System design philosophy.

We have always designed our software systems with the User in mind. This has resulted in a very simple and easily understood 'menu' approach where the operator can easily see what the choices and options are without having to remember a great deal. All the sophisticated systems and flexibility have been built-in in the background where the user is not aware and hence not overwhelmed by complexity. This allows the system to be good for 'first-time' users who don't want to be confused, yet it has many features and flexibility only found in the 'high-end' packages costing many times more.

The Maxton Book-keeping modules are designed to work together in an integrated fashion to provide a complete management system.



For most small and medium size businesses there are no practical limits or restrictions. The Maxton CIS Online Filing is designed for a maximum of 2000 subcontractors in each company.

The Ver. 6.x Software is designed to run on PCs and network workstations running any version of Windows from 98 through to XP and Vista. The file-server may be running Windows XP, Windows 'Peer to Peer network', Windows NT, Windows 2000 or Novell networking software.

Prices start at 150 for a single PAYE Reference with up to 50 subcontractors, 250 for up to 250 subcontractors and 350 for over 250 subcontractors. For the multi-company version add 75 per PAYE Ref. For the multi-user version add 150. All prices are sterling and normally include 90 days unlimited software maintenance and telephone support. Standard, on-going support contracts are offered each year and are billed quarterly. Support prices start at 10 per month and are dependent on options, version and number of modules.
