Kraft: A No-Nonsense Office Assistant

Filed under
Software

Operating a small business or home office is always fraught with tasks based on creating and maintaining office documents. Often, entrepreneurs are stuck using different apps to handle each phase of record-keeping and pricing business proposals for each customer. Why stretch those tasks over multiple business apps when Kraft can do it all in one package?

Kraft lets you create, customize and manage your business correspondence and planning. It uses a MySQL back end and helps you calculate the cost of doing business with clients.

Among its features are customer management using the KDE environment and KDE address book, automated creation of offers, invoices and similar documents, and configurable report generation in PDF format. But don't let the KDE desktop deter you from considering Kraft if you run the GNOME desktop. Kraft integrates seamlessly.

The installation prompt notes the fact that the Terminal app can be used to develop on your Chromebook. It also suggests that users will be able to run native apps and command-line tools seamlessly and securely. Considering the fact that Chrome OS is powered by the Linux kernel, this can only mean one thing. Read more
