Simcom.com, a system integrator since 1986, is also a provider of complete Accounting and Production Management of “Cloud Computing” software for Small Business.
Our mission has been to help Accounting professionals and (Brick and Mortar and on-line) small business entrepreneurs improve their effectiveness and efficiency.
Consistent with our stated mission, in 2003 we released and have being using “websba.com” the first complete, totally integrated “web based” or as it is now called “Cloud computing” software package that included all the functions needed by a small business to: 1) Perform all the Basic accounting and Sales functions 2) Inventory and Production Management (Bills of Material, Work Orders, Inventory ordering and Sales Forecasting) 3) Time and Attendance with Payroll, 4) Fixed Asset Management with depreciation and 5) on line Shopping cart seamlessly integrated to Sales orders and Inventory functions. With this cloud computing system authorized employees accountants vendors and customers could access business records hosted in the websba.com domain, from anywhere at any time since 2003.
This websba.com, cloud computing software has now been reconfigured to integrate into any domain and to provide the same function it originally offered under the websba.com domain.
When the system is used with Microsoft Access, it provides for data base backup and “offsite safe keeping” (database downloading and uploading). That is, a user can download the database from the cloud for off-sit safe keeping and upload it to the cloud when needed. We found no other program in the internet offering such flexibility. It is ideal for “Brick and Mortar” business and for Accounting practitioners who endeavor to expand their business and practice to the cloud.

Who is using it
We are a Southern California's Information Resource Center, offering Quality Products (Custom Built Computer Systems, Networks and Services (Training, Consulting and Software) to our customers.
We have been Building-to-Order, Systems since 1985. Our experience goes back to the IBM1401. We understand user needs, and provide total solutions. Experience is our competitive edge. We use only brand name components and support everything we sell.
In 1986 we started selling our products from a store front using a manual Accounting System. We later installed packaged accounting software on our first Intel 286 based PC setup as an in-house network server to automate our invoice and purchasing processes. In the outset as systems integrators, we needed a system that would provide for inventory and production management as bought components and software packages from suppliers and integrated them to a complete system. We could find no small business packaged software meeting this basic manufacturing requirement. Over time we developed our own web based software package websba.com. We included all the basic Accounting and Production Management functions with an integrated shopping cart, Fixed Asset Management with depreciation, Time and Attendance with Payroll.
We have been using it since 2003 to effectively and efficiently manage our "brick and mortar" computer integration business as well as our real-estate rental business. Additionally, this websba.com system has been used by accounting practitioners and other small business on a subscription basis. Websba.com has now been reconfigured to install on any private domain and is made available for sale to small business that endeavor to bring the CLOUD into their office.
We originally integrated websba.com into our own web site simcom.com that is hosted on our in-house web server and it is connected to the Internet through a fast web connection. With this setup, since 2003, our customers have been making purchases by physically visiting our store in Upland or by using the integrated-on line shopping cart. ALL In house and on line entered data is seamlessly integrated into one data base. This data can be accessed securely from anywhere at any time using a web connected PC or smart phone.
The system comprises all the functions needed to run a brick and mortar and/or an on-line small business: 1) Basic accounting functions 2) Inventory and Production Management (Bills of Material, Work Orders, Inventory ordering and Sales Forecasting) 3) Time and Attendance with Payroll, 4) Fixed Asset Management with depreciation and 5) on line Sales ordering with Shopping cart. The system handles many “user accounts” that can be securely accessed on the cloud from anywhere at any time with preconfigured privileges (IDs and Passwords) that are user controllable. When the system is used with Microsoft Access, it provides for data base backup and off site safe keeping (database downloading and uploading). That is, a user can download the database from the cloud for off-sit safe keeping and upload it to the cloud when needed. We found no other program in the internet offering such flexibility. It is ideal for “Brick and Mortar” business and for Accounting practitioners who endeavor to expand their business and practice to the cloud.
