Usage conditions apply
Desktop Plan was software for the Apple II computer written by Don Williams in 1980 and distributed by Personal Software, Inc., of Sunnyvale, California. The documentation binder includes a 5.25" diskette and a user manual. With Desktop Plan, the development of business analysis reports such as budgets, cost/price analysis, sales forecasts, profit/loss projections, and cash flow planning could be completed quickly and easily. Customized reports could be used to test many alternatives by simply changing data values. The software required no programming knowledge--the user selected functions from a menu and answered the follow-up questions.
