What is the total cost of this, and is it per year?
$399 US Dollars -- total. Forever. Yep, that's it. You pay one-time, and
you're good to go. If in a year or two down the road, you want to just
order the updated version with refinements as we've done them, that's fine.
Otherwise, you can customize for your needs and keep using it forever...
without additional costs.
Does this system generate contracts?
Yes, this system absolutely generates contracts! In addition to logging
all of our clients and potential clients, and recording quotes given to
them, etc., generating contracts is definitely one of the greatest features.
It will produce both contracts for ARTIST and for the BUYER.... and definitely
save you time!
How many users can use this system at once?
A limitation of Microsoft Works is that multiple users CAN use the database
from different computers at the same time, to view and work with the database,
but it will only allow for ONE user to save. For example, "user1" opens
the database.... they have full control of it. A second user on the network
could also open up the database file, and have full use of it, but would
not be able to save any of their changes within the database ... it will
basically say "read-only file" when that 2nd or 3rd user opens up the database
file. But they will still be able to use and view all the data, print contracts
from it, etc.
Is there a Mac version?
We don't specifically have a Mac version.... but there is a Mac program
that reads and writes any Works database, word processor, and spreadsheet
files. I'm not a Mac user, so my knowledge on that is limited to just what
I've found on the internet. It appears that Microsft created Works v. 1
through 4 for the Mac, and those versions appear to available for free
on the internet. WE DO NOT OFFER TECHNICAL ASSISTANCE FOR MAC USERS.
In the office, I use a PC, but most of the time I'm on my I-Pad. Can you
explain how this will work? I would like to be able to access Booking Pro
while traveling, etc. (similar question: is there a 'cloud' version of
this accessible from anywhere?_
With our office setup, we 'host' the main Booking Pro on one of the office
computer (it's a PC that has Microsoft Works). For remote use on our iPads,
laptops, phones, etc.... we use www.GoToMyPc.com to login to our main office
computer. This costs only $9.99 per month, and allows us to login and use
the software remotely on *any* platform regardless if it will run Microsoft
Works or not.
Is this software compatible with Linux?
I am unsure if there is a comparable software package like Microsoft Works
that runs on Linux. I believe there is an OpenOffice-type that has been
ported to run on Linux.... But I honestly am unsure as I'm not a Linux
user, and don't know a whole lot about it's current applications (though
back in the day I loved Linux!)
Is there a trial version to download and use?
No, there is not a trial version available, though we would be glad to
do video conferencing with you to run through it, or to post specific videos
on this page of functions that you'd like to see executed.
Can you add fields such as custom contract clauses, artist company name,
maybe a task list, etc.?
Yes, the possibilities are endless. You can add, delete, or rename fields...
and even reorganize and move fields and data entry points on the working
screen. You can also customize the "list" or "spreadsheet" screens.
I saw from the website this is only $399 ... is that per user?
No, that is TOTAL.
Do I have to have Microsoft Works on my computer to use this?
Yes, you do. Well, for the database screen anyway.... Virtually every PC
computer has Microsoft Works. And our understanding is Mac and other systems
have compatible software packages as well. If you definitely do NOT have
Microsoft Works on your PC computer, we can arrange to get a version of
it for you. First check the link in the right-hand side... click on the
SAMPLEFILE, select "run", and if it opens you definitely have Works on
your computer already. THE CONTRACT TEMPLATES THEMSELVES, WHICH GENERICALLY
COULD BE USED WITH ANY PROGRAM, ARE WORTH $399 alone, AND COULD BE MODIFIED
TO WORK WITH MICROSOFT WORD, OR ANY OTHER WORDPROCESSOR OR YOUR EXISTING
CONTACT MANAGER USING A "MAIL MERGE" FUNCTION OF THAT PROGRAM.... or to
use as just a template for a great contract! The database management screen
is made in the Works environment. NOTE THAT MICROSOFT WORKS MAY NOT BE
COMPATIBLE WITH SOME NEWER PC OPERATING SYSTEMS, SUCH AS WINDOWS 10. We
have, however, successfully installed Works (affordably purchased on eBay
for around $10 in most cases) on Windows 7 systems, Windows 8, Windows
Vista, Windows XP, etc.)
Why did you choose Microsoft Works for this system?
Well, it's kind of long story. Back in the early 1990s, when our agency
opened, Microsoft Works offered one of the best database systems. It came
bundled with our computers, and we just immediately started using it for
our needs. As time went on, we discovered Works continued to be updated
with each new operating system and computer we upgraded to... so we just
kept using it. Microsoft Work is an all-in-one database (our working screen),
spreadsheet (our list screen), and word-processor (essentially what the
contract templates are produced in). It is VERY easy to customize, runs
very fast..... and is SIMPLE ! MS Works was released with virtually every
computer running WIndows XP (the world's most used operating system) and
WIndows Vista. Works is now "unsupported" by Microsoft, but is still installed
on the majority of PC computers.
As an experienced user of this system, what do you feel are some of the
limitations with it?
Quite honestly, there are very few limitations, and this system basically
runs our company. Again, being honest... a couple of limitations this system
has are: 1) Microsoft Works isn't designed for network usage, so
it' not always friendly of multiple users using it. Can't have multiple
users saving to one data file. 2) Not a problem, but the field names are
limited in size. So we use abbreviated codes such "Prfmnc Loction" instead
of "Performance Location." 3) There is a limit to the ammount of data that
you can enter into any one field based upon your computer memory. This
rarely is an issue with us anymore, once we figured out that limitation
of MWorks, but if you ever get an error when going to print a contract
that says"Too much data in one of the fields..." you'll know you just have
to reduce your longest field. We have created the field sizes so that,
as long as you stay within those, you shouldn't have any problems.
Why is this better than Product ABC?
Mainly because of four very important points: 1) It is CHEAPER! In most
cases, thousands of dollars cheaper. This allows small to medium size agencies
and managers to be able to afford it. 2) It WORKS BETTER than all the rest....
and yes, we've tried them. This system stays locally on your computer,
you can use it on a laptop or office computer, and you maintain full control
over everything. 3) It is so EASY to customize and use. You can customize
all the elements if you wish (working screen, list screen, and the contracts).
4) It's READY TO USE with no modification! If you want, we can simply add
your logos and addresses to it before sending the system to you, and it's
ready to use. We've been modifying and refining this system for over 15
years, so it's setup to use for virtually any type of booking situation!
You can always modify and customize it later at any time.
If I have problems with this getting this system to work like I want it
to, will you help me?
Absolutely! Just e-mail email@example.com or give us a call
Why is it so cheap? What's the catch?
This has been the most frequent question we've received since marketing
this! There is no catch... at all. We have no money invested into this
system to recoup, except for the time over the last 20 years creating it.
We use it for our own entertainment management company and booking agency...
and we feel others will get great benefit from it. Oh, and we're tired
of looking at contracts that we receive from artists and other agents which
don't cover "all the bases" and are sloppy and unorganized! :-)
