EasyLite does not require the user to learn a new accounting method. Instead,
it just automates the existing manual billing system resulting in much faster speed, minimization of the possibility of errors and instant retrieval of information.

The power of EasyLite lies in it's friendliness to user which brings the user and
the accounts closer. Efforts have been made to produce the printed reports and
various books of accounts in the same format as the existing manual system.
