Microtron Ltd - IT Solutions - NZ


This program uses the new TronListViewLibrary dll. Some minor bugs are expected as is further development. This library has its own paint method and is not derived from listview. Thus more flexibility is achieved.

The typical use of this program is to remind the user by email about a periodic invoice to send or a payment to make. Once action is taken the program can be updated for the next stage to occur, such as receive payment or a receipt. Once a pattern is set it is possible for the program to add new periodic events a year or two ahead, following the same pattern. If this is done the process continues until it is deactivated and an end date is reached.


Remindertron is priced at $40 NZ per computer. You may however test the program for suitability for free. There are no deactivated features while testing.

For certain parts of USA and other places please pay sales tax to your government if appropriate.


This software is available in USA, Australia, Japan and in Canada BC and Q.
