Short definition

Of course, it’s not just the program that’s needed. To be able to use this, a computer must be present.
Since in practice still the most different devices are to be found and certainly for certain tasks also their
purpose, should be looked shortly after, what is really needed. You will not always have to buy a new
computer, but the old one is not always useful to use.

If you have an old Pentium III PC with at least 1 GHz clock speed, which has at least 512 MB of RAM, a
DVD drive and about 200 MB of free space on the hard drive, you can almost get started. Maybe it’s
better to think about something before. These minimum requirements are sufficient to install and use
the program. Admittedly, the use is not very effective. Therefore we recommend at least as a
prerequisite for a pleasant work:

  • A PC with Pentium III processor (or compatible) with 1 GHz clock speed, better faster
  • 1 GB of main memory
  • Free hard disk space of at least 500 MB DVD drive
  • Graphics: Super VGA with at least 1024 x 768 pixels resolution (and the matching monitor)

Oh yes, Windows 7 (or higher) should be installed. Of course you also need a printer. With such equipment you will be able to work well with One Less Desc accounting. If it does not fit with individual
details, you can consider before the new investment if you do not upgrade your device. Memory is e.g.
not very expensive. Even a small hard drive can be replaced with little capital for a larger one. Since you
will soon realize that larger plates in the ratio are billi¬ger than small – so skimping makes no sense. Is it
true in almost all details not (processor too slow, memory too short, the hard drive was already
overcrowded and the CD drive is one of the old, slow), then you should not think of the instalation, but
to a reinstallation. This is less expensive and has more future.

Not compatible?
You work with an Apple computer and the operating system Mac OS X or have Linux installed on your
PC? Then One Less Desc accounting does not work, because it was developed only for the operating
system Windows. However, it is still possible to use it if you use virtualization software. There are quite
a few of them now that work with different operating systems, such as VMWare etc. Please note,
however, that support can only be granted for pure Windows solutions.

On Apple computers with an Intel processor, Boot Camp can even be booted with Mac OS X or Windows using the Apple-supplied program. The Parallels software even allows parallel execution of both
operating systems.

 A short definition

Before it really starts, a short explanation. Order processing and inventory management, these two
terms for a computer-aided commercial accounting system have already been mentioned in the
previous sections and also play a role in practice over and over again. Are these two terms for the same
thing? Or are there really differences?

Quite apart from the fact that it usually means different categories of services, we can agree on this
book and the underlying software: An order processing stores all the data necessary to manage orders
and all necessary documents ( Offers, delivery notes, invoices, credits, reminders and so on) to print
with it. Of course, the necessary data (customers, suppliers, articles) can also be managed accordingly so
that features of a merchandise management can be found in the order management.

An ERP system focuses on the data. Mostly it is about larger quantities and the administration must be
taken over by an efficient data bank system. It may also involve production and different goods (finished
goods, semi-manufactured goods, raw materials and supplies) must be managed. Of course, such an
inventory management can also write offers and invoices. The reminders come then but usually already
from the bookkeeping.

In this sense, the module Order in One Less Desc is an order processing. It will still be shown that a stock
accounting can be carried out in a very comfortable way and that a purchasing system (purchasing) is
connected to it.
