BoardCash

Your digital cash box in Logbook Suite

Man­ag­ing the board cash box is usu­ally not among the most pop­u­lar tasks on board. How­ever, one should keep track of the expenses and the cash posi­tion. And with BoardCash this is a cinch. 

In BoardCash you can enter all deposits of the crew mem­bers and all expenses from the cash box. Also spe­cial cases, such as when a crew mem­ber makes a pur­chase, with­out pay­ing from cash box, are han­dled auto­mat­i­cally. It is also very easy to enter pur­chases where the total sum also includes pri­vate pur­chases of indi­vid­ual crew mem­bers.

BoardCash also sup­ports the book­ing of expenses in which not all per­sons are involved, as well as a sim­pli­fied entry for equal deposits of sev­eral per­sons. Of course BoardCash can also take into account dif­fer­ent shares of the crew mem­bers in the board cash (e.g. for cou­ples and sin­gles in the crew).

A par­tic­u­larly use­ful fea­ture is the han­dling of mul­ti­ple cur­ren­cies. For this the cur­rent exchange rates of the ECB can be loaded into BoardCash. No mat­ter whether the trip leads through 2 or 10 cur­rency zones, BoardCash always cal­cu­lates the cor­rect cash posi­tion and the account bal­ances of the crew mem­bers in rela­tion to a fixed stan­dard cur­rency.

At the end of the trip, or when­ever you want to draw up a bal­ance sheet, you will receive the final eval­u­a­tion “Who pays what to whom” for the cash bal­ance with a tip. You can also print out or save the lists of expenses and pay­ments includ­ing any receipts as well as the eval­u­a­tion includ­ing the cash bal­ance as a PDF.

And since BoardCash is an Add-on from the Logbook Suite it can import some data directly from Logbook: the crew list, port charges, fuel costs after refu­el­ing or the pro rata costs of fuel for a trip in your Logbook.

The start win­dow offers handy func­tions for open­ing, load­ing, sav­ing, and delet­ing BoardCash files.

BoardCash as a stand-alone app for iPhone and iPad

With the iOS app BoardCash (min. iOS 13.2), which is avail­able in the Apple App Store in addi­tion to Logbook Suite, you can also use the BoardCash add-on on the iPhone

Your BoardCash files can be copied between both apps using a cloud ser­vice or iTunes as well as via our SYNC ser­vice. For SYNC we also offer spe­cial sub­scrip­tions only for BoardCash files.

The func­tions for import­ing data from the dig­i­tal logbook Logbook (crew list, port charges, fuel costs) are not shown in the app BoardCash. But as soon as your BoardCash file is opened in the app in Logbook Suite, all func­tions are avail­able as usual.

BoardCash is of course suit­able not only for the cash box on sail­ing cruises, but also for all other cases in which a group of per­sons are jointly funded—such as group travel, com­mune and much more.

The user-inter­face of the app BoardCash can be set up to Ger­man, Eng­lish, Dutch and Swedish just like Logbook Suite.

The start win­dow of the app BoardCash offers handy func­tions for open­ing, load­ing, sav­ing, and delet­ing BoardCash files.

Licenses for the Add-on BoardCash of Logbook Suite are also valid for the app BoardCash

In the demo mode of BoardCash you can cre­ate up to 9 entries (expenses and/or deposits). Enter­ing a ser­ial num­ber con­verts your trial ver­sion of BoardCash into an unlim­ited full ver­sion that can be used on all device types — both in Logbook Suite and in the app BoardCash.
