Getting Started

Running Ice Ledger for the first time.

Welcome to Ice Ledger. To login, select the appropriate company from the Select Company drop-down box and enter your login details. If this is your first time, after installation then you can select the supplied company, Yorvic or the _Demo company and log in as iceledger using iceledger as the password - remember both the user name and passwords are case (UPPER and lower) sensitive.

If you have not already done so, you should watch the short video on YouTube to get a quick overview of the system.

The installation comes ready with the fictitious company Yorvic Systems Ltd, supplying stainless steel pipe and fittings so that you can jump straight into test driving the system without being bogged down in having to setup a new company and system configuration from scratch, before you've even had the chance to get familiar with the system.

Demo Company.

Copy to Demo menu

In addition to this fictitious company, Yorvic, the system also has a demo company, _Demo. Whenever, you are logged in to another company, you can clone your company by copying the data to this demo company. This is a very useful feature when you are trying to do something that you are not familiar with or confident about. Simply copy the company data to the demo copmpany (Utilities, Copy to Demo Company), Log out of the system and log back into the _Demo company. Because this is now an exact copy of your other company, the login details will be the same as those for the company that you copied. Once you have tested your procedure and are happy to proceed, you can log back in to your actual company and continue with confidence. The demo company is also very useful for training staff because they can work on, what is in effect, real live company data and you can assured of the fact that whetever mistakes or errors are made, they will not affect your actual company data.
