2 - I am an inexperienced user. Is it easy to use?

One of our main goals is to develop a modern style accounting system that is easy to use even for inexperienced users.

3 - Is it a cloud or a desktop system?

The database is hosted for mobility and other benefits, yet the application is installed on your desktop computer. You may install the application to as many computers you want. For example if you own one license then you may install the application on two or more computers but you will only be allowed to open it up from one computer at a time. This helps mobility since you may want to access customer data from both office, home or country house computer.

4 - What is the back end database?

We use the latest Microsoft SQL Express 2016 as a back end database

5 - Are my data save on the cloud?

We host the databases on branded and reliable data centres overseas that ensure availability, daily backups and high internet bandwidth.

6 - Can I host my data locally?

No, you can host your data locally, Wendbooks is offered as SaaS (Software as a Service). Before you completely discard the idea of having your databases hosted on the cloud, just think about the cost of setting up your own infrastructure plus the cost of the support needed to maintain both infrastructure  and databases. After considering that, we are sure that you maybe, change your mind for hosting your own databases locally. 🙂

7 - What is the licensing policy?

The software is offered as SaaS (Software as a Service). The license fee is per database per user and it is based on a monthly / annual subscription basis.

8 - How much does it cost for a small business and one user license?

For a small database up to 100 mb and one user license subscription prices start from as low as Euro 40.00 per month (vat excluded). As your business database grows then you may consider changing to another database plan. See our prices page for a full price listing. If you have something in mind then simply contact us to discuss your needs. I am sure we will work something out for you. 🙂

9 - Is the subscription price fixed?

Prices  are fixed at the time of the agreement for the selected plan and number of users, and will remain the same during the period you keep your subscription active except in cases where other uncontrolled outside factors determine differently. In case that you change the plan or add more users then a new agreement / contract is required and the prices given for the new plan and or new users will be the prices listed at the date of the new agreement.

10 - What are the differences between Wendbooks Plans?

We strongly believe that even the smallest business has complexity, requires procedures like inventory, Invoicing, multi sales orders, purchase orders and analytics; thus Wendbooks plans are different in database capacity (number of transactions) and not in modules. Small company, then fewer transactions, small database. Growing company, then more transactions, bigger database capacity. You can change plans, add or remove user licenses at any time. See the plans here below.

For example, attachments of any kind, item pictures, number of customers, items, suppliers etc my affect and increase the database size.
