invoiceit is a range of business and accounting software, first written in 1998 by Bernard Reber of The Scrambled Card Company from Auckland, New Zealand. The software is sold on a try-before-you-buy basis.
The Scrambled Card Company was founded in 1991 with the aim of marketing its own range of novel and humorous greeting cards (a fully assembled picture puzzle on which the sender would add their own comments, then scramble the card and mail the pieces in an envelope). This venture was only moderately successful and in 1993, using the original name, the company changed direction and began to develop custom database applications using MS Access (which had just been introduced). Invoiceit grew out of this work, incorporating their stable database elements that had been tested in the field. The company has been a member of Association of Software Professionals since 2003.
