No. 6 -- Ora Time and Expense
Ora Time and Expense is a simple AIR app you can use to create and keep track of time sheets, expense reports and invoices. Document formats supported include HTML, Excel, CSV and XML.
The app features a timer that will track the time you spend on a task and then log the duration to a time sheet. Sales receipts can be scanned with a webcam, and they will be automatically attached to expense reports.
No. 7 -- AgileAgenda
This project scheduling manager dynamically adjusts schedules to changing conditions that play out across a project's life cycle: start and end dates for tasks are automatically generated based on information you provide, such as priority and resource availability. Data is in standard XML format, and it can be exported to PDF and shared through the Web.
Presently in beta, AgileAgenda will also include a developer API, allowing third parties to create applications that integrate with the Web services at AgileAgenda.com.
A companion app, AgileTracker, adds time tracking to AgileAgenda.
No. 8 -- Kinetik
This AIR-rified take on an ERP application suite offers access to a variety of tools and information tied to the running of your business, through a series of application modules. The software includes modules to manage billing, accounts receivable, accounts payable and banking accounts. For an extra fee, developer Alivebox will custom-make modules for customers with specialized business management needs.
Alivebox boasts that, because most of the nitty-gritty number-crunching happens on the server, the AIR-based Kinetik client app doesn't require a PC with heavy-duty specs in order to run well.
Kinetik is reaching the final development stage of Version 1.0, with a release expected in a couple of months. Plans are already in place for Version 2.0, which will also handle accounting, production and payroll.
