Why Frappe Books?

Offline Desktop software is a rare breed these days. Offline Accounting software even more so. Existing solutions like Tally and GNUCash are either paid or lack in terms of UX. This is why we need Frappe Books.

Why Desktop?

Cloud apps compromise the ownership of your data. All your data must go through a server and you are bound by limitations set by the server. Pricing could change anytime, and you don’t have the choice to use an older version. With traditional desktop apps, you have much more control over your data and you can keep using a version that works for you.

Free and Open Source

Frappe Books is free software. This means it comes with the four essential freedoms. You are allowed to run it as you wish, you can look at its source code and modify it.
