Screen Shots

4th Quarter applications support multiple user areas, resizeable windows, and multi-page screens. You can audit multiple journals, transaction histories, and GL account entries on-screen simultaneously in separate windows.

Because it's possible to open a nearly unlimited number of windows we have designed our screens by embedding action buttons on each screen, rather than forcing users to rely on a complex, ever-changing set of menu items.

4th Quarter supports over 40 different seamlessly integrated modules with nearly 1,000 different screens. Each user can assign each module a different color scheme.

Here are a few examples that illustrate the clean, powerful design of our graphical interface.

Control Screens

4th Quarter offers you the choice of four control screens: menu view, list view, map view, and bar view.

These control screens provide centralized access to all areas of 4th Quarter.

Access to individual area can be restricted to specific users or specific groups of users.

Customer List

Invoice Line Items Screen

4th Quarter implements a "virtual invoice", that is a comprehensive record of sales, order, shipment, and return histories.

Printed invoices are generate from the virtual invoice by specifying particular shipments or consolidating multiple shipments.

The virtual invoice does away with the need for separate quotes, back orders and credit memos. All of these are handled by the virtual invoice.

The Invoice entry screen has separate pages for specifying the customer, the line items, and items to be returned.

Invoice can individually set to display items in either a stock-item or service-item format.

Line items in stock-item format.

Line items in service-item format.
