How does the web app look and feel to use?

KashFlow has a rather lighthearted, yet professional design that uses an out of place pink and blue color scheme. The data is presented in an organized manner, with much text and basic data entry fields and drop down boxes. The color scheme actually feels a little out of place given the purpose and rather plain design of the application. After getting beyond the soft blue and pink hues, the user must also scour columns and lists of numbers and information to find what they need. The application uses no modern visual design elements (such as stylish charts or graphs).

How does the registration process work?

A new user can try KashFlow by clicking the blue “Start Trial” button in the upper, right hand corner of the homepage. The registration form on the following page asks the user for a desired username, company name, contact name, email address and telephone number. The user is also asked how they heard about the application and must check the terms and conditions box at the bottom of the form. The next form asks the user to provide a password, memorable word, VAT registration number (if they have one) and optional promotional code. The user can login after submitting the form.
