TakingStock - One for paper pushers

As accounting software giants squared off at the National Accountancy Exhibition in Birmingham two weeks ago, one company could have been forgiven for thinking it was in the wrong exhibition hall.

Tucked into a tiny stand, with no computer screens or interactive displays, and flanked on either side by dotcoms and CD-ROMs, Taking Stock stumbled upon Bettabox, and the ‘Foldafile’ filing system.

Foldafile, developed by accounting brothers Robert and Piero Soteriou, is a set of translucent plastic folders (available in three sizes) with coloured paper labels, (available in pastel pinks, greens and yellows) affixed to the front to tell office staff exactly what is in the plastic container.

Competing with Sage, ACCPAC and other software brands cannot be easy, but given Foldafile’s lack of interactive features, windows applications and complete browser incompatibility, it is surely in a class of its own.

And so much for the paperless age.
