Banknote Mate is a comprehensive and reliable piece of software whose main purpose is to assist users in creating a thorough catalog of their banknotes, including every detail about the items, along with pictures or personal notes.
The application is built mainly for hobbyists who want to have a clear picture of their entire collection, as well as monitor and update it. This way, it spares users from having to manually handle the real items, which can prove damaging, particularly in the case of extremely old banknotes.
Banknote Mate features three main sections, each with their individual functions, namely 'Home', 'Collection' and 'Statistics'. Additionally, because it requires users to create a database file in which to store all the information, this can be exported and used with other similar tools easily.
The 'Home' section allows users to quickly access the multiple areas of Banknote Mate. As such, users can 'Browse Collections', or 'Add Single Record' or view 'Statistics', with a single push of a button. From the same location, users can create backups of their catalog, and restore them in case of data loss.
Using the 'Collection' tab, users can 'Add Banknotes Automatically' or 'Manually', the former requiring only that users choose a country and the issue year. Banknote Mate searches Colnect and retrieves all the matching results, letting users select the ones they were after and save the information to their database. The latter option is a more lengthy process, where users need to manually enter every detail pertaining to their banknote, along with 'Images', 'Personal' notes, like 'Price', 'Selling Value', 'Description' and others.
In the 'Statistics' area of Banknote Mate, users can get an overview of the number of records from each country, enabling them to choose between various types of charts and diagrams to display the information. Additionally, it supports 'Advanced Filters', so the charts can be customized to show only the items that users need.
To conclude, Banknote Mate is a useful and efficient utility designed to help users manage their banknote collection with ease, allowing them to add and edit each entry with the least amount of effort.
