It doesn’t matter what size your business is, what industry you’re trying to make waves in, or even how much past experience you have – solutions that help make things easier and more professional are always a must.

The barriers blocking success for small businesses are many, to the point that, although there are record numbers of new businesses starting every year, reports suggest that about half fail within 5 years. This report cites tax, access to funding, and red tape as some of the key issues pushing the success rate down. Add to this the everyday necessities that come with running a growing company, and it’s little wonder that owners and managers are always seeking out solutions that can help them in anyway.

petexpressIt’s among the many reasons why KashFlow customers love using our cloud accounting and payroll software. Not only do we provide simple and effective solutions that take the hassle out of bookkeeping and accounting. But we also help them streamline their business processes, save them huge amounts of time, and give them real power and control to chart their success.

How has KashFlow helped?

My Pet Express says KashFlow’s range of features, including invoicing, bank feeds and third party app integrations, have completely changed the way they run their accounts. The company says they now look more professional, have a better understanding of their accounts, and have more time to focus on growing than ever before.

“It mainly helps by allowing us to speed up our inputting, giving us time to focus on other things. We can give a customer a quote and take payment there and then over the phone or allow customers to pay for their good after invoicing them using the invoice payment link. We no longer have to order from suppliers by email, website or calling them. We can now simply and easily create better purchase orders, and we can even create repeat orders to suppliers for our fast moving stock. That little saving we make on our subscription each month also allows us to put a little bit more towards our marketing.”
