What Is Abc software
ABC is a high quality, user friendly software package for the analysis of costs of investment projects in agriculture. It has been designed to serve two main user categories: 
- those who need to organise cost details in a proper manner consistent with financial accounting rules, with meaningful combination of the costs of (fixed) permanent assets with the cost of consumables and human labour and
- those who demand a package that can be used with no difficulty after one hour instruction or training. ABC stands for Activity Based Costing, since this is the adopted methodology.

The package is aiming to provide special scientific support to any agricultural project needs (such as Cost Analysis of a variety of crops and plants of any type and nature). ABC major features include:
  • Multiple Crop environment

    Unlimited number of Crops can be included in the same project, enabling the user to use a common database from which it derives all individual cost items (eg, machinery and tools, types and costs of labor, materials, types and cost of land). In this way can provide a comparative costing for many Crops.

  • Multiple cultivating operations(unlimited crop’s operations) support.

    Unlimited farming Operations can be linked (added) to each Crop. Each one of them may have its own Needs and a time schedule (when it will happened throughout the life of the plant) that it will identifies this operation during Crop's or Project's life.

  • Multiple Operation Needs(machinery, labour, raw materials, etc).

    Many constituents (unlimited theoretically) may be included to each cutlivating Operation. These constituents have been named Operation Needs By the term Operation Needs is meant all materials (eg raw materials, pesticides, etc.), labor, energy and fuel, rental operations, machinery and tools etc. that are required by the Operation.

  • Specialised Operation scheduler module.

    Each Cultivating operation may have a separate schedule (annually) which uniquely identifies whan each (ie what each year) is repeated during the lifetime of the plant.

  • Unique Database for each project.

    Abc engine uses a unique database to store each project's data providing with this way a complete documentation regarding how cost analysis results came up. In addition to that a single file containing project's database and cost analysis results is beeing created with a extension ".abc". This file may be edited or shared to other abc users.

  • Reporting module with data export features.

    A specialised Report Module has been included to Abc software not only providing the standard reporting functionallity but also allowing user to export (through standard copy-paste windows functionallity) charts that are part of user interface.
