About Stansoft Linux

Stansoft Linux financial accounting software offers a complete accounting solution for every business. It utilizes an IBM Informix database, a relational database management system giving you a system that is simple, flexible, and productive. Having no limit on the number of users per installation, allows for scalability from very small to very large companies. The Linux operating system was chosen to provide a stable, true multi-user environment. The user interface is ncurses / terminal based to optimize data entry efficiency. With accounting being a text based activity, a character based system is the perfect match for the task. Not only does a terminal application provide for a fast system, but it also allows for easy remote deployment and can be run on a virtual private server (VPS) in the cloud. Stansoft is available for immediate download as a fully functional version.

Included in the suite are modules for petroleum marketers and convenience store operators. The Fuel Management, Fuel Dispatch and Retail Sales modules were developed for petroleum wholesalers, distributors, marketers and c-store operators. There is also a Gilbarco Passport back office interface.
