Our Story

Ledger1 was developed by small business owners for small business owners.  The goal was to create an easy to use Excel spreadsheet that does many of the tasks that the market leading software packages do.  We did not set out to try to duplicate all the functionality of a full accounting software package, but rather offer a simple-to-use alternative for individuals and small businesses who don't require all the advanced features offered by the big name providers.

Our Vision

Ledger1 would like to empower Excel users everywhere, whether they are sole proprietors or employed by large corporations, to use and customize Ledger1 to meet their exact needs.    We envision adding new spreadsheets in the future, that will link to Ledger1 and add functionality for different components of the business process. We also see a need to develop various Ledger1 templates customized for specific  business structures and industries.     

System Requirements

Ledger1 requires macro enabled Excel 2007 or later.  Computer speed and memory requirements are higher for users with larger data requirements (10,000 or more transactions).  Older and slower computers might not be able to use the photo slideshow feature of Ledger1.  Larger files will also benefit from using the 64 bit version of Excel instead of the 32 bit.
