TurboCASH development implementing Firebird database

TurboCASH is working on the implementation of the Firebird opensource database.
Currently TurboCASH is storing his data into the Borland BDE-paradox datafiles. As we want to move to total opensource components Firebird is the first step we take.
At the moment the database is seperated from the application, we can rework the application code from Delphi to Lazarus and deliver TurboCASH as a multi-platform application.
Plan is to deliver in March the first stable TurboCASH-Firebird version.

TurboCASH 3-7-4-98 Released

We have released the 3-7-4-98 version that will be for now the latest version working with the BDE database.
Our developers have started to work on the Firebird open source database implementation. We hope to deliver a new stable version in March that will support a standalone- and server installation.
Also a migrationtool to convert from BDE to Firebird is in plan.
This is the first step to transfer TurboCASH to a multi-operating system application that will support installation on Linux, Windows and MAC.

TurboCASH Payroll Released

Currently all the commercial Payroll programs are dominated by the "Annual Update Syndrome". That is the Developers want to "gouge" the users for their tax tables every year. This is the source that drives the whole industry. They also have complex Dialogue based systems that talk you through the nuances of each tax system. The results is dry, obtuse programs that take days of in house training and installation and come in at a really expensive price. Further, these are then run independently of the Accounting system and each user has to reenter the data in his accounting system . Users have to figure out what to Debit andwhat to Credit.... read more

A TurboCASH roadmap for Linux

A TurboCASH roadmap for Linux

11 September 2003


Do not lose sight of the fact that TurboCASH is a General ledger and not a front end workflow or ERP system. This applies no matter how big we get. In an enterprise world we would be a JD Edwards, not a SAP. It is our job to talk to all the workflow and ERP systems, but in the end we file transactions into accounts and report on them.

All the plugins and partnerships is what gets us the enterprise stuff, but that is totally variable. What always stays the same in every company is that they all have a ledger in the back room. So while we will design a generalised stock and invoicing system. This is going to fall short of everyones expectations and in fact if they require specialised or complex systems, these will best be written outside of TurboCASH.... read more

What TurboCASH Is (and Isn't)

11 September 2003

TurboCASH is:

a modern program (designed 1998) and implemented 1999 to 2003. This makes it the only major accounting package designed after the advent of the World Wide Web. All other major competitors in this area are legacy systems written in 16 Bit technology that have been clumsily extended to incorporate the growing presence of the Internet;

it represents 30 man years of work. Philip Copeman, Sylvain Nzala, Danie van Zyl, Faizel Razak and Sylvain Mbumba have worked full time for 5 years on the design, development and debugging of the system and have been helped part time by around 20 Accountants, software specialists and consultants totalling around a further 10 man years. ... read more
