|| Kraft helps the craftsman or small-business-man to prepare essential documents.
Document Creation for Small Businesses
- 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)
