Distribution, Wholesale, Retail, Warehousing, Construction, Contracting & Manufacturing
LILAC is a broadly based commercial software package which provides business management modules in a fully integrated balancing double-entry accounting database. LILAC maintains an electronic document database for all required commercial and accounting transactions. It provides a comprehensive reporting system, for accounts, stock, sales analysis, and other topics through to full financial results.
Transaction Based Data-Capture
All documents within LILAC allow the user to essentially operate in a 'form filling in' environment. 'WYSIWYG', what you see on the monitor, is what you get when a document, i.e Sales Order, is printed, emailed, or stored. All transactions, such as purchases, sales, stock transfers, etc, are processed with a WYSIWYG document orientation, which means re-keying duplicate entry of data for multiple purposes is completely eliminated.
Windows Graphical User Interface
Very high quality document formatting is implemented with multiple fonts, text & graphics, line drawings, rendered 2D & 3D images, bit-mapped images, including Internet graphics and digital camera shots. These are all available for the production of orders, invoices, statements, and reports.
Multi-Ledger Automation
Subsidiary ledgers such as debtors, creditors, stock, payroll, balance sheet and trading ledger are automatically posted in real-time as a natural consequence of the processing or creation of source documents such as invoices, credit notes, time costing, requisitions, etc. Profit or Loss & Balance Sheet reports are available in real-time as a direct consequence of transaction processing.
Simultaneous Multiple Accounting Period Operation
LILAC permits the simultaneous operation in many accounting periods and multiple financial years within the same database. Accounts staff may continue to operate in past periods for finalisation and revision purposes while sales staff proceed unhindered in later periods.
Unlimited Numbers of Companies
Within a single database as many individually balancing company (branch, subsidiary, dealer, etc) ledgers may be maintained with automatic real-time "loan account" posting generated by the software to reflect inter-company transactions. "Head-office" debtors & creditors provided at multiple levels if required.

Client Server Structure
LILAC uses a Client/Server structure. The "Server Program" on the "Server Computer" accesses and manages your database files. Connections are accepted from your "Client Computers" located anywhere on your local network (your premises). This organisation protects the database files from damage by external computers, and provides a very secure, natural "fire-wall" effect.

The protocols used are similar to Client/Server connections used by eMail Servers. This allows many connections from many computers simultaneously, and very efficiently implements a true multi-user and multi-tasking user interface from any Windows PC.
WYSIWYG Document Interface
LILAC implements a "What You See Is What You Get" document interface for users and operators of the software.

This means images presented on the screen for a wide range of accounting, business, and technical features, appear as electronic images of paper documents, allowing the operator to work with a very natural and intuitive "form filling-in" regime.

Most LILAC documents are organised in A4 Landscape orientation. This allows multiple column presentations to be laid out legibly. Colour coding is used to indicate the data entry capabilities of a document to the operator on a field by field basis.
Open Ended Database
LILAC implements a completely general open-ended transaction history for all accounts in the database. This includes customer, supplier, product, employee, job, trading accounts, balance sheet accounts, etc.

The database may be allowed to grow providing the ability to perform sophisticated analysis of sales, purchases and other activities in full detail on a wide range of combinations: by product, by customer, by supplier, by group, by territory, etc.
Accounting Database
Integrated accounting, 'integrated', in this sense, means that the natural processing of business transactions as WYSIWYG documents in LILAC results in the creation of the correct debits and credits in a balancing "double-entry" accounting system, with nil effort by the operator.

LILAC maintains a comprehensive set of accounts reflecting the accounting implications of multitudinous business activities - sales, purchasing, stock, costing, assets, liabilities, payroll, time-costing, loans, accruals, provisions, etc, etc.

Transactions are added to the appropriate accounts dynamically in real-time. This means that up-to-the-minute financial reports, including Profit or Loss & Balance Sheet are instantly available as a result of normal day-to-day business transaction processing.
Three Phase Purchase Order Sequencing
Purchase Order >> Goods Received >> Purchase Invoice
Three Phase Sale Order Sequencing
Sales Order >> Work Order >> Tax Invoice
Documents are stored and retrievable. Documents are printed and emailed as the appear on the monitor.
Multi Entity Operations
LILAC provides support for a virtually unlimited number of different trading, or accounting entities nested in a single head office database. For example, within AA Head Office (AAHO), may nest AABR, AASY, AAMB, AAPT, etc, etc.

Each entity may represent a branch, a company, a department, a warehouse or whatever is needed. The crucial point is that each entity has its own balancing set of debits and credits and can produce stock, sales, P & L, Balance sheet reports, individually, when required.

Often subsidiary entities are only required for trading purposes and most balance sheet accounts are held in a "Head Office" ledger. LILAC automates this permitting invoicing and related operations in the subsidiary ledger with debtors, creditors and loan accounts automatically adjusted to the head office ledger.

Warehouse Control
Manufacturing Control
Warehouse manager provides control and stock tracking in large warehouse situations. Scanners communicate barcode information in real-time with the LILAC database. Products are received into warehouse locations, moved from location to location, utilised/sold, and despatched outbound by scanning barcodes, providing real-time visibility of product status through LILAC connections.

Standard LILAC software allows the user to instantly generate barcodes containing product and invoice information for individual products, cartons (containing multiple products), and pallets carrying mixed loads of cartons and products.
