ALMdesk 4th edition is a program to manage laundry activities (articles acceptance and restitution, customers' management, statistics) particularly cured for the simplicity of use; simply clicking on graphic images or touching them, if you have a touch-screen, develops the procedures for garments reception and restitution; it isn't a cash register for tax purposes but the operative procedure is intuitive and analogous to that used in manual compilation of receipts and tax documents too.

ALMdesk 4th edition maintains all experiences and functions already realized in its previous versions used since 1995 (1st edition, 2nd edition, AlmDesk7). Moreover, ALMdesk manages the customer list, the payments with personal fidelity card, the aggregated statistics about articles received and returned, the price tables and their percentage change, the data export into Office and Open Office and much more.

ALMdesk 4th edition is fully compliance with all Windows O.S. after XP (to date, no problem with Windows 8), and runs on Linux with Wine environment.

Starting from the previous version, all messages use unicode and, therefore, they can be easily translated into any other language. Currently, there are the English and Italian and a translation to be improved was made ​​for French, Spanish and Arabic. In any case, you  can change/convert all ALMdesk messages in another language by simply translating and saving them into a new file "NewLanguage.als".

Main features of AlmDesk:

  • Strictest confidence and ability to install the program on a removable drive, without leaving any data on the computer of your laundry

  • Management of customers' loyalty card through which you can make points promotions, payments by a prepayed credit, assign customized prices to one or more agreement customers. The points are accumulated when  the articles are received and can be used to reduce the final payment.
  • Data export to "Office" and "Open Office", with full possibility to configure what export and laundry activity periods that reporting to. In Office environment, data conversion is practically available in any format.
  • Compilation of transfer documents, very useful when the laundry acts with more collecting points and centralizes articles treatments. Fixed a period (usually one working day), a report of all acceptances will be produced with corresponding articles.
