Easily do your church or charity's bookkeeping, including simple and automatic fund accounting, with the ACCOUNTS software program.
There are two main versions of ACCOUNTS:
Whether you use the Network version or the Standalone version, pricing does not depend on the number of computers on which you install ACCOUNTS.
Although the Network versions of ACCOUNTS are not web-based, it is possible to install the Network Client version on computers outside of your office to access the database in your office remotely, though the setup is a bit complicated. The database access on the computers outside your office will of course be slower, because the data transfers are working at Internet speeds rather than local area network speeds, which are much faster.
We actually recommend using other of our Multiple User Options, rather than the Network versions, if you want to have multiple users who are not on the same local network access the same ACCOUNTS database.
The ACCOUNTS Network version allows up to five users on five different computers (usually on your local-area network) to access the program simultaneously.
Most organizations only need the Standalone version of ACCOUNTS. That's because, even if they have a network, only one person really needs access to ACCOUNTS. That user might want to have ACCOUNTS installed on a computer in the organization's office, and another computer at home, but the Network version isn't usually used for that. (You can install multiple copies of the Standalone version, at no additional charge, and copy the database file back and forth between those computers.)

Install the Network Server version on the main user's computer, and the Network Client version on any additional users' computers. The Network Server version should normally not be installed on a real Windows server computer, but rather on an actual user's computer.
You can find installation help for the Network version in the program's Help or the manual (readable online at Network Versions of ACCOUNTS).
With the ACCOUNTS Network versions, the same license key is used for all installed copies of ACCOUNTS on your network.
