Newsagent Account Management System - System with Reports tor managing Customer Accounts

I am looking for a software which is both easy to use and accurate. The software will be used daily and the main aim of it will be to fully automate the calculations and the creating of Invoices for certain customers that the Newsagent (A local Shop which sells Newspaper/Magazines/other items) [url removed, login to view] the Newsagent must carry out all tasks using paper and therefore is susceptible to loss. Also all calculations are done manually, so there is a high possibility of [url removed, login to view] proposed software should fully automate the calculations and the creating of Invoices

This software will be used for creating Invoices for 2 types of Customers that a Newsagent (Local Shop)) deals with, these are Newspaper and Business Customers.

Newspaper Customers have an order of Newspapers or Magazines which is given to the Newsagent and the Newsagent delivers the Customers orders on the specified days. The Customer is then sent an invoice for the Newspapers/Magazines with a delivery charge added. The customer can also add misc items to their bill. The customers can book 'Holidays' where they do not want a delivery, this should be taken of the invoice. Also customers can provide vouchers which can be used to pay for titles and this effects the bill too. Also manufacture issues should be maintainable so that customers are charged correctly.

Business Customers are local businesses which hold an account with the Newsagent. These businesses can put items onto the account and the Newsagent will bill them for these. The business can pay in full amounts of part-pay their bill so a 'live' account balance should be shown.

Software should also be able to backup/restore data, Manage user accounts amongst other functions


There are about 15 reports required in total. Most are based on the Customer/Business details and their Invoices, there are also some to aid the Newsagent with daily/weekly tasks. Reports should be well laid out and have all the required information. Also paper usage must be kept to a minimum so printing multiple invoices to a page is [url removed, login to view] reports should have customisable fields which can be maintained from within the software.
