My main objective as a TurboCASH consultant in Zimbabwe is to show SMEs the power of using an Open source accounting package to manage their business. The biggest challenge that SMEs face is the integration of an Accounting package and their existing financial control module (manual), no matter how flawed it is the two should co-exist and should be systematically improved.   I recently met a prospect who had both Pastel and Quickbooks but was not using them because of lack of knowledge and sheer negligence of the supplier. Lets learn from their mistakes.

I agree,

what i would like to know is, as a consultant would it be ok to use the TurboCash logo on my blog, website, facebook page and maybe business card? 

I really really wana get involved in suggesting some GUI features for the next version of turbo cash.

I have a farm in Africa
