QL Small Traders Pack

Released in 1986, The QL Small Traders Pack consisted of no less than 10 programs designed to assist management of any small business on a single mdv cartridge and priced at a remarkable £19.95.

The modules included sales and purchase ledgers, mailing list, stock control, phone directory, billboard display, cartridge clone and others.

Advertised in the back of Sinclair QL World, the package won a loyal band of users who wanted to employ the QL in business without too much cost and complexity. SD Microsystems went on to release a version 2 of QL Small Trader priced @ £24.95 on 2 mdvs and an add on package, QL Invoicer, for those traders who needed to produce invoices and statements.

The Invoicer automatically posted transactions to the sales ledger file.

The series was rounded off with QL Stock Accounting for expanded machines which increased the level of integration by linking the invoicer with the stock file as well as the sales ledger.

SD Microsystems also produced General Ledger to handle cash and bank transactions and print reports such as Trading and Profit v Loss. Some of their software received mostly positive reviews in QL World, QL S.U.B. and QL Technical Review.
