Document Creation for Small Businesses

Feature overview

  • Kraft uses a database to store details of your customers, your stock, non-stock item requirements, quotations and orders.
  • By means of templates, document creation becomes easy and consistent.
  • Free-format invoicing is also possible.
  • Since version 0.32 taxation levels are editable to reflect the country's tax laws.
  • Repeat orders simplified - use previous orders as the template
  • Existing document (e.g. quotation) becomes basis of follow-on documents (e.g. delivery notes and invoice)
