Warehouse Management Software solution for inventory

A Little History

James R. Leichter, a lifelong contractor, needed a better way to run his business. Frustrated with software that was either “one-size-fits-all” or totally overpriced, James assembled a dream team of software programmers and accounting professionals and set out to make his own software. Total Office Manager is the result of five intensive years of development and more than six more years of fine tuning. The result is a program that probably looks and functions a lot like what you may have always dreamed of owning.

Field Service Managment Software to Replace QuickBooks®

Total Office Manager was designed specifically for field services businesses that do work related to service, installation, new construction, and service agreements. Total Office Manager is built on a rock solid foundation of enterprise level accounting and contractor specific payroll. We then added hundreds of features that a service contracting company would need to run their businesses more efficiently than ever before. Features include an impressive set of modules related to core accounting plus specialty features such as dispatching, service agreements, flat rate pricing, marketing, sales lead management, CRM, proprietary reports, AIA billing, dashboards, POS, and more.

All development, marketing, sales, training, and support are done “in-house” by Aptora employees. We don’t farm anything out. We are constantly responding to the needs and wants of our clients. We release approximately one major update every two months and many other updates in between.
