Default Looking for BASIC accounting software. Not for banking.

Please Login to Remove!

Hi all.

I have a BB9730 for work use. I work as a Dog Warden for a council and I regularly return strays etc. For this we charge and the people I return them to often haven't the money to pay the fee in one. So, I want to keep an account of who has paid what.

"Let the finance section do that!" I hear you bay. We did, but new rules mean we can't raise an invoice for any sum under 50 so we now end up going back and chasing up fees or they'll be lost.

What I want is a small app that can create an account, "Mrs Miggins of 1 Acacia Avenue, London", note the amount, "80 owed" and note the amount and date a payment is received and keep a balance. If it can be shared between 2 BB's so much the better so we won't door knock for a fee recently collected.

This is no place for a discussion on the rights or wrongs of us doing debt collectors jobs or how the council should have systems in place please.

I currently have two outstanding debts, that's all, but it's easy to forget and I don't want to leave pieces of paper or books in the van with that sort of info. I'm sure there's a note taking app in there somewhere but I want the app to do the counting for me.

Thanks for reading.

Mike.

You can put notes in the word doc's or use Doc's to Go.
They have an XL you can make into a form.

you can also do an internet search for a credit card reader that works on blackberrys.

I found 5 or 6 available free to the user. This all depends on how you want to bill

Hey Mikeatbb

Don't know if you've solved your problem yet but I use Sage 50 on my BB and it works really well, especially on the go! Here's where I got mine from: Sage 50 Mobile | Access Sage 50 Accounts data from your Mobile device. I used the free trial, which could be good for you to get an idea if its suitable?

Hi and thanks for the suggestion. They won't pay for the software and sage is a bit too much for this kind of stuff anyway. We'll stick with the backs of our diaries for now!
