AnyBook Professional Advanced is the top of the line of a series of three programs which make up the award winning AnyBook family of shareware for small and self-publishers.
Its foundation rests on AnyBook's Basic and Professional Standard editions. Like its two siblings, it generates invoices and billing statements, keeps track of inventory, handles book returns, produces sales reports, records customer payments, tracks consignment items, and creates customer mailing lists. It has an integrated customer contact manager, email and browser capabilities, a weight calculator for orders, bank deposit reporting, back order processing, and an export feature for exporting invoice, sales and credit card data. In addition to these Basic and Standard features, the Advanced Edition has the ability to convert invoices and statements to HTML, Microsoft Word or text documents. Invoices and statements can be sent via email either in the text of the message or as an attachment. It includes an internal credit card processor, telephony features including two separate phone dialers (a basic and advanced version), currency conversation, extensive and versatile export and import functions, integrated emailing functions, and one of the easiest-to-use royalty accounting systems in the industry. The royalty accounting feature is an entire software program in itself, fully integrated so it works seamlessly with AnyBook and AnyBook's data files. This portion of the program provides a wide range of options. Over 235 different royalty combinations are available for nearly any royalty arrangement. It also includes the ability to create royalty statements which combine an author's advances, payments, subsidiary sales and other royalty activity into one account. AnyBook comes with an extensive help system, sample files, and a guided program tour. (This is a 16-bit program. See AnyBook Professional for 32-bit versions.)
