The Big Red revolution

The Big Red Book is a super-simple book-keeping program launched last week. The package costs £395 and was designed by Dublin accountants Brian Phelan & Co to look and work just like a traditional ledger. The target market is for cash-driven small businesses which do not need to maintain nominal ledgers.

More Web, less hassle PracticeWeb is a new, ready-made website service to cut down the hassle for accountancy firms which want to establish a Web presence. A joint venture between the AccountingWEB internet service and Bristol-based marketing Practice Track, PracticeWEB provides a Web address and templates firms can use to built their own site. A sole practitioner site costs £1,000 a year, plus a £250 set-up fee.

Viztopia moves up Viztopia last week introduced Version 3.0 of its accounts production software. Now a full 32-bit Windows package, the enhanced program can cope with multiple accounting year postings and specialist farm, charity and trust accounts formats. The company also launched a practice intranet system, Viztopia Knowledge Management.
