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 Payroll is designed as an 'open item' ledger including history files and transaction archives.

The System has a built-in set of Tax-table and NI parameters which may be used to get a 'quick-start'. Built-in self-auditing will check that the P11 history for an employee will always match the independently stored year-to-date totals for that employee.

Each year's employee P11 history can be held in a separate file. These files can be deleted to save space or can be stored indefinitely. When stored as part of the system, the archives allow a history of all payments and deductions to be printed for any of these years.

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 Payroll is designed for a maximum of 999 employees in each company, each of which may have unlimited payments in any one year. Any number of years may be stored. There may be up to 99 departments.

The Software is designed to run on PCs and network workstations running any version of Windows from 98 through to XP, Vista, 7 and Linux. The file-server may be running Windows 'Peer to Peer network', Windows Server, Windows NT, Windows 2000, Linux or Novell networking software. The Dos version of the software will run on PCs and network workstations running Windows XP, Windows 95, Windows 98, Windows ME or Dos.


Pricing, support and availability.

Prices start at 50 for a single-user Maxton Payroll (up to 10 employees). 100 for 30 employees, 150 for 100 employees, 250 for 500 employees and 350 for 999 employees. Other choices include an additional 150 for multi-company and another 150 for multi-user. 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 4 per month and are dependent on options, version and number of modules.

Leasing instead of buying the software is becoming more popular. The quarterly support contract will cover the leasing charge, telephone support, software maintenance and programme updates. Prices start at 5 per month for a single-user Maxton Payroll, through to approx. 30 for the multi-company version running on a 10-user network.

Availability is normally immediate and installation is normally carried out by the user or ourselves using the Internet or a modem-link and the PcAnywhere software to anywhere in the UK. This link is very useful for on-going support and programme updates.
