooded crops, a businessperson concerned about how heavy rains and $4.00 gasoline might affect your clientele, a volunteer filling sandbags or helping with flood relief, or just someone trying to figure out how to make it to your job through an maze of swollen streams, closed roads, and detours.

Admittedly this is a local perspective--the weather wasn't severe everywhere. Even so, summer is always a busy time--for work, play, vacations, and being outdoors as much as we can manage to be. It's also a time when most people don't think much about accounting, or analyzing records, or computers in general. (And that's probably how it ought to be!) All things considered, summer probably isn't the best time of year to offer special early-bird pricing on accounting- and management-related software.

So for those of you who didn't have time to try out the new release of ManagePLUS for QuickBooks, version 2.0, and for those of you who wanted to buy it but forgot--in the midst of "too much going on"--we've extended the early-bird pricing program on ManagePLUS for QuickBooks through the end of this year, December 31, 2008.

Everyone who buys ManagePLUS for QuickBooks by December 31, 2008 will save $50 off of the regular retail price--that's $99 for new ManagePLUS licenses, or $79 if you're upgrading from any prior ManagePLUS 1.x version.

Extending the early-bird pricing program actually has two benefits:

  1. It gives you some "breathing room"--more time this fall and early winter to try the new ManagePLUS with our own records, to see what it can do for you.
    A trial version of ManagePLUS is available as a free download from our Web site. Once you've installed it, it works in trial mode for up to 30 days--we'll even extend the trial period if you need more time (just ask).
  2. It gives us some "breathing room" too--an opportunity to add more features to ManagePLUS (described below); to prove our commitment to expanding and extending the product by building in features that make it a "must have" QuickBooks add-on for you.

New ManagePLUS features coming soon!

We can't release details just yet, but for now we can tell you that there will be a significant upgrade release of ManagePLUS for QuickBooks before the end of this year. The upgrade will focus on expanding ManagePLUS' reporting features, giving you a lot more basic reporting options as well as supporting more complex reports for those of you who always "want more". Here are a few tidbits to whet your appetite for the new features:

  • Like QuickBooks, ManagePLUS will have numerous "automatic" reporting periods available, like Day, Week, Month, Quarter, Year, etc.
  • Unlike QuickBooks, you'll be able to include any reporting periods you want on a single report. Want to compare numbers for the 1st quarter of years 2006, 2007, and 2008 on one report? You'll be able to do that!
  • Unlike QuickBooks, the multiple periods you choose to include on a report can be limited to quantity information--or actually, any report columns. Want to see a report showing sales quantities by month (including correct units of measure, average price received, etc.) for the past 18 months? That will be an easy report to produce, after the upgrade. 

Stay tuned...we'll let you know when the upgrade is available, some time this fall.

One more thing:  the upgrade will of course be free of charge for those who have purchased a ManagePLUS for QuickBooks 2.x software license.

Now: get all of our software on a single CD

The usual way to try any of our software products is to download its installation program from our Web site, www.goflagship.com, then run the installation program to install the product on your computer. But what if you have a slow Internet connection or you'd prefer having the software on CD for safekeeping? 

Our prior newsletter mentioned that ManagePLUS was available on CD. But we've expanded the CD's contents to include all our software products: ManagePLUS for QuickBooks, Catch Weights for QuickBooks, and FormCalc for QuickBooks. The CD also has other goodies too, like the same videos you'll find on our Web site for each software product. So now a slow Internet connection won't keep you from seeing the useful information you'll find in our software product videos. There's also a copy of the ManagePLUS User's Guide as a .PDF file, which you may print out to have a printed manual for ManagePLUS.

With this one CD you can install trial versions of any of our products. And after trying them if you decide to continue using any of them you only need to buy the software license for it. When you do, we'll send you a Registration Code to type into the trial version you already have installed on your computer, turning it into a fully licensed copy--there's no other software to install, nothing to change or reconfigure.

How to get the CD? Visit our online ordering page:  http://www.goflagship.com/orders/onlineorders.htm, where you can order the Flagship Technologies Software CD for a small charge (currently $10) plus shipping & handling.
