Going Higher Tech

 For years I have used good old Excel in order to keep track of my business. Debits, credits, sales, etc. When I first started using a simple spreadsheet, back in the early 90's, it seemed like a wonderful invention. I would sit down every night and input all of the days pertinent entries. Every so often I would add another column or calculation to my little spreadsheet, which over time, became a pretty complicated form. But the best part of it was, I still just needed to enter a few numbers for the day, and in an instant, I knew if I was in the black or the red, and by how much. 

Starting a few months ago I began using Quickoffice on my smart phone. It looks a lot like Excel but some of the formulas are a bit different. While I am still learning how to set it up properly, it is already speeding things up for me. Instead of sitting down at a PC every night, I now simply enter the numbers right after they happen. In addition, I photograph every single receipt or check and then, when I get back to the office, send them to my printer via Bluetooth.

Last night I started looking at Android apps that would make this whole thing even faster and easier while still retaining the ability to keep very accurate books and god backups. I am still researching but if anyone has any ideas please forward them to me. Thanks.

Good morning Kevin,

Is QuickOffice the smartphone version of Quickbooks? I've always used regular QuickBooks at home so I'm interested to hear about apps too. Thanks for posting.

Mona-
It looks more like a mobile Excel.
