We developed the Main Course accounting system to allow you to run your business the way you want, not the way your accounting system dictates.
The base system consists of the Customer, Sales Rep., Inventory Control, Accounts Receivable, Order Entry, Invoicing, Purchase Order, Accounts Payable & Reports Modules.
The Accounts Receivable module includes a special collections tracking option which allows you to record free form comments for each open invoice and general comments for a customer. There are also ‘tickler’ dates which can be associated with each open invoice. These will remind you to call when an account promises to pay by the end of the week.
The client/server version of Main Course provides enhanced data integrity while maintaining the Foxpro file format. In a Client/Server environment, the server controls the databases and indexes. The server searches and updates the files, while the workstation only instructs the server as to what operations should be performed. Due to this arrangement, it is next to impossible for an individual work station to corrupt a file.
The general ledger supports account numbers of 5 numeric digits with a 2 digit department number. There are up to 12 periods which may be used. Postings may be made to the prior year by users with supervisory access. Postings from subsidiary ledgers are controlled by the user and are entered as summaries with the smallest possible increment being one days activity. Detail is obtained from the subsidiary ledgers.
The inventory control in the Main Course pays particular attention to serial number tracking and costing. Besides the costing methods of Average, FIFO & LIFO the Main Course offers a Serial Number costing option which will track the cost of transactions based on the actual serial numbers shipped on an invoice.
The Order Entry and Invoicing module supports much of what you would expect. Some specific functions include back-order ability, picking tickets, account status checks, credit hold check, and credit card processing. With the addition of the Electronic Catalogue you have access to an extensive list of all products supplied by all of the major distributors.
The Point of Sale module provides an easy to use all-in-one screen for entering sales orders and producing invoices. It is ideal for use at a counter that handles walk-in sales. There is support for a barcode reader and credit card swipe reader which attach to the keyboard. Using a third party program called IC Verify also allows you to do credit card authorizations.
The Purchase Order module allows you to generate POs from customer orders singly or in groups based on a first come first served allocation algorithm. If you are using the Service Manager you can also generate POs from parts needed information. Again with the Electronic Catalog you have access to pricing information from all major distributors.
The Service Manager program tracks contracts, contracted and time & material work orders and RMAs. Parts needed information can be entered on work orders and read by the Purchase Order module to generate POs. Billing is integrated to the Main Course Accounts Receivable and the Customer and Shipping address lists are shared.
