What is Crave Invoice? – It’s Invoicing Software
Crave invoice is an invoicing and billing program that allows businesses to manage products, customers, invoices and receipts easily through an application installed on their computer. There are many powerful features built in which include:
Automatically email recurring invoices to customers
Customise the templates of invoices, quotations and more to meet your business needs
A whole range of reports that can be generated at a click of a button
Easy to learn and use interface
Installing and Configuring
Installing Crave Invoice was a breeze and was no different to other software installs that you have done in the past. Once installed, you will be presented with a setup screen to configure your organisation’s company, tax, and currency details.
Once you’re done with the initial setup, you are instantly on your way to create your first invoice.
One thing I like about Crave Invoice is that it is very easy to use. There is a consistent layout and you are not overwhelmed with options as you are with other invoicing tools. Just click the Products tab and you can create a new product and view your existing products.
This is pretty much all there is to it. For small business this would be a perfect solution, but for larger ones, it might not offer the flexibility that you want such if each product you sell has a unique serial number that has to be recorded. However, for a sporting club or freelancer, it is a perfect solution.
Adding customers is just as easy and contains all the fields that you need.
Invoices and Sales Orders
This is where Crave Invoice does what it does best – the invoicing.
One of my requirements of good software is that it allows tasks to be done easily and fast. There is nothing worse of having to do 10 or so of the same task and it takes forever to do. Creating an invoice is as easy as selecting the customer’s name which populates their details into the form. You then just have to select the items to be invoiced and few other optional options like adding notes or selecting a payment term. Once everything is filled out, just click on the email button and the software automatically emails the customer. Printing it out is just as easy.
As for creating Sales orders, it is almost an identical step to creating an invoice.
Once a customer has paid for the invoice, select Receipts to record the payment and enter the details.
Once entered, you can then print out, or email the receipt to the customer.
In terms of features, that’s basically the core functions of Crave Invoice. However, there are quite a lot of things you can do to customise it to your business needs. Here are a few things you can do:
Use it with multiple companies – you are not stuck with just one company name
Use it with multiple users with user accounts and set access permissions – if you work in a team, you can give access to certain parts of the software
Configure automatic numbering – you can easy change the auto numbering sequence for your documents
Add Periods – such as between summer or winter periods
Manage Currencies – working in AUD, USD, Euro or any other currency
Importing Data – easily import your data from an existing database
Advance Settlements – accept payments for the future
Reports Viewer – view a whole range of sales, customers or tax reports
Customising Templates – customise your template design to meet any requirements you have
And there are even more features:
Manage countries and cities
Transport and courier information
Add sales persons
Add payment terms
Add units of measurements
Change product prices in bulk
Managing expense accounts and expense groups
