Hello all,
I am making a software for automating the task of a small office owned by a company secretary.
The automation includes:
1 Client Management
2. Billing & Receivables Management
3. Team Management
4. User Management
5. Attendance management
6. Expense Management
7. Inventory Management

I need a good short name for my software.. Could any one please suggest me some names??

Thanks in advance.

Sounds like backoffice software - how about Smithers, the assistant always ready to do his master's bidding?

Thanks Ulf Dittmer for the suggestion
I have also thought about acronyms of the functions the software is required to perform..
Like "CIBET" Manager Pro or "CIBET Ace Pro"
and one more "Office-Wing Pro"

With all due respect, those sound boring. If this is indeed backoffice software -meaning, no customer will ever see it- then there's no reason you shouldn't have fun with it.

Dagwood Bumstead is, officially, an office manager; there are two names right there

How short ? 2 words, 4 ?

Suggestions - Automatic Office, AutoOffice, AutoOffice Pro.

BTW, can you please tell us:

2 - Time and number of people in the project.

Thank you and good luck
