Managing the board cash box is usually not among the most popular tasks on board. However, one should keep track of the expenses and the cash position. And with BoardCash this is a cinch.
In BoardCash you can enter all deposits of the crew members and all expenses from the cash box. Also special cases, such as when a crew member makes a purchase, without paying from cash box, are handled automatically. It is also very easy to enter purchases where the total sum also includes private purchases of individual crew members.
BoardCash also supports the booking of expenses in which not all persons are involved, as well as a simplified entry for equal deposits of several persons. Of course BoardCash can also take into account different shares of the crew members in the board cash (e.g. for couples and singles in the crew).
A particularly useful feature is the handling of multiple currencies. For this the current exchange rates of the ECB can be loaded into BoardCash. No matter whether the trip leads through 2 or 10 currency zones, BoardCash always calculates the correct cash position and the account balances of the crew members in relation to a fixed standard currency.
At the end of the trip, or whenever you want to draw up a balance sheet, you will receive the final evaluation “Who pays what to whom” for the cash balance with a tip. You can also print out or save the lists of expenses and payments including any receipts as well as the evaluation including the cash balance as a PDF.
And since BoardCash is an Add-on from the Logbook Suite it can import some data directly from Logbook: the crew list, port charges, fuel costs after refueling or the pro rata costs of fuel for a trip in your Logbook.
The Add-on BoardCash can be used in Logbook Suite on Mac, with Windows and on the iPad and in Logbook Suite PhoneTools on iPhone. The new version 3.21 comes with new improved user interface for the iPhone.
With the iOS app BoardCash (min. iOS 13.2), which is available in the Apple App Store in addition to Logbook Suite, you can also use the BoardCash add-on on the iPhone.
Your BoardCash files can be copied between both apps using a cloud service or iTunes as well as via our SYNC service. For SYNC we also offer special subscriptions only for BoardCash files.
The functions for importing data from the digital logbook Logbook (crew list, port charges, fuel costs) are not shown in the app BoardCash. But as soon as your BoardCash file is opened in the app in Logbook Suite, all functions are available as usual.
BoardCash is of course suitable not only for the cash box on sailing cruises, but also for all other cases in which a group of persons are jointly funded—such as group travel, commune and much more.
The user-interface of the app BoardCash can be set up to German, English, Dutch and Swedish just like Logbook Suite.
The start window of the app BoardCash offers handy functions for opening, loading, saving, and deleting BoardCash files. From version 3.3. the start window offers also an update function, so that your BoardCash file has always the newest version.
Licenses for the Add-on BoardCash of Logbook Suite are also valid for the app BoardCash.
In the demo mode of BoardCash you can create up to 9 entries (expenses and/or deposits). Entering a serial number converts your trial version of BoardCash into an unlimited full version that can be used on all device types — both in Logbook Suite and in the app BoardCash.
