Keeping a close eye on incoming and outgoing flow of your budged, especially in a business is key to achieving success. Computer applications greatly enhance this task, with Yapbam being only one of the many utilities that let you easily manage multiple accounts and transactions.
Simple, well-organized interface
The application sports a clean design, with a slightly customizable interface to make it suit your style. The upper toolbar lets you quickly navigate to areas of interest, while the rest of the space is dedicated to viewing, inserting and managing existing database elements.
Create and account and set up currency details
In order to analyze your budget flow, an account must be created. This is one of the easiest steps, the whole process only requiring you to provide an account name and initial balance. The currency symbol is based on your location, with the possibility to select this from the preferences menu. Also currency-wise, you can view latest stock values with an integrated currency converter.
When the account is ready, you can begin justifying outgoing money by creating transactions. One or more can be created in the form of a single entry. You are required to write down a short description, along with date and money related details. Payment mode can be customized, with the possibility to create multiple methods to use later on.
Good but far from being a pro
Unfortunately, you cannot attach any external files to transactions or choose to forward it via email, and it would have come in handy for businesses. What’s more, there is no function that lets you issue reports, while the export function requires you to manually write down the desired output format, but supported ones are not mentioned, nor selectable.
A few last words
On an ending note, Yapbam might seem like a simple application, with little business enhancement possibilities. However, even though it is not suitable for large enterprises, it can be of help at home, or small to medium businesses. It’s easy to use, light on system resources, so if you’re looking for a simple way of looking after your budget, it’s worth a try.
