Kapital is our personal finance manager package for KDE and Linux. It is meant to be in the spirit of Intuit Quicken or Microsoft Money, but without the bloat associated with those packages from years of justifying upgrades. Kapital has everything you need for managing all your personal finances. Kapital has been tested with various other window managers including GNOME, and will work with them, however our area of focus and support is currently KDE.
[Ed: This is commercial software, see below for price info.]
Kapital features include:
- Check register for entering and clearing various types of transactions such as checks, deposits, ATM, EFT, etc.
- Calendar for setting up scheduled payments, used in conjunction with a "Bill Tracker" alarm to let you know that bills are coming due.
- Check and report printing, including graphics and logos.
- Basic and advanced searching capabilities and online reporting as well as charts and graphs.
- Predefined categories for transactions. Include sub-categories, and the ability for users to create and delete new categories.
- New account wizard that goes through various types of budget scenarios like Single, Married, Married with Children, Single with Children, etc.
- Import/Export features for Quicken QIF file format.
- Budget Tracker. The user sets up a budget for various items, and alarms can sound when you come within a threshold, or exceed it for defined time periods, typically a calendar month. This would usually happen when you are entering a new transaction into a category and the amount causes it to exceed the threshold. You can also do charts, graphs and reports that show where you are in the time period for your budget so you can see if you are ahead, behind, or spot on.
- Check Designer. This feature is very much in development, but you will be able to use a web page to design your own checks and then have them delivered to you as you would with any third party check printing company.
- Create any type of account to manage. This can be a checking account, savings account, stock, investment, retirement, etc.
- Online Banking. As we develop partnerships with financial institutions you will get to take more and more advantage of online banking -- with the ultimate goal of having the ability of paying your bills and sending money between various types of accounts all from your desktop.
