introduction to adilas.biz
Adilas.biz is an online server-based application where you can store and track your data for your daily business operations and backend accounting needs. The word "adilas" is an acronym for "all data is live and searchable". Adilas.biz is a conglomeration of ideas, dreams, time, technology, and lots of hard work. It is safe to say that adilas and the tools we provide have become somewhat of a community effort. We've had hundreds and hundreds of folks chime in with great ideas, request new features, use the application on a daily basis, and give us great feedback. We are constantly searching for better and quicker ways to help you run your businesses. A huge thanks goes out to all of the people who have had a part in the dream! Keep it coming and we'll keep building... :)

We've been working on this project since 2001. It started out as a custom write-up system for a multi-location used vehicle and trailer dealership. As it grew, we found that tons of other businesses needed the same features and had the same frustrations we had already worked through. We decided to put together a full business package (data portal) and sell it to other dealers, businesses, manufacturers, retailers, distributors, and service providers for a monthly service fee. Thus, adilas.biz was born.

A modern word for what we do is an online version of "SaaS" or Software as a Service. You own your own data and have 24/7 access to the site, through a valid login and password. We at adilas, maintain the code base and the application files. We also provide all of the future upgrades and features for FREE. We use the saying, "Your data, you cache & retrieve it, we secure it".

The monthly adilas fee structure is based on your needs, the size of your business, storage requirements, and expected usage. If you have multiple locations or multiple corporations, we will work with you to help you get a great deal. Our goal is to provide you with tons of great features at a great price. Most businesses can expect to pay between $17 and $997 per month per location. No business is too small! Contact us for a quote. We also have quarterly, semi-annual, and yearly plans available. As a side note, we give a discount if you have more than one corporation using the adilas.biz platform. Switching between corporations inside of adilas is as easy as clicking a button.

The monthly fee is the only required fee to use adilas. If you want or need additional help or something custom, we can help there as well. For a small fee, we do custom data imports (customers, inventory items, vendors, etc.). We can help you create and populate custom documents (invoices, paperwork, reports, forms, pdf's, etc.). We can then tie those custom documents to any of the 12 main application players. We also have a way of setting up a custom graphical user interface that is specific to your needs. The entire adilas.biz platform is built on a foundation of user permissions and settings (corp-wide settings or individual user settings). This allows us to serve your needs without redoing the entire application for each business or industry. It makes things very flexible. Once you say "Go!", we set up your corporation, help you with your settings, and you are off to the races. The entire process is a turnkey solution.

what is adilas.biz?
We at adilas.biz have been pioneering the future of operations and accounting since 2001. It wasn't our original goal to create a new model for doing business or tracking accounting and numbers. We had a problem and needed to come up with a workable solution. Over the years, our vision has been opened and we feel that we are truly pioneering the next generation of business logic and services. We are calling it "roll call accounting" which is a linear time based model for showing who and what are playing and how they interact. Operations lead the way and each entry becomes an actual physical object that can have different checkpoints, states, and status. The "roll call" comes as part of the function of asking the objects where they were at any given date/time increment or date range. Each state and status of the object is then mapped to either on the fly or as an archived status or value. It is pretty cool!

The words "cloud computing" or "cloud accounting" weren't even invented when we were cutting our teeth and trying to solve our current business problems. Is it perfect? No, not yet! Are we making great progress and can we see where it needs to go? Absolutely! It has been one of the most fun things that we have been involved with. We could see where we wanted it to go, but did not know how to get there. We have been working with that vision of the future for over a decade now. We wanted to bring the day-to-day operations into a fully intergraded business system or business platform application.

We provide all of the tools to secure, organize, and format your data. This allows you to retrieve, view, and request it when you need it from any computer or device that can access the Internet. It is totally in the clouds and yet totally in your hands. We are available and open for service! We have tons of awesome tightly intergraded interactive tools to help you run your business and see the whole picture. We have many companies who are very happy with how adilas is tracking their inventory and providing them with real-time numbers and accounting. Check out our approach and view this revolutionary business platform in action. We are building and adding on new features all the time which are at no additional cost to you. Give us a call TODAY! Call 719.439.1761 and ask for Steve or email us at sales@adilas.biz.
Adilas.biz is currently pioneering a new type of accounting called - roll call accounting.
what makes us so different?
Many people over the years have asked us, what do you guys do? Why do you do that? Where are you trying to go? How long does that take? How can you do such and such and others can't? And what makes you so different? Those are some great questions. The answers vary depending on the time someone is willing to listen. :) This is somewhat of an inside joke, but sometimes we feel like saying "Did you pack a lunch?", meaning it can get pretty deep pretty quick.

To answer plain and simply, we are in the business of tracking people's data. We are a virtual data portal. The word "data" means different things to different people. The word "adilas" also means different things to different people. To some it may be CRM functionality (Customer Relationship Management). To others it might be inventory, sales and POS information (Point Of Sale). To others it might be ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning) or backend office functions. To others; general operations tracking, JIT inventory tracking (Just In Time), manufacturing, online expense tracking, business intelligence (BI), paperless office, document management, a CMS (Content Management System), financial data and reports, paperwork, payroll, timecards, scheduling, etc. Because we say we track "data", we need to be as deep and diverse as the term itself.

Our goal is to help you, as a user or a company, get in, get out, and be happy. Along the way, and depending on what you consider to be data, we try to help show you the whole picture of what is going on. If what we have helps you out, great! If not, that's ok. We enjoy sharing what we have learned. The adilas.biz business platform is a huge integrated tool set that allows you to play in multiple different areas. It is very scaleable and caters to custom settings and different permission levels. Your use of the system, depends on you and your needs.

The words "system" or "platform" denote more than one piece working together in harmony. A full system allows you to do things that others can't do, simply because everything may not be there.

One of our biggest strengths is helping you get your data into the system. Once in, it becomes part of the big picture. Data coming in usually means some form of "operations" or the day-to-day business that happens. We love this and have a strong focus on helping on the operation side of the equation. We try very hard to follow a logical or linear model in helping you to get your data in and out of the system as quickly and easily as possible.

We also offer some great backend office tools and accounting features. If truth be known, the reason we are able to offer you accounting-type features is directly related to how we track your data and help you do your operations. We, at adilas.biz, are actively working on a new and more modern model for accounting as compared to the current, somewhat antiquated, double entry accounting system embraced by most companies. We can run your operations regardless if you use adilas for your accounting needs or not. If you are looking for a traditional credits and debits accounting system, we may not be your product other than for your operational needs. However, if you are willing to try a more modern and nontraditional approach to accounting, you will love what we do and where we are headed. Straight up, it is new and different and we are still pioneering on a daily basis.

Here is a little background on the traditional double entry accounting model that dates back to the fifteenth century (500+ years old). Luca Pacioli, an Italian monk (friar) wrote one of the first math text books called "Summa de Arithmetica". In that book he explained about how the Italian merchants kept track of their sales which we now call "double entry accounting". This guy was a genius and a math wizard for his time. Here is the kicker, this text book came out in 1494. Two years prior to that, Christopher Columbus, in 1492 sailed the ocean blue to show people that the world was round. People were just coming out of the dark ages and entering into the age of the Renaissance. The only way that businesses could track their "data" was in giant notebooks called journals and ledgers. They had large rooms with tons of paper copies and went through different processes of recording, adjusting, and posting their data between the different journals and ledgers. Sound familiar?

Basically, they were trying to track different states and statuses of the data. Some of the processes that they used to track these changes and states of the data were called "debits" (negatives) and "credits" (positives). These debits and credits were added to things called "T Accounts". The different T Accounts made up a bigger thing called the "Chart of Accounts". The Chart of Accounts usually had a numeric value and a name associated with it. This is how they tracked things, on paper and in different notebooks. These Chart of Accounts were then added up and used in financial documents called the "Income Statement" (profit and loss statement or P&L) and the "Balance Sheet". The goal was to make sure that everything got recorded and accounted for. In order to make things balance, they had to do one entry on one side and then a matching entry on the other side of the T Accounts. Thus the term "double entry accounting". This standard has been followed for years and is currently the accepted way to do accounting. As a mater of fact, most computer systems that do some form of accounting, have basically computerized the 500 year old model and added their own little tweaks to the process.

So what makes us so different? Well, we spent the first five years working on operations. The original goal had nothing to do with accounting. The goal was to start tracking inventory and other data. We wanted to be able to quickly view things, pull reports, and even be able to show where that data was or what had happened to it over time. Through a step-by-step approach to solving our own business problems, we stumbled upon a new way of doing accounting. Basically, once we had the operations in place (this is a big key), we just kept asking the question, what happens next? We would then build the system out to that level. As we kept going, the path began to be rolled out and we just kept taking the next logical steps. This process took years and years and was only possible because we kept working at it. Concepts that were only a dream or a wish started to be right in front of us and we simply reached out and grabbed them.

Adilas can virtually track objects and data over time without using the old double entry accounting model. We still simulate some of the pieces of that model, but we do not have any journals, legers, T Accounts, Chart of Accounts, and other standard accounting features that are considered traditional requirements. We don't use the words debit or credit and we try to use as few adjustments as possible. We use technology, good data, flags, dates, checkpoints, approvals, permissions, and business mapping to run things in a linear fashion. Every entry or data object has a life-cycle and we simply track it. We are then able to go back in time and virtually ask the objects or items questions. What's your story? Who created you? Where have you been? Where are you headed? Who are your buddies? Where do you belong? When did you finish? What is your value? And the list goes on. We call it "roll call accounting". At the end of the day, we still produce an Income Statement (profit and loss or P&L) and Balance Sheet. We just arrived there through mapping data and running objects over time.

We are still pioneering and developing steps to the roll call accounting process. We've had a blast creating it and we can't wait to share it with you! Although our accounting system is not completely finished (fully automated to the highest level), we have had many companies happily use it for years. We just keep adding new pieces that make it better and better. Remember, our main goal in providing the adilas.biz system or platform is to help you track your data. Adilas can help you with your operations, accounting, or both. The model is open and flexible.

We invite you to check it out. We would be happy to meet with you in person or give you a live online demo. Give us a call TODAY! Call 719.439.1761 and ask for Steve or email us at sales@adilas.biz.

If you want more information, there is a brief history document of the making of adilas at the bottom of the page. It is a short 6 page read that tells the story of what happened when and who was involved. It has been a wonderful journey thus far and we're still going!

Just for fun, we wanted to list a few of the core concepts if you don't want to read the history document. This is just for fun... :)

When we first started, back in 2001, our original goal was inventory tracking. As things progressed, one of our main goals was to figure out a way to help fill the gap or create a "bridge" between operations and accounting. There seemed to be a very large and visible disconnect between what was happening in the field (operations) and what the final output was (accounting and final numbers). In one of our brainstorming meetings, we came up with the analogy of a "zipper". One side of the zipper was operations and the other side was accounting. Our goal was to start bringing them together one cog at a time, like a zipper being pulled upwards until it came together.

We came up with the theory "track every penny in and track every penny out". With this thought in mind, we started to track each penny from start to finish. What we found was that every transaction had a life-cycle that it went through. We decided to enter the items and data as easily as possible on the operations side and then track it through a number of steps until it found itself finished or completed. Along the way, we started time-stamping each step with a flag and a date. Each flag and date combo became what we called a "checkpoint". As each new flag was added, we would lock the prior steps below that based on permissions.

This process of passing data from checkpoint to checkpoint, based on permissions, is how we track your data. A great analogy of this process is if you imagine what it takes for water to turn into ice. This process doesn't happen all at once, it needs to go through different phases, states, or status levels. As your data passes through these different phases, called checkpoints, we simply help you flag and date the data as it runs over time. Just like the ice analogy, the water droplets are very loose at first "operations" and slowly become crystals, then slush, and finally become completely frozen or ice "final numbers and accounting".

We then use a process called "roll call accounting" to virtually map backwards in time to where the data was at a given date or time. Another synonymous term for roll call accounting is data mapping. The reason we use the term roll call accounting is because that is what we ask the computer to do. Imagine data that is flagged and dated as it goes through certain checkpoints. Pretend that the computer is an army General giving out a roll call or a flag/status report. The computer says, "I need all of the invoices that were not fully paid at such and such a date to step forward". Only these invoices would then be counted - based on flags and dates. You could then use the computer to do the math and give you the totals you need. Each time you want more information, you simply tell the computer what criteria to use for the roll call and eventually it will tell you the story of what is going on.

To sum things up "literally", by keeping track of your normal day-to-day operations, we can get very complex results like aging, histories, usage, reports, final numbers, and accounting. Thus the accounting becomes the date sensitive sum of the details. These values are what make up your "Business Intelligence (BI)" or "Big Data" concepts. It all comes back to managing and tracking your data. Because every piece of the puzzle still exists in the database, you are able to virtually go back in time and see what was where and when it moved out of each checkpoint. If the data is correct, let it flow. If a modification is needed, make the correction, lock it down, and let it keep flowing. The accounting becomes more of a check and stamp of approval rather than entering numbers from different journals or locations. When you put it all together, what do you know... All Data Is Live And Searchable.

Allowing operations to lead is a huge key. It is like letting a horse lead a cart instead of the other way around.
Imagine the process of water turning into ice. The water droplets are very loose at first (operations) and slowly become crystals, then slush, and finally becoming completely frozen or ice (final numbers or accounting).
Our world is made up of tons of one-to-many relationships. The business world is set up in the same way.
Think of the system like a bird's eye view looking down on the data stream. You are able to watch the show from up high, ground level, or actually getting down and diving into the details.
