My name is Carrie Daley, and I would like to share a couple things about me that you may not know. Before I was a game developer, I got my Bachelor’s Degree in Accounting and spent 6 years working full time as an accountant. So it is no surprise that with my background I’m the one who takes care of the bookkeeping for Nacelle Games.
Over the past couple years, I have created dozens of Excel spreadsheets to help keep track of all the different things we need to take care of... from tracking sales per month for each of our projects, to making sure if we earn above a certain threshold per quarter that we pay the appropriate license fees to tool vendors, and also keeping up with payroll for employees and contractors. There are so many details to keep track of that the only way to keep up with it all is with a dozen or more spreadsheets, or pay an accountant to do it for you.
But not anymore! Today I am happy and excited to announce “Level-UP: Game Development Accounting Software” for iOS and OS X. I am leading the project here at Nacelle Games, and we’re already hard at work developing Level-UP!
Level-UP will feature a tracking system for Employees, Payroll, Income and Expenses, both per project and for your whole company. The application will utilize cutting edge database and data analysis technologies to be be able to summarize information about the status of each project, each employee’s payroll, and your entire company’s overall financial health. And all of this will be able to be exported in beautiful PDF reports you can save or email.
I could go on and on about how amazing Level-UP will be, but I’ll wrap up my blog post by saying again how incredibly happy and excited I am about Level-UP. Please sign up for the Level-UP newsletter below, so we can let you know more information about Level-UP and you can be among the first to know when we’ll be having our open beta later this year.
